Speaker: Erica Sigurdson – Canadian comedy sensation
Best known for her quick wit on CBC Radio’s smash hit The Debaters, Erica Sigurdson is one of Canada’s most beloved comedians. She’s an award-winning comedy writer, who has written for such hit shows as CBC’s Mr. D and CTV’s Corner Gas Animated. Fun, quirky, and right-on-point, Sigurdson shows audiences how to see ― and embrace ― the humour in everyday life. Sigurdson has performed in Iceland, Singapore, Thailand, England, the Philippines, and from coast to coast in Canada, giving her a worldwide following. She was also part of a select group of comedians chosen by CBC to travel to Afghanistan to shoot the television special, Stand Up In Kandahar. Twice nominated for a Canadian Comedy award, Sigurdson won a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting for co-writing the 2006 Gemini Awards. Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 10, Sigurdson is a vocal advocate for T1 Diabetes awareness, as well as a passionate speaker on the topic of humour and its role in living well with a chronic illness.
