Since beginning his career in stand-up comedy four years ago, Clifton Cremo has been entertaining Canadian audiences with his deft brand of storytelling and wry absurdism. Clifton's perspective on his Mi'kmaw upbringing and his unique outlook on First Nations issues brought him national attention by showing that no matter the divisiveness of an issue, humor can be a common ground.

Clifton was recently part of Rise Together with host Ron James - a Hurricane Fiona fundraiser that raised over $100,000 for the Cape Breton Red Cross. Clifton has also appeared at the Halifax Comedy Festival for CBC television in 2022 and 2023 in addition to being a part of their Best of the Fest tour in 2021. Clifton has also appeared on CBC radio's Laugh Out Loud. In March of this year, he recorded with Just For Laughs Originals as part of a compilation album scheduled to be released this Summer. Whether he's onstage at a comedy club, a local bar, or even a funeral (seriously), Clifton always manages to bring the laughs.
