Debra diGiovanni, with Mark Bennett

Already at the third stand-up comedy night in this series, we are tickled to welcome some favourite funny people.

Comedian Debra DiGiovanni has been called the “Best Comedian to see after a Messy Break Up” and for three years running-she was named Canada’s favorite female comedian, as well as being named her hometown Toronto’s favorite comic for another three years.

Debra’s comedy has a sharp edge while maintaining a playful, happy air. Her humor and charm lies in her unflinching honesty and openness, and rapid-fire delivery.

Since she began in 2000, she’s made leaps and bounds in the comedy world- already with two Canadian stand up specials for CTV/Comedy network, she taped her first set on Comedy Central with her ‘Live at Gotham’ recorded in New York City. She’s taped comedy segments for ‘Gotham Live’ and ‘Stand Up in Stilettos’ in Los Angeles as well as ‘Stand and Deliver’ for NuvoTV. She was also a finalist on the 5th season of Last Comic Standing -making it to the Top 8 comedians. She was awarded a Gemini for best-televised comedy performance of 2010.

Debra’s a favorite at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, and attended in 2015 for the 10th time. She’s done comedy festivals around the world- including the Glasgow Comedy Fest in Scotland, as well as the Just For Laughs festival in Sydney Australia. You can often hear Debra on CBC radio’s ‘Debaters’ program, and the Much Music show ‘Video On Trial’. Debra debuted in the independent film Unlucky and her first stand up DVD for the Showtime Network- “Single, Awkward Female” – is now playing on Netflix.

Debra now makes her home in Los Angeles, but fortunately for us, continues to work and tour regularly in Canada. Tour dates at
