A witty and gifted performer, Elliott aims at connecting with his audiences by sharing with them the idiosyncrasies of our world and by bringing into perspective the challenges facing each and everyone. His performance of music and comedy is perfectly suitable for any audience.

Canadian born Lorne Elliott has performed all across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Starting as a writer and folk musician, he went on writing comedic material and staged it as one-man shows. The result of such training is a well-crafted show of comedy & music theatre: totally original, entertaining and uplifting.

His current concert performance, titled "The Collected Mistakes 2006-2007" is a one-man performance of humour, storytelling and music. The script is a work of thought-provoking contemporary satire: witty, clever and fast-paced. Lorne Elliott's stage persona, a contrast of crazed intellectual and extravagant jester is both outlandish and charming. The performance is a blend of comedic mayhem and superbly silly performance art.

His work caught the attention of CBC Radio who aired one of his concert performances on "Definitely Not The Opera": it was greeted with such enthusiasm all across the country that it was rebroadcast on "Sunday Showcase" and "Morningside". In 1996, he starred in his own CBC Radio Comedy Series titled "Madly Off in all Directions". It was greeted with such enthusiastic audience response that the program went on for 11 Seasons, till fall 2006. His latest project for CBC is titled "Chasing the Big Silly".

Lorne has been featured on numerous Theatre Arts festivals, he is also an award-winning playwright and his plays are regularly produced across Canada.
