Fundraiser stars former Terrace resident

A FORMER resident who’s now a well-known comedian is looking for a sellout at his upcoming fundraiser show for a friend with cancer.

Ian Bagg graduated with Kim Kaye and heard on facebook about her friends raising money to help her with her cancer treatment and care and he offered to help.

He will squeeze Terrace in when he performs in Vancouver and his performance is not all there will be.

Bagg has friends who work for several NHL teams and he will have signed hockey jerseys to raffle off for the fundraiser as well, he said.

They will include LA Kings jerseys and St. Louis and maybe Miami and Tampa ones too, he said.

Bagg grew up here before moving to Vancouver where he went to school and worked as a comedian.

He lived in New York six years and has now been in Los Angeles now for six years. His parents still live here and he hears from them about what’s going on here.

Bagg helped raise money for the new sheet of ice and for the music foundation.

Bagg had his own talk show special on Comedy Central and has been on several late night shows, including Conan O’Brien and Craig Ferguson. A pilot for an A&E show called Ian Bagg Gets a Job is set to premiere in the future.

He’s seen fundraisers and other shows sell out here and said he will be disappointed if his fundraiser for Kaye doesn’t sell out too. For details on Bagg’s show, see Fundraiser under City Scene on page 21.
