Cathy Boyd – The stand up bug bit Cathy late in life but some might say that gives her an edge. After completing the writing course at Second City, Cathy tagged along with a friend to try her hand at stand up comedy and the rest as they say, is history. She quickly made a name for herself in and around Toronto, London and Ottawa, Ontario, Montreal, Quebec and Saint John, New Brunswick. She found herself headlining at the Maine Comedy Festival in September of 2017 and performed at the Portland, Maine Comedy Festival in July, 2018. Cathy was 1 of 5 finalists in the 5th Annual Absolute Comedy Prove You’re a Comic Competition. She is also the producer of C’est La Vie, a monthly comedy show here in Toronto and can be heard on Sirius XM Radio, Canada Laughs at Alt Dot Comedy. Cathy was invited to appear at The Best of Absolute Comedy in September , 2018, as part of Toronto’s annual comedy festival, JFL42. This year she will be making her first showcase appearance at Absolute Comedy, vying for a spot at one of Canada’s most prestigious annual comedy festivals. Cathy is the loving mother of four, who readily admits, three would have been good. She’d have been good with three.
