Paul Hutcheson has been self-producing through his company Canuck Hutch Productions since 2003. The company’s first performances were made in-and for-the neighborhood of Parkdale, bringing art and community together. Through Canuck Hutch Productions, Paul has produced five solo monologue comedies. These shows have toured Canada and the United States playing to sold-out audiences and glowing reviews. The company also produces a comedy event called Hutch & Friends in Toronto and recurring cabaret shows (Pride Package, Queerly Canadian, Canuck Cabaret) in Toronto, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Puerto Vallarta and New York City. Co- produced by Horse Trade Theatre (NYC) Canuck Cabaret had been produced sixty times over five years with performers from Canada and the USA. Canuck Cabaret was a critic’s pick for three years in Time Out NY. Canuck Hutch productions has since formed a relationship with the legendary queer performing space The Duplex to produce the company’s solo and cabaret work.

"Hutcheson has crafted something so personable that he touches his audience without even trying."
"The script is sharp and observational, made all the more hilarious by Hutcheson’s brand of rubber-faced physical comedy."
