Jim McNally (Headliner)
Jim McNally is a comedian with an irreverent outlook that blends big city wit with small town cheekiness. His Irish, story-telling roots shine through in his performances which weave observations of the everyday into stories from his own life to highlight the absurdities of the world we live in. Jim’s spontaneous and engaging style, quick wit, and knack for seeing the outlandish make him a natural, versatile performer who leaves audiences doubled over with laughter and wanting more. Although Canadian and American audiences have been howling at Jim McNally for over a decade now, he is becoming more and more recognized lately after stellar performances at the Ha!lifax Comedy Festival and on CTV’s “Comedy NOW!”. In 2005, he was the first comedian to get a standing ovation at Ottawa’s Absolute Comedy and was asked back to headline their first anniversary weekend.

Martha O'Neill (MC)
Martha O’Neill has a wry, often edgy comedy that is at odds with her laid-back, likeable stage presence; a combination which has made her an audience favourite wherever she performs. This Toronto native spent the first 10 years of her comedy career performing improv and sketch, but shifted her focus to stand-up almost nine years ago and hasn’t looked back since. She has performed all over Canada and as far away as Dublin and London. Television appearances include “The Mom Show” and “’Til Debt Do Us Part”, both on the Slice Network and “Come Dine With Me Canada” on W Network. On radio, she has been heard doing voice-overs for CBC News, contributing to BBC World Service and on Sirius/XM’s “Laugh Attack” and “Anything Goes”. Currently, she is the co-host of the “Mike Atom Drive Home Show” on 105.9 The Region. In 2007, Martha was a semi-finalist in Q-107’s “Funniest Person with a Day Job” competition. In 2009, she was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Newcomer” and competed in both the 2010 and 2012 “World Series of Comedy” in Las Vegas. In 2013, Martha had her own comedy special as part of the “No Kidding!” series on iChannel. Martha is also the Executive Producer and founder of SheDot Festival – Toronto’s Festival of Funny Women.
