Haven Sleep Co is excited to present the opening show of the Funny for a Girl Comedy Festival!
Summerhill’s Ladies Night Vines & Laughs is a hilarious showcase of BC’s funniest females.
Nina Wilder is a multi-dimensional entertainer who combines theatrics, physical humour and a unique perspective to delight audiences from all angles. Raised on the outskirts of Vancouver, Canada as the last generation before the 2000 millennia, Nina is one of the older Millennials; so while she loves avocados, Snapchat can suck it. Instagram too, for that matter. She thinks we should start “Instagrumps” and talk about how life can also be messy, no matter what filter you apply.
Nancy was born in Saigon, Vietnam and came to Canada as a refugee. She learned to speak English by watching TV shows like Sesame Street and the Brady Bunch. Now a fluent English speaker, Nancy performs standup comedy across Canada and is the co-producer of Twins Comedy Productions.Nancy’s material comes from the colourful life she has led and her experiences from growing up in an immigrant family, working odd jobs and dating as working, single mom of a pre-teen boy and a cat. Her hobbies include carpentry, DIY projects, motorcycles, sports and dabbling in the culinary arts. Nancy could be your perfect husband.
Bonnie Esson is a Kelowna based stand up comedian who has performed extensively throughout British Columbia since beginning this strange career in 2018. Her comedy focuses on the terrifying and annoying world of modern dating and the absurdity of human relationships. In addition to this she loves to point out the absurd and strange in every day life.
Prior to taking the plunge into stand up, Bonnie performed with the Okanagan’s premier improv group, Monkey With a Button, as well as spending a good 3 years doing critically acclaimed theatrical productions (mainly so she could show off how well she can do accents).
You will also be treated to a taste of Summerhill’s finest vintage. Thanks to our amazing sponsor, Haven Sleep Co for their generous ongoing support!
