With over thirty appearances on CBC Radio’s smash-hit The Debaters, her own half hour comedy special on The Comedy Network and an internationally televised performance for Just For Laughs, Erica Sigurdson has a resume that is as impressive as it is long.
Within two years of stepping on stage for the first time, Erica was invited to perform at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and caught the eye of CBC producers who cast her for televised appearances the next year at both the Ha!ifax Comedy Festival and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival respectively. Since then she has been invited to perform at both these festivals numerous times as well as being one of five Canadian comedians chosen to perform in Kandahar Afghanistan for a CBC television special StandUp in Kandahar. In 2014, her performance on Just For Laughs All Access was televised internationally to rave reviews.
Erica grew up loving Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett and adored Fawlty Towers. She had a speech impediment until the age of eight, an issue with bed-wetting until it got real awkward and was diagnosed with Type1 diabetes on Valentines Day when she was ten. She now wears an insulin pump, can properly say almost all her words and is once again allowed juice past 11pm.
In addition to entertaining at comedy festivals and clubs across Canada, Erica is also an in demand corporate entertainer for companies from coast to coast.See more…
