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, CBC’s The Debaters and recently 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 Films.
