Called ‘a revelation’ by UK’s ‘The Independent’ and heralded as ‘fantastically intelligent’ by ‘The Globe and Mail’, Heidi Foss is a three time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-up in Canada, and has combined her background in theatre with her unusually sardonic perception of everyday life to become a standout presence on the North American comedy scene. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her three televised galas as a part of the Montreal International ‘Just For Laughs’ Festival, as well as numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, CBC’s ‘Halifax Comedy Festival’, and on CTV’s ‘Comedy Now!’
In addition to screenwriting, story editing and series development for shows on HBO, FOX, PBS, FAMILY and YTV, Heidi won a Canadian Comedy Award as part of the staff writing team on CBC’s hit series ‘This Hour Has Twenty Two Minutes’ and won a CBC development deal at the 2007 Just For Laughs “Just For Pitching” event. Recently, Heidi signed an exclusive writer-producer deal with ABC Family Channel to develop her own original sitcom series. She is currently writing on a hit pre-school series being co-produced by Disney France called ‘Bali’.
