Jonathan Torrens


B: October 25, 1972 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Jonathan Torrens has worked as a performer, writer and producer. In 1989, he started a seven year run as one of the hosts of Street Cents, an award-winning consumer/sketch show for teenagers. It was there that he and Mike Clattenburg became friends and the character of J-Roc was first conceived. For five years he hosted the CBC Television show Jonovision, for which his sketch and character work earned him seven Gemini Award nominations, including Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Series and Best Comedy Series. He won the Best Supporting Actor award at the 1999 Atlantic Film Festival for his feature debut in Thom Fitzgerald’s Beefcake. He is pictured above after being honoured with a Canadian Screen Award for his work on the comedy series, Mr. D.
