Erica Sigurdson is a comedian who has charmed and joked her way into the top of the Canadian comedy world.
Experience: Erica Sigurdson ’s first exposure to stand-up was watching Johnny Carson and while she didn’t decide right at the moment to be a comic, the seed had been planted in her seven-year old mind. After watching the comedian perform, Erica wrote her first joke: “What can a person in a wheelchair never be”? “A stand-up comic.”
Vancouver Comedian Erica Sigurdson is best known for her rapier on CBC Radio’s smash hit The Debaters. Erica is in high demand for film, television and live appearances.

“Erica’s show was wonderful. Erica touched base on the day of the show and that was extremely appreciated. Just confirming everything, that she got in and so forth was a such a relief.”

“Erica similarly destroyed the crowd later that evening. And we made sure she knew it. 45 minutes of wonderfully tuned-in; on-point humour. Again top marks!”
“Our event was absolutely wonderful. Erica was such a pleasure to work with, hilarious and adapted her act as she went to suit our employees. She really worked hard to make our event a success and I would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to someone else.”
