Comedian Jeremy Hotz
When Jeremy Hotz stands at the mic, he rubs his eyes, gnaws his palm, mumbles darkly and generally seems to be on the edge of a total nervous breakdown. And yet it's the audience who goes crazy, breaking down into hysterics at his eccentric observations, befuddled mannerisms and off-the-cuff brilliance. Known, for good reason, as "Mr. Standing Ovation," the native Canadian has appeared on The Tonight Show, Letterman, The Daily Show and his own special on Comedy Central. Hotz has toured throughout Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Now, after taping his most recent special, What A Miserable Show This Is ..., he brings his hilarious pessimism live to the Comedy Works South stage.
