In 2008, he was honoured with Canada’s prestigious Dave Broadfoot Comic Genius Award at the Canadian Comedy Awards, and was also awarded Best Male Stand-Up in 2009. He won a Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Comedy Show or Series for his work in the celebrated series The Newsroom on the CBC and PBS in the US, and received Gemini nominations for: Best Writing in Comedy or Variety Show or Series for his half-hour comedy special Whatever Happened to Jeremy Hotz? and for the CBC’s Oh Cana-duh. After headlining the Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland Comedy Festivals, Jeremy was awarded the Jury Prize for Best International Performer at the Sydney Comedy Festival.
On the small screen, Jeremy was a staff writer and performer on the critically acclaimed Jon Stewart Show. He has performed on Letterman, Leno and MTV, filmed his own half-hour special for Comedy Central plus a one-hour special for CTV, and released his hit DVD What a Miserable DVD This Is in 2010.
