Producer, Screenwriter: Ken Cuperus

Ken Cuperus is an award winning screenwriter and producer.

I first met Ken decades ago, when Ken approached me after one of my performances at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, asking if I’d help his comedy troupe.

A few years later Ken and his pals, known as the Brave New Weasels, were performing to sold out crowds.

We talk about the gutsy move to leave the comfort of being a big finish in a small pond, Winnipeg, to start with nothing more than one month’s rent in Toronto.

We also discuss working with Gene Simmons and Ken shares a hilarious story about his worst pitch meeting ever.
