In support of YWCA Saskatoon for International Women’s Day
The YWCA Saskatoon and the Broadway Theatre are excited to present an International Women’s Day comedy extravaganza featuring the women of My Jokes Are Up Here.
MY JOKES ARE UP HERE – with Jen Grant, Christina Walkinshaw and Erica Sigurdson. Three funny women with impressive resumes and three of Canada’s top comics.
Jen Grant has achieved virtually everything you can achieve in the world of stand-up comedy in Canada. She has performed at every major comedy festival in the country including the Just for Laughs Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, all aired on national television. She can also be heard on CBC‘s “The Debaters” and has her own TV special on The Comedy Network. Now living in Toronto, Jen lived in New York City from 2008-2011 and had the opportunity to play major comedy clubs with such legends as Jim Bruer, Robert Klein and Louis CK.
Christina Walkinshaw is a standup comic living in Toronto, she had a half hour comedy special on TV, and she was nominated for Best Female Stand Up Comic at the 2012 Canadian Comedy Awards.
Erica Sigurdson is best known for her wit on CBC Radio’s smash hit The Debaters. She is in high demand for radio, television and live appearances. In addition to her twenty-seven appearances on The Debaters, Erica has recorded five television specials in 2013 alone. Her comedy festival credits include Montreal Just for Laughs, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Comedy Festival, and many others. In 2007 Erica was awarded a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting, along with co-writer Peter Kelamis, for her writing on the 21st Annual Gemini Awards.
