Former fighter pilot flies again...but this time the thrill comes from making people laugh. After growing up in Winnipeg, graduating from Royal Roads Military College in Victoria, following which he was an Air Force pilot in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and on Vancouver Island, Barry Kennedy had the opportunity to suss out our great land even before he started acting and doing stand-up comedy in every nook and cranny Canada has to offer.

Kennedy has appeared in over thirty movies and TV productions, headlined at Canadian and US clubs from coast to coast, and spoken at functions for everyone from golfers to peacekeeping troops, corporate executives to trial lawyers.

He has written three novels"”Through the Deadfall, The Hindmost and most recently Rock Varnish"”and recently was seen as the host of Discovery Channel’s Out in the Cold, in which he gets to indulge his passion for the country by meeting people who live in work in frigid climates from the Yukon to Puvirnituq and Newfoundland to the high arctic of Ellesmere Island.

A never-ending delight to his listeners, Kennedy keeps his audiences in stitches as he plays with life’s quaint ironies, from the quirks of relationships, to family matters, to all things Canadian.
