Todd Butler is a CBC veteran and award winning comedy songwriter with more than 20 years experience in musical theatre, comedy clubs, street performance, and special events. Renowned for his razor wit, he is the Prince of Parody, Sultan of Satire, Master of Mimicry, Virtuoso of Voices, and quite an amazing guitar player! In reality, anyone who has experienced a Todd Butler performance knows that they’ve seen one of the most dynamic, innovative, and talented performers in Canada. By applying an outrageously creative musical brand of social commentary to a vast array of subjects, Todd’s shows are hysterically funny and bitingly satirical.
With his many years of live performance experience as both a musician/vocalist and a comedian, Todd’s skills are finely tuned to an exquisite point and he swings easily from lambasting politicians in hilarious political parodies to interpreting the latest news story with a twist. It’s all done with careful consideration of appropriate musical style, cleverly chosen send-ups, and whimsical wit! Each performance is crafted to entertain you with a stunning combination of musical parody, outstanding musicianship, and outrageous political satire.
