Erica Sigurdson

ERICA SIGURDSON has charmed and joked her way into the top of the Canadian comedy world. A contributor—both in writing and performing—to CBC Radio’s The Debaters, The Current, and Definitely Not The Opera, Sigurdson is fun, quirky, and right on point. On stage, she shows us how to see—and embrace—the humour in everyday life.

Erica Sigurdson has performed at every major comedy festival in Canada. She's been nominated for a Canadian Comedy award, twice! If that wasn't enough, she was part of a select group of comedians chosen by CBC to travel to Afghanistan to shoot the television special, Stand Up In Kandahar. Sigurdson has also written for numerous television and radio shows, including The 21st Annual Gemini Awards, for which she won a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting.
