This Week’s Comedians
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 currently tours Canada working for Yuk Yuk’s, the largest chain of comedy clubs in the country. A favourite of the festival circuit, he has performed at the “We’re Funny That Way” (Toronto), London, Halifax, Winnipeg, Glasgow, Sudbury, Out of Bounds (Austin, Texas), Laughing Devil (Atlanta, Georgia), North Carolina Comedy Arts, NXNE (Toronto) and JFL42 (Toronto) Comedy Festivals, and can be heard around the world on SiriusXM and CBC Radio’s The Debaters and LOL.
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. Ted’s hour-long Comedy Now! stand-up special on The Comedy Network (Canada) debuted in 2012. His web series The Giant Comes Out is currently being developed into a TV series. He is also a nationally syndicated radio columnist sharing his vet wisdom across Canada on CBC Radio, is the featured vet on the international magazine show Steven and Chris airing on CBC and runs a monthly phone-in veterinary advice show on Zoomer Radio.
Laurie Elliott is a stand-up comic, actor and television writer. She is a winner of the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award and is a four-time winner of Best Female Stand Up at The Canadian Comedy Awards. Her stand-up credits include the Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival (where she was chosen by the late, great Joan Rivers to perform on her final Gala show), the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Comedy Factory in Rotterdam, Raw Comedy Club in Stockholm, the SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto, and a gala run at the Cape Town International Comedy Festival in South Africa.
She has had recurring roles/appearances on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial, CBC’s The Red Green Show (she married Harold!), The Jon Dore Television Show, Match Game and The Debaters. Laurie’s voice can be heard on many animated series such as Total Drama Island, Scaredy Squirrel, and Camp Lakebottom. Laurie was also a regular on WWF star Chris Jericho’s award winning web series, But I’m Chris Jericho.
Writing credits include five seasons of the Total Drama Series, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Rocket Monkeys, Camp Lakebottom, Fugget About It, Showcase’s Almost Heroes, Disney’s My Babysitter’s a Vampire, Hulu’s original series Mother Up starring Eva Longoria. Laurie is currently co-show running a series for YTV called, The Three Amigonauts.
Laurie recently opened for the hilarious Arsenio Hall and he was a delight!
