Al Val

In recent years, Al Val has enjoyed nothing short of a meteoric rise in the Canadian comedy scene. Val has made appearances at Just For Laughs’ New Faces Showcase, JFL NorthWest, Off-JFL/Zoofest, and has taped stand-up sets for CBC Gem (New Wave of Standup), Crave TV (The Stand-Up Show with Jon Dore), and JFL Originals. Host of her own weekly solo stream-of-consciousness podcast PodGis, graduate of Second City’s Conservatory Program,  and one part of improv-rock musical duo OverDude, there’s no wonder this multitalented whirlwind was voted by her peers as 2020’s Breakout Comic of the Year (in the ‘male’ category, no less – really stickin’ it to the fellas!). Between her boundlessly high energy, vulnerability and honesty regarding her transgender journey, clever, insightful perspective, and spontaneous, silly delivery, Al Val is surely a dynamic, exciting entertainer whose charm you will surely be unable to resist!
