To The Moon and Back: Lars Callieou

Today’s love story belongs to Lars Callieou, a Canadian comedian who has given the gift of laughter to audiences all over the world, including six military tours. For Lars, feeling at home on the road was very normal, as his parents were travelling musicians. When following in their footsteps didn’t quite pan out, he found solace and purpose in standup comedy.

His love of comedy has taken him across Canada and the US in his beloved 2009 Volkswagen Jetta, which he calls Silver. Lars has travelled so much that he’s travelled the exact distance to the moon and back (768,00km)…and then some. Currently, he has logged 818,000km.

Lars has an impressive comedy career that spans 20 years, and he’s worked with such luminaries as Joan Rivers, Jeff Foxworthy, and Bob Sagot. His fuel is passion, generosity, and the pure love of performance. 

Lars Callieou has appeared at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montréal and has a 1-Hour Comedy Special currently airing on The Comedy Network. He’s been overseas to entertain the troops 5 times and is a 2-Time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee. He can be heard on CBC’s Laugh Out Loud, CBC’s The Debaters and on Sirius/XM. He’s performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the last 8 years and has also appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, the Boston Comedy Festival, the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and the Halifax Comedy Festival.
