Experience of Erica Sigurdson
Erica’s first exposure to stand-up was watching Johnny Carson. And while she didn’t decide right at the moment to be a comic, the seed had been planted in her seven-year old mind. After watching the comedian perform, Erica wrote her first joke: “What can a person in a wheelchair never be?”… Answer: “A stand-up comic.” (Ha, ha.)
Vancouver comedian Erica Sigurdson has since refined her technique and delivery and is now best known for her entertaining banter on CBC Radio’s smash hit The Debaters. Erica is in high demand for film, television and live appearances. In 2007, Erica was awarded a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting along with co-writer Peter Kelamis, for their writing on the 21st Annual Gemini Awards. In 2007 and 2008, Erica was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-up in Canada.
Erica Sigurdson has been performing stand-up across Canada for more than ten years, has traveled to Afghanistan to entertain the troops, and was a semi-finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competitions. She regularly contributes―both in writing and performing―for CBC Radio’s The Debaters, The Current, and Definitely Not The Opera. Erica worked as a story editor on season one of the new CBC comedy Mr. D. She has also written for a CTV television variety-show pilot.
In addition to her 27 appearances on The Debaters, Erica Sigurdson has recorded 5 television specials in 2013 alone. Fun, quirky, and right-on-point, Erica shows us how to see―and embrace―the humour in everyday life.
