Canadian-born comic actor Justin Landry burst onto the scene in 1999 when he was named Best New Comic at Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club, and soon afterwards he wrote, directed and starred in "The Justin Landry Show" an independent project that won him attention in Toronto and Los Angeles and became a college campus cult hit.
Growing up the son of (mostly intentionally) funny parents and a funny, dramatic sister (ditto), and involved in theatre and performance in his small-town community of Oshawa, Ontario, Landry found immediate success as a professional actor, appearing in a number of national television commercials airing both in Canada and the United States. He also landed a hosting job on the nationally-televised quiz show "SmartAsk!" which aired on the CBC and landed a deal with MTV in Los Angeles. In recent years, Landry has won over numerous fans by starring in a number of award-winning and internationally-recognized commercials. He earned a "Best Actor in a Commercial" award in 2008 for his work in a campaign for Diet 7Up. He regularly lends his voice to numerous TV and radio commercials, as well as a number of animated series. "Cancel Christmas" marks Landry's first leading role in a film and he was thrilled to work with Judd Nelson and such a talented cast of young and veteran performers.
Landry currently lives in Toronto with his wife and daughter.
