Producer | Storyteller | Writer
Here is a story I did for True Stories (Told Live) Toronto hosted by Marsha Shandur.
How it all started
Canadian Comedy Award recipient Briane Nasimok, has been telling stories from an early age, a talent he primarily used in those days to get out of trouble. When he was ten, Briane went to live theatre for the first time which inspired him to pursue his dream – but instead it led him to an usual career, appearing in over 30 operas and nearly 300 performances, without uttering a word. Canada’s Foremost Operatic Mute went on to a career in stand-up comedy as one of the earliest featured performers at Yuk Yuks. He is an award-winning television writer/producer with shows ranging from Sesame Street to The Giller Prize and was 9th runner up in CTV’s Thrill of a Lifetime’s Male Beauty Pageant. His life experience as a mute performer led to the creation of an acclaimed one-person show.
