Allyson June Smith
"Simply one of the funniest comedians I’ve ever worked with. Can play any crowd and always has them laughing their heads off. She’s gonna be a huge star."
"Assuredly self-deprecating… hilarious comedian!"
"Wasn’t afraid to be shocking and explicit… hilarious!"
Allyson June Smith commands every stage she walks on to with her own dynamite brand of hilarious material, driven by the strong rhythms that are a hallmark of so much North American stand-up.
Allyson has been called to share the stage with Katherine Ryan, Stewart Francis, John Bishop, Stephen Merchant, Samantha Bee (The Daily Show) and Jason Manford as well as co-hosting Jason’s Absolute Radio show.
Her bold, observational style saw her quickly achieve prominence in Canada. A multiple Canadian Comedy Award Nominee for Best Female Stand Up, Allyson’s credits include her own hour long Comedy Now TV Special, appearances on CBC Radio’s hit show The Debaters, and the Winnipeg, Halifax and Montreal Just For Laughs Festivals, to name just a few.
From the moment she put down the chalk brush and picked up a mic, playing to packed rooms has become like another day in the classroom for this former school teacher who is now hugely successful on the UK comedy scene after moving to Manchester.
Using her sassy blend of in-your-face stand-up and hilariously insightful commentary, she now works for major UK promoters and comedy clubs. It is her genuine and unique sense of humour, combined with excellent performance timing, that has made audiences laugh so much!
