Winnipeg Comedy Fest Interview: Stand-up comic Rebecca Reeds

Filed under: Kinda Sorta Maybe Like a Podcast

Rebecca Reeds started her comedy career in Ottawa, performing at open mics and eventually being part of an Ottawa Fringe Festival show. She's since made the move to Toronto, where there are not only far more opportunities for her to get stage time and hone her craft, but where she can perform alongside touring comics who regularly hit up the city (such as a recent opening spot for Matt Braunger at Toronto's Comedy Bar).

Reeds has previously performed at the SheDot Festival and JFL 42 -- as well as made appearances on CBC Radio and SiriusXM -- but she's coming to the Winnipeg Comedy Festival for the first time this year, appearing on the "Hot Mess" Gala alongside Howie Miller, Jeff McEnrey, and Kathleen McGee. We spoke last week ahead of her visit to Winnipeg about the early part of her career in Ottawa, the difficulties of moving to a much bigger comedy city like Toronto, her growth as a comic over the last couple years, and what she expects from her first big TV gala experience.

You can catch Rebecca Reeds in Winnipeg on the "Hot Mess" Gala on Saturday, April 8 at 9:15 PM at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre, as well find her online on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
