Debra DiGiovanni on how the 'Me Too' movement has changed stand-up comedy
You may remember Debra DiGiovanni from the TV show Video on Trial or her run on Last Comic Standing, but if you're new to her, here's what you need to know: she's got a great voice and she makes jokes about situations that a lot of us can relate to — and wish we could forget.
Five years ago DiGiovanni left Toronto behind to move to what many consider to be the epicentre of comedy: Los Angeles. Tom Power caught up with her while she was back in Canada for a visit, and they talked about the massive changes her industry has experienced, especially thanks to the Me Too movement.
Debra DiGiovanni is performing March 1-3 for JFL NorthWest at the Comedy Mix in Vancouver. Bio, show details, and tickets are available here.
