CCC Student Senate hosts LANDRY

LandryClinton Community College welcomes Landry to the college on Wednesday, January 22 from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. in the Auditorium, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton.

Landry is best recognized for his likable hair, sprouting from charismatic follicles. He is a Canadian-born interracial love child whose hybrid existence, when mixed with a little dysfunction, makes for a fantastic recipe of comedy goulash. Taking in inspiration from personal life experiences, Landry’s writing style carries a unique and passionate tone. His conversational comedy style appeals to people from all walks of life, age groups and ethnic backgrounds. Originally from Canada, Landry relocated to Atlanta in 2007 to pursue his career in the entertainment industry. After sharing a few laughs in front of a small audience, he realized he had found his calling in comedy. Since then, he has performed at comedy clubs all over the continent, as well as colleges, cruise ships and international corporate functions.

His thirst for the limelight began while still living in Toronto. Before being bit by the comedy bug, Landry landed a speaking role in an episode of Earth Final Conflict and shot a series of commercials. He realized then that he was born to entertain. Since on the comedy scene, he has added to his list of television credits. He has been seen on the Canadian Comedy Network, Season 3 of “Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes” and the latest season of “Off the Chain” on Bounce TV.

Landry has been making a name for himself in the comedy world since his arrival. He has performed in several festivals and competitions over the past few years. He was a finalist in the 2009 Great Canadian Laugh Off and in 2011 he took the win at the Boston Comedy Festival. In 2012 he won the World Series of Comedy and was a finalist in the Miller Lite Stands Up Competition, as well as the Seattle Comedy Competition. In the Spring of 2013, Landry was invited to perform at the opening gala for the prestigious Halifax Comedy Festival and later on that year, he was chosen to headline at the Laughyourashevilleoff Comedy Festival.

This energetic performer has had the opportunity to work alongside many talented comedians over the years. Some of these comics include Jon Reep, Dov Davidoff and Greg Fitzsimmons. He became an accomplished emcee by honing in on his skills during the first few years on the stage. With a natural knack for funny, he was soon headlining clubs such as The Punchline, Zanies and Goodnights, to name a few.

Landry is a force to be reckoned with. With a smile that lights up a room and a personality to match, there is no telling what great things this young artist will achieve.
