Todd Shapiro

With 14 years as an on-air host, Todd Shapiro is best known for his time with Toronto's 102.1 the Edge as co-host on The Dean Blundell Show.

Ben Miner

Ben Miner

Ben Miner is a ridiculous human being. When he's not patrolling the city decked out in his replica Spider-Man costume saving pedestrians from menacing looking pigeons he can be found on-air or on a comedy club stage. He's been with Canada Laughs since day 1 and has hosted a variety of shows such as Chomping @ The Bit, The Vinyl Cut and Comic Stripped as well various segments and specials.  Ben's a stand-up comic first and foremost though. He's been performing since 1998 and in that time he's toured coast to coast in every club you can think of and he's even performed at the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival. Ben's also an award-winning gangsta-rap artist having performed everywhere from the Apollo Theatre in New York to Dubai and everywhere in between. Ok, part of this bio might not be true. Just saying. Alright, good chat.
