Gilson is a St. Lucian born comedian who found his calling while studying Architectural Design at a Toronto community college. Upon catching word of the live comedy scene in his new home, he took to the stage. The rest is history.

Although he is quick to remind folks that he is nowhere near as funny as the storytellers from his Caribbean roots, Gilson self-described “pleasant and often naive comedy routine” has won awards at the Laugh Across America Competition, the Las Vegas Comedy Competition, and a Canadian Comedy Award.

A humble man at heart, Gilson has never competed for praise or to be the “funniest comedian” but to be able to travel around the world, experience new cultures, and share his love of storytelling.

Gilson has also appeared as an MTV host/personality/writer, on HBO, CBC, the Comedy Network, Comedy Central and many more.
