Not of this earth or simply full of fudge: you decide. Direct from Brantford, Ontario, he’ll have you convicted and healed all at once.
“Frost’s standup has the quality of a satanic revival meeting. He brings so much bile and venom to the stage it can be overwhelming. Frost is at his best when he tempers his barbs with a little finesse and ast night he showed this technique off to great effect. He is considered to be among the most daring comedians in Canada.”
