Mark Critch interviews Erica Sigurdson The Halifax Comedy Festival
Sugar-Coated Razor Blade Leo Award Winner for Comedy Writing
Canadian Comedy Award Nominee
“Erica’s observational humour is fresh, insightful and hilarious.”
Erica’s first exposure to stand-up was watching Johnny Carson and while she didn’t decide right at the moment to be a comic, the seed had been planted in her seven-year old mind.
Vancouver–based Erica Sigurdson has been one of Canada’s familiar funny faces on television for almost a decade. In addition to her numerous television specials, Erica is an award–winning comedy writer for television and makes frequent appearances on the CBC Radio hit The Debaters.
As both an in–demand entertainer for stage and television, Erica is one of the top corporate entertainers in the country. Having previously worked in management and banking, Erica is well versed in knowing her audience and delivering top–notch entertainment that is appropriate in a business setting.
"Our event was absolutely wonderful. Erica was such a pleasure to work, hilarious and adapted her act as she went to suit our employees. She really worked hard to make our event a success and I would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to someone else". – Pacific Blue Cross
"Erica was an absolute pleasure to work with. She starred in numerous private corporate shows for our clients in theatres ranging from 500 to 2700 people throughout BC and Alberta. I have worked with many comedians over the years and Erica is one of the best – she had the audience laughing hysterically. And even though I saw her perform night after night, I was still laughing out loud at every show! Not only is she extremely funny both on and off the stage, she is very professional, responsive and a joy to tour and work with. Basically, she was outstanding in all aspects. I would not hesitate recommending Erica for your next corporate or club event. You won’t regret it" – Michele Schuldhaus LinkPR
