This Week’s Comedians
Called ‘a revelation’ by UK’s The Independent and heralded as ‘fantastically intelligent’ by the Globe and Mail, Heidi is a two-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-Up in Canada and has combined her background in theatre with her unusually sardonic perception of everyday life to become a standout presence on the North American comedy scene. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her three televised galas as a part of the Montreal International Just for Laughs Festival, as well as numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, and on CTV’s Comedy Now!. In addition to screenwriting, story editing and series development for shows on HBO, FOX, PBS, FAMILY and YTV, Heidi won a Canadian Comedy Award for being part of the staff writing team on CBC’s hit series This Hour Has 22 Minutes and won a CBC deal to development her own original television series at the 2007 Just for Laughs “Just For Pitching” event.
Fast thinking and quick witted and gayer than a picnic basket bought with a three dollar bill, Richard Ryder takes the stage with a refreshing energy and “no holds barred” attitude that audiences welcome again and again. No topic is too taboo for this Toronto native whose comedy is fresh, fast, funny and a constant source of embarrassment to his family. Which is exactly how it should be.
Heard daily on 103.9 PROUD FM’s afternoon show, Riding Home with Richard Ryder and seen weekly across Canada on OUTtv, Richard’s Comedy Now on The Comedy Network is one of the most popularly replayed episodes to date. Richard’s brilliantly eclectic humour has also been featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, CBC Radio 1’s Accent On Toronto, Q107 where he won their Funniest Person With A Day Job, as well as on projects like Undercover Brother, The Scream Team, It Takes Two and Zoe Busiek Wild Card.
As if this weren’t enough, Richard can also be seen live, working the comedy circuit throughout Canada and the States. All kidding aside, experience him live. He’s a hoot!
With his quick wit, incisive observations, and bold stage presence Kyle can only be described as memorable. Whether he is tackling senseless or serious subject matter, the audience is met with consistent hilarity. Kyle believes anything can be funny when a strong conviction is delivered with a carefully designed combination of words.
In his short comedy career he has performed in festivals, arenas, and on CBC television. Kyle’s own embarrassment and personal struggles are always on the table making his work relatable to any audience.
Oh and he’s funny.
