Best of Halifax

Best Comedian

Mark Little

“Whatever personal recognition I get I defer to the group,” says the modest Mark Little of Picnicface, the white-hot comedy troupe that’s getting recognition both in and outside the city, thanks to their sketch comedy and the popular videos available online. Of his own style in his stand-up, he embraces the “anti-slick”, inspired by comedians like the acerbic Patton Oswalt that resist the ‘80s-style comedy where you have no idea who the person is behind the humour. “It doesn’t have that same shine and polish,” he says. “My main goal is to simultaneously be both funny and original.”

First runner up: Candy Palmeter

Second runner up: Cathy Jones
