REBECCA KOHLER

When not writing for one of Canada’s top television comedy series, Canadian
Comedy Award winner Rebecca Kohler takes to demolishing stand-up stages in
both Canada and the US. Balancing an innate benevolence with a tongue like an
acid attack, Rebecca has the ability to dissect the darkness of life’s truths while
maintaining a cheeky adorability. With a focus on connecting as humans and an
aversion to low-hanging fruit, Rebecca Kohler’s stand-up will educate, comfort
and eye-open all while inducing laughter. If you find yourself groaning while
watching her, Rebecca asks you to remember that she is not offensive, but that
life itself is offensive.

With fifteen years under her belt, the 2013 Toronto’s Best Female Comic (NOW
Magazine) has had her own half hour special for the Comedy Network, multiple
televised appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, her own 1-hour
show at Toronto’s JFL42, several TV tapings at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival,
Halifax Comedy Festival, Moncton Comedy Festival and several other Canadian
comedy festivals in cities you may or may not have heard of. Rebecca also tours
nationally as a headliner for Yuk Yuks.

Writing credits include: CBC’s Workin’ Moms, Schitt’s Creek (starring Eugene
Levy and Catherine O’Hara), Kim’s Convenience, The Ron James Show, Spun
Out, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Scaredy Squirrel, The Debaters, Just For
Laughs Galas (including, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, Jim Gaffigan). In
2015, Rebecca also had her own national weekly column for Metro Canada.
Rebecca should be famous by now but whatever.
