Fireball. Comedy Warrior. Addict Whisperer. Mom. Whatever the title, Melanie Rose has one hell of a story to tell. This Divorced, Mother of four continues to stun and charm audiences across the country with her tales of marriage, divorce, past drug addiction and mental health issues – always finding the funny within. She’s a favourite at comedy clubs throughout the country, opening for Nikki Payne, Caroline Rhea and Canadian legend, Mike MacDonald. A Yuk Yuk’s regular, she’s also been featured on CRAVE TV, the critically-acclaimed show, “She Kills Me,” Victoria’s Funny Women Festival and numerous corporate events.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll probably refresh your drink. But, mostly, you’ll wonder if it’s all true. Trust us, it is.
Featuring: Yumi Nagashima
After moving from Japan to Vancouver, Yumi Nagashima found herself in a comedy club on a date. Yumi made her stand-up debut in October of 2016, and suddenly she knew what she’d been born to do. Nagashima has done plenty in 2019, taking her act around the globe, thanks to invitations from Montreal’s Just for Laughs showcase, the Jakarta International Comedy Festival, and Comedy Central Asia in Singapore and the release of her debut comedy album, My Name Is Yumi. And she’s got ambitions beyond owning stages across the world. These include landing her own sitcom, branching out into film, and creating shorts for her YouTube channel, which has 167,000 subscribers and counting.
