Byron Bertram

Born and Raised in Vancouver to an artistic background. His father a musician, his Mother a artist, his Grandfather was the famous late painter and "Order of Canada" recipient Toni Onley, and his Great Grandfather Jim Onley, was a well known stage actor in the UK in the 30's and 40's before emigrating the family to Canada in 1948.

An only child with a undying need to be the center of attention and in the limelight. He started his a career as a street entertainer at the age of 16, which was inspired after learning how to juggle in a summer school for the performing arts program. His well received comedy, escape, juggling show under his stage name "Byron from England" was a massive success at festivals, and fairs in over a dozen countries.

In 2002 he became a full time stand up comedian performing with a natural talent for voices, accents, and impressions which made him a favorite in his home country of Canada, as well as receiving critical accolades abroad in The US, UK, and Australia. Melbourne Herald Sun said "He had the crowd cheering and this reviewer wanting more" 4 Stars.

On television you may have seen him as a guard on Alcatraz to the notoriously funny whiny husband "Pam can you call my mom?" on the NyQuil Commercial.
