Award-Winning Canadian Comedian Carla Collins Returns to Headline Toronto Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club This February
“Lightning fast, Carla takes on everyone in the pop culture field; she’s like a whip smart, hysterical version of TMZ.”

TORONTO, ON (January 31, 2017) - Comedian, actress, television host and best-selling author Carla Collins is making her triumphant return to Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club (224 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON) to perform six instalments of her award winning stand-up comedy show this February. Collins’ show, which takes place the evenings of February 8 – 12, 2017, is a fusion of cheeky pop culture references, hot topics and hilarious tales of her life in Los Angeles, and will be recorded for Sirius XM Canada Laughs. In addition, Collins is slated for four additional performances at comedy venues in Mississauga, Ottawa, Guelph and Barrie.
From hosting Canada’s highest rated entertainment show “eNow” to starring in her hit network television series, “Carlawood”, Collins has become a prominent and well respected figure in the Canadian entertainment scene. 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. Hailed as the “Queen of Comedy” and “Canada’s Tina Fey” by Canadian press, Carla can currently be seen as a celebrity panelist on Super Channel’s comedy/variety series “Too Much Information” and is also a regular celebrity gossip and fashion commentator on Breakfast Television.
“Carla’s material ranges from silly to cerebral; she covers everything from Trudeau to Trump, new age to old school, plus sex, death and daddy issues. Her show is high energy, fast-paced and often largely improvised. Collins loves to play with the crowd but don’t worry — she won’t pick on you, she’s much more likely to hit on you.”
Since moving to Los Angeles, Collins was named “the funniest woman in comedy” by BeautyStyleWatch magazine and headlines clubs and theatres all over North America. She has become a staple in the stand-up community, performing at venues such as The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, The Jon Lovitz Club and Flappers in LA. Carla has also been featured in Just for Laughs, the Los Angeles Comedy Festival, and the Vancouver Comedy Festival. Recently, Collins was awarded the prestigious Comedian Of The Year Award by the Southern California Motion Picture Council and is currently filming “The Last Laugh” a sitcom she created about performing stand-up at funerals. Collins can also be found in her new web-series entitled “Carla Collins Comes Clean”, which features Collins speaking to camera in a bubble-filled bathtub, presents the comedian sharing personal stories in an uninhibited and no-holds-barred manner.
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.
