Comedian Debra DiGiovanni is a 4 time Canadian Comedy Award winner and has been called the “Best Comedian to see after a Messy Break Up.” She was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, star of Match Game on The Comedy Network, and her comedy special “Single Awkward Female” can be seen on Netflix in the US. Debra is regular at all the comedy festivals, and clubs across the country. Her comedy has a sharp edge while maintaining a playful, happy air, and her charm lies in her unflinching honesty, and rapid-fire delivery. Debra recently shot her second comedy special which will be premiering in 2018 on CraveTV.

Janice Bannister is a comedy favourite with her wild and whacky style and her quirky honesty about the world around her. A former Psychiatric Nurse, Janice has been on the comedy scene for 15+ years. She likes to combine her “scientific nerd side” with her “giving the bird side”. Her comedy and customized Laughter Wellness performances have been featured in the Vancouver Sun Business section, W Network, CTV, and CBC. She has performed for Vancouver International Comedy Festival, Vancouver Fringe Fest, and numerous club dates across Canada, US and recently in Costa Rica.

Funny woman Nic Enright-Morin, is not only a renowned stand-up comedian and founding member of the Vancouver comedy production house and Amusings Comedy, but regularly cracks up audiences during her tours across the province and within the UK.

Alison is a comic and storyteller who is proud to hail from bonny Scotland. Her performances are infused with her warm Scottish brogue and humour and she can be found on stages all over the Lower Mainland, where audiences are in stitches with her unique take on the world. She is part of a comedy trio called Potatoes, Pies and Haggis who are taking their comedy show to the Edinburgh Fringe this year and she has also written and performed in sketches with the Amusings Comedy group.

In 2016 Alison made it to the semi-finals of the hugely popular Yuk off competition, then in 2017 she won first place in BC’s Funniest Female competition.
