He’s a comedian, writer, producer and actor most recognizable from his interviews as a fake news correspondent on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes. The Montreal Gazette featured Abdul as 2014’s upcoming artist to look for and The National Post quoted a former controversial premier of Quebec calling Abdul “crazy” after he called her his favorite comedian.
Butt’s humor has earned him nominations for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Writers Guild of Canada Award. He can be heard on Sirius XM, and CBC’s The Debaters. He sold a web-series that was hand-picked at the Just For Laughs Festival by Kevin Hart for his new “Laugh Out Loud” network in collaboration with Lionsgate Film. He most recently signed with Comedy Here Often? podcast network, of 604 Records, from Vancouver, BC.
