About the comedians:
ERICA SIGURDSON a Vancouver-based comedian, 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 with her take on the world around her. She has been featured over to 50 times on the hit show The Debaters 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 also an advocate for Type 1 diabetes awareness, having lived with Type 1 since the age of 10.
DEREK SEGUIN is one of the most sought after stand-up comedians appearing at the Just For Laughs festival an impressive 11 times and on The Debaters on CBC Radio over forty times. This winner of Sirius XM’s Canada’s Top Comic competition in 2015, has appeared at all major festivals across our nation and has been described by GQ Magazine’s Comedy Editor as “A true star and Montreal’s pride and joy”. The Montreal Gazette raved “... What made it great, however, was not the boldness of his material but that he described it all in such childlike wonder. Brilliant.” Seguin’s latest comedy album, PanDerek -1st Wave, has been nominated for a Juno Award.
