In 2018 Reese performed the Rad Dad’s of Comedy to sold-out audiences at Off-Just For Laugh’s Zoofest and Yuk Yuk’s Saint John, Ottawa, and Comedy Bar in Toronto. In 2019 he was invited to back Zoofest to remount Rad Dad’s of Comedy.
Cathy Boyd is a Toronto-based, brutally honest stand-up comedian, mediocre tennis player and mother of four who readily admits, that three would have been good. She’d have been good with three.

She premiered her 7th solo show Baby Jeez and other Abreevs in Toronto and released a comedy album with the same name.
She spearheaded a grassroots movement to have stand-up comedy recognized as an art form and co-founded the Canadian Association of Stand-up, Sketch & Improv Comedians which lobbies for comedian’s rights.Her podcast Small Battalion of Soldiers delivers the latest disturbances in history, politics, news and comedy with a dash of Bill Gates.
