She also recently started producing and hosting her own stand-up show called What Are You Doing After You Graduate?: A Comedy Show. which sold out its first two shows in Toronto and Kingston. Just recently, Jialu performed at the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival.

Honestly, she’s just trying her best.


Sam Sferazza

He co-hosts and produces a queer comedy showcase Working Women at the iconic Gladstone Hotel every first Tuesday: an inclusive and packed show of Toronto’s best queer and ally comedians. Sam is also a film producer by day at his own production company, Route Eleven. Recently Sam bought a pair of rose-coloured glasses and it did more for him emotionally than 2 years of therapy.


Jennie Frederick

Licensed Funeral Director, doting mother, some useless schmucks castrating and hysterical ex wife Hailing from Orillia, Ontario Jennie Steer-Welbourn brings her uniquely shitty attitude and penchant for bringing shame upon her family to the stage.  Performing at such venues as Comedy Bar, Social Capital Theatre, and the Underground.  Difficult to describe in a short paragraph, her essence has best been captured by the lyrics of Patrick Swayze’s ‘She’s Like the Wind’.


Hannah White

Hannah White may be new to the comedy scene, but she boasts over two decades of experience using humor as a coping mechanism. This Toronto native recently graduated from Second City’s stand up program and has gone on to perform at Comedy Bar among other, sadder, venues. In her spare time, you can find Hannah psychoanalyzing her peers or drafting her team for the RuPaul’s Drag Race fantasy league.


Evan Klim

Evan Klim is a weirdly authentic nut who likes to write and tell jokes.  He is a first year student at Humber College in the Comedy Writing and Performance program and is regularly out performing improv, sketch comedy and stand up in Toronto.  He won the “Make Me Laugh Live” competition in Janurary 2020 and he recently hosted his first comedy show at The Social Capital Theatre. When he is not on stage, he can most likely be found in his living room catching up on sleep.

Joe Kathrein

Tom McGowan

Tom just returned from 5 years in the Caribbean running a clinic, and is now back practicing medicine in Toronto.


Jack Shillinger
