Michael Lifshitz - 2019 Mike MacDonald Memorial Comedy Competition Winner - Michael stepped on a comedy stage for the first time, 10 years ago. What started as a lost bet over a souvlaki dinner grew as Michael added speaking and writing to not only enlighten people as to what people with disabilities could accomplish, but to also inspire others to live life to the fullest…regardless of their limitations…because after all, as Michael says, “We all face challenges…mine just get me better parking spots!”. While there is still plenty of work to do, 10 years seems like a milestone to celebrate, so Michael is celebrating the only way he knows how…with comedy.


 Jennifer Whiteford is an Ottawa comic who has performed at clubs and indie nights around Ontario. She was a finalist in the Mike MacDonald Summer Comedy Competition at YukYuks in 2018. She is also the co-founder of Comedy Beat, a quarterly comedy showcase with an emphasis on under-represented performers. Jennifer facilitated the Improv Embassy's Introduction to Stand Up class, and can also be heard on the podcasts Scene Partners and Odd Spots.
