Hotz to Trot: Legendary Canadian comic brings his act (and his dog) to Victoria

Jeremy Hotz comes to town with the Dangerously Handsome Tour

You know you’ve got confidence as a performer when you’re embarking upon something called the Dangerously Handsome Tour.

Gemini Award-winning Canadian comic Jeremy Hotz, whose previous tour name reached in the opposite direction – International Man of Misery – has reason to be confident. Having sold out the national Misery tour and five previous ones, he brings a suitcase full of success to Victoria’s McPherson Playhouse on Jan. 26, presented by Just for Laughs.

Armed with an international resume that includes gigs writing for The Jon Stewart Show, being a regular at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival between 1997 and 2013, late night U.S. TV appearances and acting roles in feature films and TV specials, Hotz brings with him his long-haired Chihuahua, Shackleton the Wonderdog, whom he bills as the “world’s smallest service animal.”

While his trademark “life is hard” style leaves audiences everywhere in stitches, offstage Hotz has spoken about the challenges he faces with anxiety and mental health issues. Shackleton is his constant companion and assists him in dealing with that, not to mention playing a great second banana.

Tickets for Hotz’ show start at $60.50 each and are available online at rmts.bc.ca, by phone at 250-386-6121 or in person at the McPherson or Royal Theatre box offices.
