What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than with the funniest female comics around! A beloved annual tradition, I Am Woman, Hear Me Laff brings a selection of professional stand-up comedians together for a night of female empowerment guaranteed to deliver side-splitting, tear-inducing laughter. Get the girls together for this annual ritual, and revel in the joys of being a woman!
Headlining our 17th annual I Am Woman, Hear Me Laff is Erica Sigurdson. Vancouver based Erica Sigurdson has been delighting audiences across Canada and beyond for close to two decades. Having been described as a ‘sugar-coated razor blade’ she is equal parts charming and sardonic in her take on the world around her. She has been featured close to 60 times on the hit show The Debaters heard on CBC Radio, performed at every major comedy festival in Canada as well as performed in Singapore, The Philippines, Thailand, Afghanistan and Iceland. She is an advocate for Type 1 diabetes awareness, having lived with Type 1 since childhood.
Emcee Katie-Ellen Humphries is a stand-up comedian, writer and sketch performer who currently splits her time between Vancouver and New York. Whether sharing comedic confessions or disappearing into uproarious and dramatic characters, Katie-Ellen’s remarkable point-of-view resonates on the stage, page and screen. Her sensibility (that falls somewhere between the library and the locker-room) and sharp wit make her a favourite of audiences of all kinds. A founding member of The Lady Show and veteran of award-winning comedy cabaret Atomic Vaudeville, Katie-Ellen is a regular on CBC Radio’s The Debaters where she has worked as a writer and Associate Producer. Katie-Ellen is also a 3-time Canadian National Champion for the 5 Kilometer Open Water Swim. That’s unrelated to comedy, but it explains the shoulders.
