Tevya Heller was born funny (“A young Jim Carrey Meets Jackie Mason”—Village Voice, 2008). The ultimate multi-hyphenate; he is a writer, performer, stand-up comic and producer. Born in Montreal, Tevya is a character both behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
In 2007, Tevya founded his production company “GO TO HELLER TV”. Tevya created, produced and directed the series pilot for “PR PRINCESS”, and Executive Produced the short horror film “The Pregnancy” which explored the phenomena of Immaculate Conception and became a festival favorite. He also created and starred in the MTV bound pilot “SHADY” as well as the upcoming Los Angeles real estate series “REAL ESTATE STALKER” where he snoops through the homes of super-rich celebrities currently on the market for sale.
His recent accomplishments also include the series pilot for “WORLDS BIGGEST BUFFETS” and his hilarious 1- man comedy show “STRESSED IS DESSERTS SPELLED BACKWARDS” at the 2013 Toronto fringe theater festival.
Heller also co-created and hosts the ichannel youth series, “Oh My God!”, now in its third season, which explores faith through the eyes of youth — their families, school and social connections. From driving a horse and buggy with Old Order Mennonites to celebrating Buddha’s birthday (and everything in between) he takes us on a journey of discovering what it means to have faith.
A regular on the stand-up comedy circuits of Toronto and New York City, Heller resides in Toronto with his excitable beagle “Buddy” and is featured in the on-line web series “Dog Park Tales”
