“Kaido Strange brings a unique inter-sectional perspective to his writing and comedy, having lived a life that is transnational, transgender, and trans generational.”
“This allows him to root his work in the borderlands of storytelling, where the real meets the fantastic, and the narrators are as unreliable as the idea of any one truth.”
“Kaido’s storytelling overflows into multiple media, from fine arts to stand-up comedy to oral history. He reflects the personal and the imaginary, showcasing a vulnerability that belies its own strength.”
“With a life lived fully from moment to moment, Kaido’s work struggles and plays with the transitory nature of time, reality, and identity.”
LB / Storytelling Consultant
“Kaido’s comedy encompasses many worlds. There is Twin Peaks, there are cats, and there are also deeper topics — you will surely be surprised and entertained by humour both absurd and witty!”
Triin / Poet
"I had a chance to spend some time with Kaido on his trip to North America. Sharp, cynical, and completely approachable. Laugh out loud funny and snort-your-milk-through-your-nose-unexpected. Go see Kaido."

There isn't really a lot to know about me:
I love being creative, I went to OCAD U (I dropped out cos I hated art school) for printmaking (and I wanted to do illustration).
As a child, I was raised by my adoptive mother -- the TV. I love shows and movies, I talk about it a lot.
I wanna make dumb cartoons.
I (secretly) make dumb comics for my own amusement.
I have what I call 'softboi' aesthetics. I love pastel colours, flowers/plants/nature, cats/dogs, reading/libraries/books, 'softboi' music (No Rain by Blind Melon on repeat), sunlight and warmth.
I wanna be a gaffer in the movie industry. That sounds weird I know, but I wanna be the light in a movie star's life.
I am gay for Laura Dern.
I wanna be her light.
I wanna be her cat.
I wanna be. Perhaps, I'll let forever be.
I love pine cones. They're cool.
I enjoy photography, film or digital.
I know very random facts and I don't even know why.
I will literally cry if a stranger's dog/cat allows me to pet them.
I have a dog-like persona--birb! Look at that birb!!
Did you see that birb? So good.
I drink kefir everyday because I love culture.
Egon Schiele is my boyfriend.
But in the video game Animal Crossing, Punchy is my boyfriend.
Japanese pottery is so damn beautiful.
Your hair is very nice today.
I love Adam Ruins Everything and I am waiting for Adam to ruin me.
I don't think it's bad that I have a lot of jokes written about Jurassic Park.
I like kids but I'm not in love with them.
Hmm. I don't think that's a good idea.
I have tattoos but I don't count how many.
Down with the patriarchy.
Concrete is sooo a la mode right now. Like, you don't even know!
Couple 'tem and couple looks are the best.
My friend calls my house, "The Isolation Palace".
Dismantle and defund the police.
For a media CV, private events, etc., email me!
In my spare time I love writing slogans, fake advertisements for fake products, movie taglines, and silly scripts for comedy sketches.
I have never been to Disney World (or Universal Studios) and I don't feel like I'm missing out.
I don't like big crowds and loud noises.
I've seen a lot of the world though.
I love wasabi-flavoured KitKats.
I'm not weird. You're weird. Fuck you.
My ideal date is Laura Dern (again, see gay)
All I wanna do is have some fun. I gotta feeling, I'm not the only one?
I'm particular about how my coffee and tea are made. I know the secret art.
Black Lives Matter.
I love David Lynch.
I also really love classic Simpsons (seasons 1 through 8. 9/10 is pushing it.)
I don't cry in groups but I cry all the time when I'm on my own. I am the town crier!
Due to my private crying, I go scuba diving in my house.
I miss my husband terribly.
I will always bring the nice champagne, because I'm bougie as fuck.
I don't need Jeff Goldblum. I am my own Jeff Goldblum, a thank you.
I named my orchids after rappers.
The coolest thing I own is your soul.
Good vibes, only.
I love helping people. I also enjoy being everyone's cheerleader. You got this!!
I worked as a librarian and it's was the most satisfying work ever.
My favourite book is Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.
Manuscripts don't burn.
I love Billy Porter.
I grew up in Toronto, that's why my English is soooo good.
Humphrey Bogart is also my boyfriend. (Fun fact: we're the same height!)
I'm very affectionate.
I can cook but I don't want people to know.
I bet Elizabeth Warren has a plan for me.
I can go all day writing like this.
Thank you for reading all of it.
Have a nice day. 😊
