We once again partner up with one of the most prestigious comedy festivals in all of Canada, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival. Every show will feature a different headliner and we’ve been known to be the unofficial ‘clubhouse’ during the week, so you’ll never know who might come down to do a quick warm up set for their gala taping.
Sophie Buddle is based out of Vancouver and is one of the fastest rising stars in Canada. She has been featured at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal and well as their Toronto and Vancouver fests (JFL42, JFLNorthWest), she has her first album coming out this year and you may have heard her on CBC’s The Debaters. She has also recently discovered eyeshadow and is really overdoing it.
Courtney Gilmour – A killer combination of sharp writing and warm likability has made Courtney Gilmour one of Toronto’s fastest rising talents. She delivered a breakout performance at the 2017 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal by winning the Homegrown Comics Competition and filming a set for Kevin Hart’s new LOL Network. Courtney was one of the 42 at Toronto’s acclaimed JFL42 fest and is set to return to Just For Laughs in 2018 for a taping on The Comedy Network. Courtney has also opened for a number of prominent headlining acts including Todd Glass, Aparna Nancherla, Chris Gethard, and SNL’s Sasheer Zamata. She has previously made appearances at the All Jane Comedy Festival in Portland, NXNE, and SiriusXM’s Top Comic.
