It has just been announced that American comedian, Michael Ian Black, will be joining the Headliner Series at the 8th Annual Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival. Michael Ian Black‘s career has brought him from television, to film, to writing (and now to Toronto), and he has over a million followers on Twitter — so you know he’s legit. Select acting credits of Black’s include his Comedy Central TV show, Michael and Michael Have Issues, and the satirical movie, Wet Hot American Summer. Black is also a bestselling authour with his recent memoir, You’re Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death and Other Humiliations, being put into development for a sitcom on a major network.

Check out Black’s brand of schadenfreude humour…
