Comedian Miller performs Thursday

The man touted as Canada’s Aboriginal King of Comedy, Howie Miller, is set to perform his hilariously brazen, sometimes unabashedly cringe-inducing, act on Thursday in Red Deer.

The man touted as Canada’s Aboriginal King of Comedy, Howie Miller, is set to perform his hilariously brazen, sometimes unabashedly cringe-inducing, act on Thursday in Red Deer.

The Edmonton resident has been wowing crowds at all the major Canadian comedy festivals, including Winnipeg, Halifax and the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.

As one of Canada’s top standup acts, Miller has performed for audiences around the world for more than a decade. As well, he’s on the APTN hit sketch comedy show Caution: May Contain Nuts, where he also serves as a writer.

Miller often plays up his unique outlook on life, being native and a minority in his own country. He’s known for eschewing political correctness by poking fun at stereotypes of aboriginals as panhandlers or drunks.

“How are you guys liking the land still? You like it? I love what you’ve done with it,” he cracked to a largely Caucasian crowd in Halifax.

Miller put his sense of humour and his experience as an impressionist to work in taping a Showtime special in Los Angeles called No Reservations Needed. It was the first all-native standup comedy show in American television history.

Miller performs at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Centre. Tickets are $46.30 from Black Knight Ticket Centre.
