I Am Woman! Hear Me Laff! is once again coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 8 with a whole new lineup of female comedians in this insanely funny show.
Celebrate International Women's Day with all the crazy stuff that makes women special, as these comedians highlight the comical side of life in this wildly entertaining show.
Presented by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, I Am Woman! Hear Me Laff! is hosted by comedian Erica Sigurdson as she emcees the third annual "herlarious" evening at the Centre. This all female standup comedy show opens with the super funny Stephanie Michelle, features ditzy blonde Lark Miller and brings the hysterical wisecracking of headliner Jen Grant for an evening that will have you rolling in the aisles with laughter.
Nominated for Best Female Comedian at the Canadian Comedy Awards, Grant has her own halfhour TV special on CTV Comedy Now and has performed at virtually every comedy festival in the country. Grant has been on CBC's The Debaters, was a finalist at the Great Canadian Laugh Off and was the first Canadian to be a finalist at the Boston Comedy Competition. She has recently returned to Canada after three years in New York City where this Toronto comedian had the opportunity to play major comedy clubs with such legends as Robert Klein, the famous Jim Breuer and the great Louis CK.
Emceeing for the evening is Sigurdson, a dominating force in the Canadian comedy scene as well as an awardwinning writer. With multiple comedy festival credits to her name including Montreal's Just For Laughs, and the Winnipeg, Halifax, St. John's, Moncton, P.E.I., Sudbury and Vancouver comedy festivals, she is a comedic force. Also a regular contributor to CBC radio programs, including The Current and Definitely Not The Opera, Erica has been featured on the smashhit radio show The Debaters a record 20 times. A twotime Canadian Comedy Award nominee and a Leo Award winning comedy writer, Sigurdson has been performing standup across Canada for more than 10 years.
The show opens with the very funny Michelle, who started her comedic career in Vancouver in 2011. Placing second in "Funniest Comic with a Day Job" 2011, and third in "Funniest Female" 2011, she brings a fresh sassy edge to the show.
Then there is standup comedian Miller, who combines wit and innocence with her babydoll voice and femininity to spare, creating a style that is all her own. Perhaps the biggest highlight of Lark's standup career to date was performing on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Her love of comedy and writing took her to Los Angeles early in her career, where she was selected as a finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing and won a number of comedy contests, including the Shifting Baselines contest, which was judged by Larry David, Bill Mahr, Tom Arnold and Julia Louis Dreyfus.
Be warned, adult material and situations are abundant in this show.
