Amethyst Barron is a nervous wreck who sometimes thinks of something funny. Their unique and witty one-liners tackle big topics like trauma, family, queerness and feminism with a light and calming delivery.
Courtney Gilmour is one of Toronto’s most unique voices and sought after comedy talents, named by NOW Magazine as “one of the top 10 stage artists to watch”. She delivered a breakout performance at the 2017 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal by winning the Homegrown Comics Competition and filming a set for Kevin Hart’s LOL Network. Courtney’s victory at the 2017 Just For Laughs Homegrown was the first by a female comic in the 19 year history of the event. In 2018 she topped it with televised performances at CBC’s Winnipeg and Halifax comedy festivals, as well as a triumphant return to Montreal to tape a set for The Comedy Network at Just for Laughs. She has made appearances on the CW Network, CBC’s Debaters, and can be seen touring with Yuk Yuk’s comedy clubs across Canada.
Good news! We are happy to announce that ASL interpretation will be available at this event.

If you are planning a trip to The Theatre Centre and have any questions about accessibility or would like to make any special arrangements, please call our box office at 416.538.0988.
