Renzel F. Dashington

Haitian by blood and Montrealer by heart, committed citizen, producer but above all, a comedian who believes he can say anything… if it’s said well!

His journey is atypical, to say the least. Spread over several continents, multiple careers and filled with extraordinary encounters and relationships with artists, businessmen and even heads of state. Renzel began his career as an event promoter in Montreal at the end of the 90s and since then a 20 year long career in show business as an artist manager, international tour director, producer, publisher. (Collaborations Corneille, Craig David, David Guetta etc….)

When it comes to comedy: “Honestly, I was out of reasons not to do it,”

5 years later, Renzel is here! With precise, sharp humor, both Deep & Ratchet. Through a pandemic, Renzel showcased his first One Man show. Yo, the baileys are f*cked up” to packed houses, largely through word of mouth,

Renzel with his soft amber, assured voice presents a type of comedy that is pleasant sweet insolent impertinence, his writing is precise and never borders on vulgarity…he’s funny AF

Last spring, Renzel was in Paris, where he gave 27 performances in 14 days in the biggest comedy clubs in the city. His humor makes you laugh and makes you think. He’s sensitive and corrosive.
