Rush Kazi

Rush, Kazi

Rush Kazi is a Montreal-born, Toronto-based stand-up, sketch, and musical comedian.
Rush’s comedy style can be described as confessional, raw, and acerbic story-telling. Drawing on life experiences as unique as jail time and as mundane as getting a wax, Rush’s refreshing and hilarious delivery and unique point of view has not found its equal in her contemporaries. Rush’s debut comedy album, About Time, was declared one of the Top 10 Canadian Comedy Albums of 2022 by Glenn Sumi (Now Magazine, So Sumi) and saw Rush proclaimed as a “Queer first-generation Canadian Disruptor” and “a rare talent” by Parton and Pearl, while CBC Arts called Rush “your new favourite non-binary, pansexual, South Asian, Muslim comedian” (even if you don't know any others)!Second City trained, Rush has been featured in Just For Laughs Toronto/JFL42, Toronto Fringe Festival, and both Toronto and Montreal SketchFests, just to name a few. Rush produces the always sold-out hit shows Asian Comedy All-Stars, MuJew (A Muslim and Jewish comedy showcase), Gaysian Comedy All-Stars (the world’s FIRST all-Queer, all-Asian comedy showcase), and has been producing shows in the Toronto comedy landscape since 2012.Rush's album released the same day as Rush's comedy special on OutTV and can be streamed all over the world using Amazon Prime.
