Biography

Heidi Foss

Called ‘a revelation’ by UK’s ‘The Independent’ and heralded as ‘fantastically intelligent’ by ‘The Globe and Mail’, Heidi is a two-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-up in Canada and has combined her background in theatre with her unusually sardonic perception of everyday life to become a standout presence on the North American comedy scene. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her three televised galas as a part of the Montreal International ‘Just For Laughs’ Festival, as well as numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, and on CTV’s ‘Comedy Now!’ In addition to screenwriting, story editing and series development for shows on HBO, FOX, PBS, FAMILY and YTV, Heidi won a Canadian Comedy Award as part of the staff writing team on CBC’s hit series ‘This Hour Has Twenty Two Minutes’ and won a CBC deal to development her own original television series at the Just For Laughs “Just For Pitching” event.
