The Comedians

Ted Morris

Ted Morris always looks like he's having the most fun in the room when he's on stage. His intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile lets us all know that our slightly warped thoughts are just fine. 

He’s equal parts boy-next-door and boy-your-mother-warned-you-about with just enough boy-you-want-to-hang-out-with-at-the-party-to-laugh-at-everyone-else-with (and know you’re safe!) to keep things interesting.

Born in Ottawa and now making his home in Toronto, Ted discovered his love of stand-up while getting his degree in veterinary medicine. While he still spends some time working as small animal vet, his comedy career is taking off and he has found that it's much more gratifying to "kill" on stage.

He's been called "fresh faced and hilarious" and "a real gem" by Now Magazine, and slightly ruder things by strangers in the street.

Ted is a writer, producer and all around super guy. He has performed at the "We're Funny That Way", London and Halifax Comedy Festivals, and can be heard around the world on SiriusXM Radio.

His TV appearances include two stand-up specials for Pridevision TV (as both a performer and producer), The Toronto Show, The Comedy Network's "Canadian Comedy Shorts", MuchMoreMusic's Heat Meter, The Smart Woman's Survival Guide and The Halifax Comedy Festival on CBC.

His hour-long Comedy Now! stand-up special on The Comedy Network debuted in 2012.

 

Erica Sigurdson

With over thirty appearances on CBC Radio’s smash-hit The Debaters, her own half hour comedy special on The Comedy Network and an internationally televised performance for Just For Laughs, Erica Sigurdson has a resume that is as impressive as it is long.

Within two years of stepping on stage for the first time, Erica was invited to perform at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and caught the eye of CBC producers who cast her for televised appearances the next year at both the Halifax Comedy Festival and the Winnipeg comedy festival respectively.  Since then she has been invited to perform at both these festivals numerous times as well as being one of five Canadian comedians chosen to perform in Kandahar Afghanistan for a CBC television special StandUp in Kandahar.

When invited to perform for the first time at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laugh’s in 2005, it was Erica’s comedy writing that caught the attention of the head of CTV’s comedy division and she landed her first ever gig writing for a television pilot.  Since then, Erica has written on numerous television projects, including the 21st Annual Gemini Awards, for which she and co-writer Peter Kelamis were awarded a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting in a Comedy, Musical or Variety Program. Most recently she was a contributing writer for season 1 of MrD, which airs on CBC Television.

In addition to performing coast to coast in comedy festivals, theatres and clubs, Erica has become a highly sought after performer for corporate events and fundraisers. Having worked in restaurant management and banking for over 15 years, Erica draws on her life experiences, the workplace, relationships and a few other random thoughts that pop in her head  and keeps corporate audiences rolling with laughter without crossing a line.

Born in Goderich Ontario and raised in British Columbia, Erica’s childhood was spent going to church or hanging out at the racetrack helping her father with their standard-bred racehorses. A kid with a speech impediment until 8 (it still pops up wandomly) and a chronic bed wetter until much later,  it’s no wonder Erica found standup comedy was really the career for which she was best suited. 

She was tempted to write a clever pun about bedwetting and dry humour, but thankfully, she resisted.  

 

Mike Delamont

With more than 40,000 tickets sold last year, Mike Delamont is one of the fastest rising comedians in the country. A three time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee, his popular one-man shows have sold out major theatres across the continent and to overwhelming critical acclaim. He has appeared on CBC's Laugh Out Loud and The Debaters, SiriusXM's Top Comic, The Halifax Comedy Festival, and Just For Laughs.
