Tanner is a Canadian actor and entertainment host best known for his work on the Pre-Show.
He began his career in radio, attracted to the entertainment industry by his passion for performance. During his time on the air, he wrote several sketches and commercials, and conducted hundreds of interviews with a variety of musicians, actors, and entertainment icons. Eventually, he took his show on the road, traveling across Canada to interview guests at some of the country’s largest Comic Cons and Entertainment Expos, and before long, he was joining them on stage as a host and panel moderator. In 2015, Tanner saw an opportunity to take his passion to the national level and auditioned for the “Casting Call,” where he was voted by Canadians as the new Pre-Show Host. Through the years spent hosting the show on the big screen, Tanner quickly became a household name by sharing his love of movies by visiting film sets, interviewing the stars on the red carpet, and taking the audience behind-the-scenes of their favorite films. Today, in addition to continuing to host panels at comic cons around North America from Calgary to Boston, creating content for his YouTube channel, popping up on various podcasts and news outlets, and staying active on social media, Tanner can be spotted in a variety of film and television productions as he continues to pursue his love of acting. He currently resides in Toronto with his wife Kelsey who also works in the film industry as an on-set teacher.
