As the Host of InnerSPACE, AJAY FRY is no stranger to SPACE or the airwaves. Born in Toronto, Ajay attributes his bizarre and creative sense of humour to growing up in Ottawa. His career in television began at an early age with roles on LASSIE, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK and BIG WOLF ON CAMPUS. He also regularly lent his young voice to cartoons such as ARTHUR, LITTLE LULU and CAILLOU.
As a teenager, Ajay studied and performed improvisational comedy at Ottawa’s popular comedy club The iNSTiTUTiON under owner and Second City alumnus Ken Godmere. Shortly after turning 18, Ajay traveled to Beijing, China where he voiced a series of educational videos which were distributed across the country.
In 2003 Ajay came to Toronto to study comedy and improv. He completed the conservatory program at The Second City and the Humber College Comedy program where he became a nominee for the prestigious Phil Hartman Award.
After graduating, Ajay joined YTV as host of CRUNCH, their popular Saturday morning programming block. Ajay delighted YTV audiences for two years before joining SPACE in 2008 as host of the weekly genre entertainment show, THE CIRCUIT.
In fall 2009, Ajay joined forces with Teddy Wilson to co-host SPACE’s flagship daily genre entertainment show, InnerSPACE. As the voice of SPACE, each episode of InnerSPACE is locked and loaded to deliver an action-packed half-hour. Genre experts Ajay, Teddy and Cynthia Loyst go beyond the studio and into the field giving viewers front-row access to big buzz events, unparalleled behind the scenes access and coveted interviews with genre's biggest stars.
When not hosting INNERSPACE, Ajay is demolishing fellow gamers in online computer games like Left 4 Dead 2, StarCraft 2 and TeamFortress 2, designing websites or kicking around the local Toronto comedy scene.
