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
