“[S]he is a crowd favorite of burly Miners and Grandmas alike, and everyone in-between. Known to take an audience on a journey from witty to heartbreaking then back to laugh riot.”
Excerpted from press release:
Jenny Hamilton will travel over 4 thousand km to make you laugh!
Coming from the Yukon, Canada’s True North, Jenny makes her solo debut at the Toronto Fringe.
Jenny Hamilton is a stand up comedian from Canada’s true north, the Yukon. Jenny has been entertaining people for decades, the last 7 years with a mic in her hand. Performing from Alaska to Australia, she is a crowd favorite of burly Miners and Grandmas alike, and everyone in-between. Known to take an audience on a journey from witty to heartbreaking then back to laugh riot.
Jenny brings her original and personal comedy to her shows. Growing up and living in the Yukon as an out and proud queer has given her a different perspective of the world. A facetious skewed view.
Founder and performer with the Yukon Gold Comics, a rag tag group of diverse stand up comedians from Whitehorse, fans have been asking for a solo show. Klondyke…Stand Up Straight from the Yukon is her breakout show as a single performer.
Comedy that is quick, witty and more often than not, down right filthy.
