Canada’s “Man Mountain of Comedy,” K Trevor Wilson, is finding it’s a great day for hay in Canadian television. Besides his regular gig as “Squirrely Dan” on the Crave hit Letterkenny, he’s now one of the three judges on CTV Comedy’s hilarious new reality competition series Roast Battle Canada.
Wilson has earned his spot on the judges panel beside fellow comics Russell Peters and Sabrina Jaleels. He’s gone deep on the original American version of Roast Battle, making the quarter finals before celebrity judges such as Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogan.
On this podcast episode, he talks about performing no-holds-barred insult comedy in woke times. Wilson basically says you have to be able to take a vicious joke to tell one, and his skin is roast battle ready.
After a "Letterkenny Live" North American comedy tour was cut short due to COVID in 2020, he’s looking forward to getting on the road again with Jared Keeso, Nathan Dales, Mark Forward and others starting in February. Shows begin in Kitchener in Canada before going on to Boston, New York, Chicago, Nashville and all over the United States. Turns out you don’t have to be from Listowel, Ontario, to get these chippy Canadian slackers and hockey toughs. As Wilson says, “Funny is funny.”
He also shares his current TV binge plus his all-time favourite TV theme song.
