FEATURING:

Kerby Darius was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He first excelled academically in school and had aspirations of becoming the first black president but once Barrack Obama beat him to it, Kerby gave up on any hopes of contributing positively to society and decided to pursue a career in comedy instead. (Thanks Obama). Kerby began his stand up career in Toronto and quickly became known for his smart, off balanced approach to comedy and rapidly gained the respect of the other comics in the city. He now lives in New Jersey and performs all over the tri state area.

A killer combination of sharp writing and warm likability has made Courtney Gilmour one of Toronto's most sought after comedy talents. As a multiple limb amputee, Courtney manages to share her quips and musings about daily struggles with charming presence and extreme relatability. 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 the Winnipeg and Halifax comedy festivals, as well as a triumphant return to Just for Laughs in Montreal for a taping on The Comedy Network. Continuing the strong momentum, Courtney was one of the 42 acts at Toronto's JFL42 festivals two years in a row with her own run of headlining shows. Courtney has been featured in FASHION and Flare magazine and has also made appearances on The Beaverton and CBC's The Debaters. She co-produces the hit monthly show So Fresh N' So Clean at Comedy Bar, Toronto's only clean comedy show and has also opened for a number of international headlining acts. You can catch Courtney on SiriusXM Canada Laughs, CBC radio and TV, The Comedy Network or better yet catch her live performing with Yuk Yuk's all over Canada!
