“Kimmett is able to take you from tears to bladder busting laughter faster than the speed of light. Poignant and sensitive, personal and generic at the same time. However, it is Deborah’s impeccable timing and delivery that truly sets this show apart. This is way more than stand up (even though it is stand up at it’s very best) because it doesn’t conform to the limits of one genre. If you can see this performance you should!” ( Len Whalen)

“From the opening moments Deborah Kimmett we laughed and laughed, and listened. You, made me and a a 26-yr-old erupt with laughter at the same time over and over, clutching each other! It’s such nuanced writing, questioning the big things, and the everyday and wondering whether they’re the same damn thing. Sassy and memorable! Whoo-hew!” Julia Bennett

She is a regular on CBC’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival, LOL and is an accomplished author of four books, Reality is Overrated and That Which Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Funnier, and Out Running Crazy. Deb’s new book Window-shopping for God will be published late fall 2022. She was nominated twice for the National Magazine Award for Humour. As well, she has been shortlisted for the Governor-General Award for her play Miracle Mother in 1984. She has written 52 episodes of TV on Steve Smith’s Go Girl.
