Since coming out as transgender, Al Val has enjoyed nothing short of a meteoric rise in the Canadian comedy scene. Val has made multiple appearances at the prestigious “Just For Laughs” Festival, as well as for JFL Vancouver and Toronto and The Halifax Comedy Festival. She has taped stand-up sets for CBC Gem, Crave TV, CTV, and “JFL Originals”, is also a cast member of the third season of “Drag Heals” on OutTV, and has written for “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”. Host of her own weekly solo stream-of-consciousness podcast “PodGis”, graduate of Second City’s Conservatory Program, and one part of improv-rock musical duo “OverDude”, there’s no wonder this multitalented whirlwind was voted by her peers as 2020’s “Breakout Comic of the Year” (in the ‘male’ category, no less – really stickin’ it to the fellas!).
Between her boundlessly high energy, vulnerability and honesty regarding her transitional journey, clever, insightful perspective, and spontaneous, silly delivery, Al Val is surely a dynamic, exciting entertainer whose charm you will surely be unable to resist!
