Courtney Gilmour is one of Toronto’s most unique voices and sought after comedy talents. She delivered a breakout performance here 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 CBC’s Winnipeg and Halifax comedy festivals, as well as a triumphant return to Montreal to tape a set for The Comedy Network at Just for Laughs.
Courtney was one of “the 42” at Toronto’s JFL42 festival two years in a row with her own run of headlining shows and in April 2019 she wrapped a hugely successful tour as part of the Just For Laughs Roadshow. She has written for and made appearances on The Beaverton, the web series Space Dragon & Kim, and CBC’s The Debaters. She can be seen touring around the country with Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs and heard regularly on SiriusXM and CBC LOL. Courtney’s warm, accessible, and intelligent brand of stand-up has made her a hit with audiences nationwide.
