    In 1999 Jason=92s face was immortalized as the whacky, Jim Carrey like
    =93Mr. Paramount=94, the face of the Paramount Comedy Channel. He soon
    became a popular personality on British television hosting on the BBC,
    Disney Channel ITV and even performing at London=92s Royal Albert Hall
    in front of an audience of 5000. Then came the biggest upset in
    Canning family history=85 Jason moved to LA! The minute the ink dried
    on his green card Jason got to work, starting at E! Entertainment
    narrating their long running movie review show, Extreme Close-Up and
    spilling the celebrity gossip on Gone Bad. Upon setting foot on the
    new continent Jason brought his fish out of water tales of life in
    America to the comedy stage and embarked on his life-long dream of
    becoming a stand-up comic. From years of hitting stages big & small
    across the country Jason=92s clean comedy has a wide appeal and can only
    be described as what would happen if you crossed Jim Carrey with Hugh
    Grant, hilarious & polite! Jason never holds back on stage and feels
    life has come full circle now where cracking up a room full of people
    only brings him more work instead of detention! Teaming up with
    fellow Brit comic Natalie Gray (appearing at San Pedro BrewHaHa
    November 7 and 8) they wrote and starred in a half hour comedy pilot
    called No Talent Required.

    She hit the stage at age 12 in the UK and starred as Aladdin at age 13
    (the only member of an all adult theatre company). When her father's
    rock star lifestyle almost broke up the family, the Grays moved to
    Canada where a more normal family life could finally begin. In
    Canada, Natalie continued to flourish, winning a national modeling
    contest at 18, being cast as a lead in a teen soap and doing a
    successful 3 year run as a host on live children=92s television!
    Natalie has since done over 100 episodes of Canadian television and
    been nominated for 6 ACTRA awards for hosting, interviewing and
    acting. She studied for 2 years with Toronto=92s Second City,
    following which she had her own successful improv troupe. Natalie
    studied acting in Toronto, Frankfurt, New York and L.A. where she now
    lives. A rare breed of comic, funny and clean, her innocent, bright
    persona and compelling facial and physical dynamics draw frequent
    comparisons to Lucille Ball.
