He is the host of The Flicks With Dicks Podcast, and has performed on numerous festivals, and has toured across North America working with many notable comics. His dark sardonicism is equaled by his absurd silliness. Self proclaimed as the smartest idiot or the biggest dummy who knows big words.

Ben Pitfield is not not a good guy. He grew up in Toronto, hardened on the mean streets of Moore Park and the Bayview strip. His territory goes as far north as Eglinton and as far west as Laird. He has planted over 500,000 trees, and has maintained his sanity by making jokes as he did it. He is 23, which is quite old. For a dog.
Olivia Collict is a Toronto based stand-up comedian and writer. She is best described as, “if Regina George was a stoner”. You can find Olivia performing at venues throughout the city, and beyond (when she deigns to leave Toronto). And you can always find her every other Tuesday at Duffy’s Tavern where she is the producer and co-host of a bi-weekly comedy show called Banged-Up Comedy.
