We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Ian Bagg

Friday May 6-Saturday May 7 @ Wiseguys Trolley Square



If comedian Ian Bagg looks like a hockey player, there’s a good reason: He grew up in British Columbia with aspirations of playing the sport professionally. However, a few brutal hockey camps knocked him toward comedy, though he still occasionally plays in month-long tournaments in Canada.

“I’m … a Vancouver Canucks fan through and through,” Bagg says. “My parents still send me, every Christmas, a boatload of stickers, keychains, the little bobbleheads and a Canucks calendar. Every year since I was kid my parents got that for me.”

A true offspring of the English-speaking world, Bagg’s father is Canadian, his mother is Australian and he currently lives in Los Angeles. Onstage, he talks a lot about current events. “I like to have a conversation with the audience, more than I do a monologue, so you don’t know where the show’s going to end up. Basically my show’s a road rally, and I have to hit certain points.”

Ian Bagg @ Wiseguys Comedy Café, 505 S. 600 East, Trolley Square, 801-532-5233, May 6-7, 7:30 & 10 p.m., $10. WiseguysComedy.com
