AGT | Conan | Just For Laughs


Hard of hearing since birth, D.J. Demers has never let his disability get in the way of his dreams.  Inspired by comedians like Wendy Liebman and Jim Carrey, his clever, witty style of comedy will surprise you with lots of twists and turns.  His stand up profiles his perspective of what it’s like to be hard of hearing and the fact that he doesn’t see things any differently than most of us.  It’s a refreshing and inspiring view.  He recently moved to the United States from Toronto, Canada and has already appeared on season 11 of America’s Got Talent. He has been on Conan and was the winner of the 2014 Homegrown Comics Competition at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, was the winner of the 2013 Toronto Comedy Brawl, was a finalist in NBC’s Stand-up for Diversity, and won ‘Best Breakout Artist’ at the 2015 Canadian Comedy Awards.  And yes, he also wears hearing aids. @DJDemers
