1. Natalie Willett (host): Natalie Willett is a stand-up comedian in Montreal. She was recently featured in Toronto's SheDot Festival and produces Open Michelle Comedy Night, a monthly all-women comics’ show at the The Comedy Nest.

She also happens to have a background in education and community work, and by day works in English Montreal School Board schools with special needs children and youth, and she has also worked in group homes and with Inuit youth.
2. Melina Trimarchi: Melina Trimarchi performs at comedy shows all over the city. She will perform in English
3. Daniel Carin: Daniel Carin was selected to perform in the Just for Laughs Homegrown Show this summer. He will do an English set at Chez Doris.
