Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
The only black female comedian on the circuit in Canada, Dana's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. Adept, charming and astute, she is warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour. This is a lady not to be missed.
'Like a gift from the Comedy Gods' (The Herald)
'An ebullient and instantly likable presence on stage' (Arts Desk)
'... forthright and funny' (Funhouse Comedy CLub).
