"Hamilton-hatched stand up mutant Jason Rouse is the evil Jim Carrey, but he's smarter and light years funnier!" - NOW Magazine
Perhaps the most controversial comedian in the world, Canadian shock comic Jason Rouse, is taking over the Asylum in a show unlike any Sudbury's ever seen! The event is being hosted by none other than Canadian award winning comedian Darren Frost. This is going to be the comedy show of the year folks, and you don't want to miss this opportunity to witness whom Andrew Dice Clay has dubbed, "The Terminator of Comedy" live in your hometown. A no holds barred show you'll never forget!
Jason Rouse is a renegade touring stand-up comedian taking the mainstream comedy world and turning it upside down. Over the last decade, this comedy outsider has been sharpening his teeth in clubs and festivals all over the world.
Rouse has made it his mission to forge a new road and write a new chapter in stand up comedy. Middle of the road mainstream comedy is left for dead. Instead, this Jester from Hell has been unleashed onto international stages with all of the power of a derailed comedy freight train.

We are sure he is going to love The Asylum and are stoked to have him perform for you all on our stage.

"I want people leaving, shaking their heads saying, 'That's the strangest thing I've ever seen'" - Jason Rouse


Brantford Comedian

Darren Frost (born January 21, 1971) is a Canadian actor and stand-up comedian. He frequently performs at Yuk-Yuks comedy clubs, and he competed in the 2007 Seattle International Comedy Competition. Darren is known for his eccentricity and often extremely taboo material; he describes his aim as being "to slam a stapler against the forehead of popular culture."
Darren thrives on hyper-driving criticisms, dark revelation and lunacy. His ability to command the undivided attention of an audience is remarkable. He is currently touring celebrating the release of his online store Comedywhorestore.com which includes his box set The Darkness Within: 25 hours of uncensored comedy.  He is the only comedian in Canada to independently release four full length standup comedy DVD’s.
