Mini Bio (1)

Canadian stand-up comedian and writer Harry Doupe was born and raised in the quaint town of Fort Langley, British Columbia and began his comedy career shortly after moving to Vancouver. Over the next few years, he developed a reputation as one of the country's hardest working comics, spending 46 weeks on the road in 1986 alone.

Through the 1990s Doupe appeared in such television shows as Comics! (1993), "Comedy On The Road" and Off the Record (1997) and also became one of the most in-demand writers in the country with his extensive knowledge of sports, music, and pop culture making him a perfect fit for awards shows. The next years would see him write more than twenty, including numerous Junos, Geminis, NHL Awards and Genies.

An award-winning comedian and writer, Doupe has performed at Expo '86, the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, the 1995 Grey Cup in Regina, and opened numerous times for "The Tragically Hip", one of Canada's most popular bands. Doupe has performed at Molson Park in Barrie and became the first comedian to play Toronto's Air Canada Centre three times, appearing once with Weird Al Yankovic and twice with the Tragically Hip during their 1999/2000 New Years shows.

In recent years, he has continued to both write and perform, doing both on Toronto 1's The Toronto Show (2003) (for which he won a 2004 Canadian Comedy Award as a writer). He also acted as head writer for the CBC's Tsunami Fund-raiser "Canada For Asia", and most recently was producer for the series Hockeyville (2006).

Having previously lived in Vancouver and San Francisco, as of 2009 he resides in Toronto.
