“Her brand of self-deprecating, brutally honest humour had the packed room howling.”
TORONTO, ON (May 13, 2014) – After a string of sold-out shows, Canada’s “queen of comedy”, Carla Collins, is returning to Toronto to perform four instalments of her gut-busting stand-up comedy act, “Selfie-Centred”. Collins will be performing at The Flying Beaver Pubaret (488 Parliament St.) on Saturday, May 24, 2014 (7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. showtimes) and at Locale Restaurant and Bar (12981 Keele S. at King Rd.) on Saturday, May 31, 2014 (7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. showtimes).
Currently in Toronto shooting Super Channel’s new comedic panel/variety show, “Too Much Information”, Collins is thrilled to be back in Canada. “I love coming home to perform in Toronto because the audiences are really smart, warm, hip and a tad drunk — and my fabulous Mom comes to every show. Besides, I need to be in Toronto to help find the missing Rob Ford. Instead of his picture being on a milk carton, it’s on bottles of Grey Goose.”
Widely known for her hit television series, “Carlawood”, Collins has been a long-time figure in the Canadian entertainment scene. In 2001, Carla’s first solo stand-up special, “The Wonder Bra Years”, aired on The Comedy Network, becoming one of the highest rated in the network’s Comedy Now series. Collins is also credited as being the first woman to anchor a major market morning radio show in Canada.
Carla has also become a staple in the Los Angeles stand-up community, performing shows in venues such as the Hollywood Improv and The Comedy Store. Although based in Los Angeles, Carla frequently returns to Canada to perform stand-up shows in Ottawa and Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; St. John’s, Newfoundland; Montreal, Quebec; and St. John, New Brunswick.
