Bryan O'Gorman is a professional weirdo who has headlined comedy shows in dozens of countries including England, Australia, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, Croatia, Serbia, Czech Republic and the USA to name nine. This year he plans on playing in every country on earth, plus the moon (if the spaceship he's building works).This past January, Bryan's second album opened at number one on iTunes comedy charts and remained there for several hours. A live performer since childhood, this joke of a man honed his stand up skills in the legendary Toronto comedy scene and has refined them on stages throughout the galaxy. Catch him now before he dies in a feeble attempt to make it to the moon in a homemade rocket. Of his many credits, a few include being featured on MTV, Much Music, The Comedy Network, Sirius-XM Radio, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival,The Melbourne Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs, National Lampoon Radio, the Montreaux comedy festival and the CBC.

'Insightful comedy that is actually funny!' - Georgia Straight
A gregarious and dynamic comedian with a knack for telling it like it is, Rob has become one of the brightest voices to hit the Canadian comedy scene.
With unmistakeable charm, wit and trade-mark act-outs, Rob is a must see performance.
Rob has also appeared as a regular on the MTV series Punk'd and recently had his one hour “Comedy Now” special air on the Comedy Channel. In 2013 Rob performed at all 3 Major Canadian TV Comedy Festivals - Just For Laughs Montreal, Ha! Halifax Comedy Fest and The Winnipeg Comedy Festival!
Rob is now one of the top Corporate Clean Comedians on our Roster as well, having done the prestigious Investor's Group Comedy Tour of Ontario in 2013 and slated for the Maritime and Mid-West Canada versions for 2014. Only the funniest clean comedians are chosen for these tours, so very high praise indeed!
Rob is a "military brat"; he was born on a base in Halifax and moved with his military father to Edmonton. He has played various military bases throughout Canada and has been invovled with several Military Comedy Benefits.
Martha Chaves is a veteran of multiple Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and of all the other major comedy festivals in Canada, like the Winnipeg, Halifax, Edmonton, and Vancouver Comedy Festivals. She has also performed in Boston and New York Comedy Festivals, in Toronto’s SheDot Festival and in Colombia’s Festival Del Humour. Martha’s infectious, candid style, and her natural ability to relate to any audience has made her a very popular headliner comedian at clubs, colleges, festivals, fundraisers, and corporate functions. Her versatility has granted her to do shows all over the world and to entertain a wide range of audiences. For example, she performed for the Canadian troops in Alert, Egypt, Israel, and Afghanistan and also for a delegation of women, led by Nobel Peace Prize recipients, in Mexico and Central America. In 2015, she performed at the opening ceremonies of the Toronto Pan Am Games, at the Rogers Centre in front of 45.000 people and in 2016 she hosted the ACTRA awards. Her Stand-Up TV credits include her two national comedy specials: COMICS! On the CBC, and There’s Something about Martha on CTV and The COMEDY NETWORK; plus her multiple TV appearances in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival and many others. You often hear Martha on Laugh Out Loud on CBC Radio and on The Debaters, also on CBC radio.In her film and TV career she has worked with Whoopi Goldberg (Strong Medicine), Chris Rock, (Down To Earth) and even had scenes with Denzel Washington in “John Q”. Her One-Woman show, “In Times of Trouble”, was the opening show of Aluna Theatre’s CAMINOS Festival in November 2015. Martha performs mostly in English, but also in Spanish, French, and Italian.
Award-winning comedian Danish Anwar is probably the only Russian-born Indo-Bengali-Canadian standup comic you’ll see this year. His clever blend of politics & nerd culture landed him multiple appearances on national TV & radio, such as CBC comedy specials “Fish Out Of Water” and “Truth Bomb” and the hugely popular CBC Radio show The Debaters, along with comedy festivals such as Just For Laughs, JFL42 and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. He had a feature role in the acclaimed TVO documentary “Stand Up Toronto”, and has opened for renowned comedians like Gina Yashere, Aparna Nancherla & DeAnne Smith.
A successful producer with a reputation for trendsetting ideas and sold out shows, he’s also the founder of the comedy label Toronto Comedy All Stars and creator of the wildly popular battle show Your Hood’s A Joke, which has become a popular recurring show at several comedy festivals.
Danny Polishchuk is Toronto-based writer, actor, comedian, filmmaker and social media influencer who has appeared on stages and screens across North America.
