DeAnne Smith

DeAnne Smith, the humble person writing this bio, is an international stand up sensation. Their video from the Winnipeg Comedy Festival “Straight Men Step Up Your Game” has been viewed over 47 million times, and their critically-acclaimed Netflix special, Gentleman Elf, is available as part of the Comedians of the World series. They’ve been on TV from the UK to Australia, and performed everywhere from Iceland to Luxembourg. Their new special, The DeAnne Smith EXperience, taped at Just for Laughs in 2021, is forthcoming on Crave. Time Out Melbourne says they “blend smart and silly subjects with expert conviction” and the UK Telegraph says they’re “Very funny. Effortless charm lets them get away with murder.” They’ve never actually murdered anyone.

DeAnne appears at all Ha!ifax ComedyFest Unplugged shows.
