Simon Rackoff

Simon Rakoff has been performing stand-up since 1978. Considered one of the quickest minds on the scene, Simon is a veteran who performs with the enthusiasm of a newcomer. He is widely regarded as one of comedy’s top acts and has headlined shows from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland. His act has also taken him to the United States and England.

Simon’s act is carefully crafted and full of thought-provoking, hilarious routines. Among other topics, it covers religion, relationships, stupidity and man in the modern world. All this is combined with ad-libbing abilities second to none

Fiona O'Brien

After Emigrating from Ireland to Canada in 2012 Fiona began on a quest to stamp out the racism that the Irish face….One Lucky Charm at a time.

Fiona knows the Irish are not a race, but she cannot pronounce Xenophobia. A graduate of the Second City Stand up Course, Fiona quickly established herself by winning over audiences: semi finalist in the Absolute Comedy “Prove You’re a Comic” competition, a semi finalist in the Toronto Comedy Brawl, a finalist in The ‘Rising Stars Competition’ at The Brantford Comedy Festival, and two time Tournament Champion at Flat Tire Comedy , and now banned from entering this year due to complaints by other jealous comics. Recently appeared at the She Dot festival.

Fiona has charmed and opened for K Trevor Wilson (Letterkenny, JFL, Jeff Ross Roast Battle). After providing the world with three future tax payers ( all born by C Sections, just saying), Fiona has decided to dedicate her life to making sexually frustrated, disillusioned and bored people laugh with her no restraint, provocative, humour.

Joze Piranian

Joze Piranian is a lifelong stutterer on the quest to confront his fears one stage at a time, through public speaking & stand-up comedy. ... Joze holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Psychology from McGill University and a Master of International Business from Queen's University.
