MCed by:

- Ryan Zeitz - aka The RyGuy. Ryan is a stand-up comedian and mental health peer support worker. He also teaches a 'Stand-Up Comedy For Mental Health' course with the Collaborative Learning College at CAMH.

Ryan is also a regular at Jokers Theatre & Comedy Club, and was recently featured as one of 8 "rising comedians to watch" on


- Darryl Zeitz, a graduate of the Second City Standup Comedy program in Toronto. He is also the father of the MC, Ryan Zeitz, and helped him to jumpstart his own comedy career!

- Moira LePage, winner of countless Toronto comedy competitions such as the Bring It! New Talent Competition, Laugheteria Contest, and Black Sheep Comedy's 'Testing Attention Please'!

- Melanie Dahling, a touring headliner who has been featured at Zoofest, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, SheDot Festival, and the Oddblock Comedy Festival!

And your Headliner, AL VAL!

"Al Val is a comedian/musician/actress from Toronto. Her honest and insightful yet silly and spontaneous account of her transgender journey has turned heads across North America and has earned her appearances at renowned festivals such as Just For Laughs, Halifax Comedy Festival, and many others, as well as earned her a writing role on the 30th season of "This Hour Has 22 Minutes".

Though she has taped stand-up performances for CBC Gem and Crave and can be currently seen every Friday on OutTV/Apple TV's third season of "Drag Heals", Al Val is surely an act that must be seen in person to be believed - and celebrated!"
