Ann Pornel

Described by the Globe and Mail as “a right hot blast of funny,” Ann Pornel cut her comedy teeth as a regular cast member on Sunday Night Live, a weekly sketch show in Toronto, and continued creating biting satire at the venerated Second City Toronto MainStage where she wrote 3 critically-acclaimed shows. She is a Canadian Comedy Award nominee and winner of the 2017 Entertainer of the Year award from My Entertainment World.

Ann’s unique perspectives on diversity, body image and inclusion have garnered her spots at NBC’s Break Out Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs (JFL 42). You can hear Ann as a panelist on CBC’s Because News or see her in She the People at Second City, or on award-winning television shows such as Odd Squad and The Baroness Von Sketch Show, where she is also a contributing writer.
