For more than nine years Melanie has been a fixture on the Vancouver comedy scene and in comedy venues across Canada. Whether in a club, festival or on television Melanie wows audiences with raw, honest insights on love, marriage, divorce, mental illness and trials of everyday life. She was featured on the critically acclaimed APTN show She Kills Me, performed at Am Woman! Hear Me Laff!, Victoria’s Funny Women’s Festival and Victoria International Buskers Festival.
In addition to her standup comedy, Melanie is dedicated to working with mental health organizations to help remove the stigma of mental health. In 2015 Melanie envisioned and produced MEDICATED: A crazy night of comedy in Victoria to raise funds for Victoria Cool Aid Society. Her new vision is to produce Heavy Mental Comedy, a fundraiser for the DTES. She has also been invited to perform for Public Health Association of BC, Pacific Blue Cross, Correctional Services and numerous medical health professional associations. Melanie has opened for some great comedians including Nikki Payne, Will C, Dave Coulier, Caroline Rhea, and Canadian legend Mike MacDonald.
Originally from Brockville, Ontario, Andrew Johnston has quickly made a name for himself as one of the most prolific gadabouts and hottest up-&/or-comers on the Toronto comedy scene. The winner of the Toronto regionals of “The Great Canadian Laugh-Off” in its inaugural year, Andrew was added to the Yuk Yuk’s roster, started touring and has spread both his signature style of comedy and murky-yet-puissant seed from burg to berg. A nominee for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award in 2006 and the Canadian Comedy Awards for Best Newcomer in 2009, he recently competed in The Homegrown Competition at Montreal’s venerable Just For Laughs festival.
You’ll recognize him from his many hours spent debasing Rihanna videos as one of the stars of MuchMusic’s top-rated Video On Trial; committing character assassination on unwitting college-aged kids on MuchMusic’s Love Court; as the severely underused street-reporter on Slice’s Three Takes; artfully discussing the 90’s on Entertainment Tonight Canada; serving reincarnated-Charles Nelson Reilly-realness on The Comedy Network’s Match Game; and as the (brunette) star and creative force behind instant online hit, The Sweater Girls.
An active member in Toronto’s GLBT community, he’s a frequent contributor to fab magazine and Xtra, and currently tours the University circuit with his stand-up-lecture series on anti-bullying. However, he’s best known to Toronto audiences as host and producer of the most consistently buzzed-about live comedy show, “Bitch Salad” - named “Best Queer Comedy Show” by Now Magazine and as seen profiled in The Advocate.
