HEADLINER SAM BURNS has been performing comedy for what it feels like 19 years. He is a graduate of the Humber Comedy program and has been on CBC Connects with Ron James, NXNE festival, JFL42 and Just for Laughs Montreal. He is going to be the world biggest comedian according to a psychic from Barrie.
BEN BEAUCHEMIN moved to Toronto from Winnipeg six years ago to pursue stand-up comedy and acting. Ben’s natural stage presence and sharp joke writing ability got him instant recognition, landing him in the Cream Of Comedy showcase his first year in the city. Ben’s style is defined by his personal stories and observations punctuated with biting, rapid fire punchlines. As a comedian he has made his name primarily through a mix of high profile festival appearances such as Just For Laughs 42, Toronto Music Week, and NXNE, and independent tours, most recently “The Three Musketeers (Of Comedy)” which had sold out theatre shows in Montreal and Toronto. His comedy can also be heard playing on regular rotation on Sirius XM.
As an actor he has amassed an impressive amount of credits, appearing on stage and screen alongside James Franco, Renée Zellweger, and William Hurt. He just finished filming season 2 of Kim’s Convenience, currently the number one comedy in Canada, where he plays Gerald, a series regular.
KELSEY RYAN is a comedian from Ottawa, currently based out of Toronto. She is a member of the comedy collective Boys Club, a narrative driven alternative variety show, as well as Shweed, which creates cannabis-centric comedy content by and for lady stoners. She's performed in Toronto Sketchfest, Cracking Up The Capital Festival and most recently Woodstock Laughs Comedy Festival.
