Performing at Just For Laughs

Hey everyone,

It’s been an amazing couple of weeks. Last I wrote in this space, I was heading to Montreal to perform on the Homegrown Comic Competition at Just For Laughs.

I was incredibly honoured just to be invited to the festival and I was excited to be sharing a stage with so many of my good friends. Then the entire experience played out more beautifully than I ever could have imagined. I won the competition, and was asked to tape my set for TV the following night. That is the first time that has happened in the history of the festival.

Just For Laughs!

It was only one year ago that I was in Montreal at the Just For Laughs festival as a member of the media.  I’m headed back to the festival this year, but this time, as a performer! That’s right, I’ll be performing at Just For Laughs in a month. Oh man, that felt so good to type.

This is the realization of a lifelong dream.  I grew up watching Just For Laughs on TV. I remember watching amazing comedians like Mike MacDonald, Wendy Liebman, and John Pinette and absolutely losing my shit. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to tell jokes just like them. And now I do. And I get to perform in Just For Laughs too? What a beautiful dream.

I’m performing with the best comedians from across Canada. Some of these comedians are my closest friends, so it makes the show even more special.  The show is hosted by the incredible Debra DiGiovanni, which makes it even more special!

My show is on July 24th. If you find yourself in Montreal, come watch. The link is below. Thanks to everyone who has ever supported me, especially my Mom. I don’t want to get too worked up over this show, as I hope it’s one milestone in a long, illustrious career. But you can never thank your Mama too much.
