Janice Israeloff- Janice regularly performs at Comedy Bar, Yuk Yuks, Levity, Absolute Comedy, The Lab, Royal Comedy Theatre, Backroom, Levity and is a staple in the Toronto comedy scene performing in bars, restaurants local clubs and at corporate events.

Jason Luu- Jason is a up-and-coming stand up comic. He likes to tell jokes and sometimes people laugh. He produces and hosts Bubble Tea Comedy, a monthly stand up comedy show in Markham. Jason gets his inspiration from personal experiences. During the day he’s a 9-5er and at night he’s a joker at open mic’s around Toronto. He’s entertaining, self-deprecating and overall just funny to look at.

Andrea Holz- Andrea is a 4-time award winning Screenwriter. Her writing and producing has been featured in Film Festivals all over North America. Andrea is also one half of the Cult Classic Comedy Team. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @Andrea_Holz for future show dates.

Dan Rosen- Dan is a Toronto-based comedian and filmmaker. He hosts Big Dumb Show on the first Saturday of every month at Comedy Bar West and World Class Comedy on the last Thursday of every month at MB The Place To Be in North York. He toured his critically-acclaimed one man show Game of Crohn's to Fringe festivals across Canada. He has been featured on Tinder Tales and at the Toronto Storytelling Festival. His first film, Joe & Mary's Kid, is available on Amazon Prime in the US and the UK.


Marc Trinidad- Marc Trinidad may have been born and raised on the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, but the Caribbean island paradise could not contain his talent and aspirations for long. After being exposed to theatre and sketch comedy on his native island, a craving for international exposure began. Marc packed his bags and headed to the great white north to sharpen his stand up comedy sabre.

In the twenty years since making that jump, he's worked the stage with some of the best in the business, the legendary Kenny Robinson, social media sensation Majah Hype, The Daily Show's Gina Yashere, living legend Dave Chappelle and the unconquerable Chris Rock are names that will ring a bell. He's created history as the first Canadian to have appeared on BET ComicView, was featured on the Comedy Network, Now Magazine rated him as 'One to watch', voted Best Comic 'Soul'd Out Comedy Festival, winner of the Brantford Comedy Festival 2019 and is in rotation at Sirius XM. Not satisfied with wowing crowds across Canada, he's toured the Netherlands, the UK, the US and the Caribbean. Armed with a versatile and wide ranging repertoire, new fans are routinely shocked by his unique island man swagger with razor sharp Canadian wit and timing.

Whether it's a corporate event that requires a host with polished professional subtle material, or a bar/club environment that needs to be more high energy and shocking, he lives his mantra, 'Honesty in comedy.'

... and your host for the evening, Kelly Zemnickis - Kelly got her start in comedy at 17, cleaning toilets at a local Toronto comedy club. She eventually worked her way up to running the technical side of things, but it was only at the age of 37 when she took the mic for the very first time. In the 6 years since her first set, Kelly has shared the stage with comedians such as Kevin Farley and has been featured at the Burbank Comedy Festival (2020- best of the fest selection), Boston Comedy Festival and L.A's Laugh Riot Grrl Festival. She has also graced the stages of The Comedy Nest (Montreal), Absolute Comedy (Toronto/Ottawa/Kingston), Broadway Comedy Club (NYC), West Side Comedy Club (NYC), The Market Lounge & Comedy Club (Valparaiso, Indiana) and Annoyance Theatre (Chicago).
