Funny Forum Fridays

Back for a second season, Funny Forum Fridays return with a new lineup featuring some of Canada's best and brightest comedic minds as curated by Mark Selby. Bring a friend, grab a drink, and "frame your mind to mirth and merriment" at the Stratford Festival!

Matt Wright

The next big Newfoundland comedy star. Matt Wright’s hysterical and wry observational comedy has twice been recognized by the JUNO Awards and through appearances on stages all across Canada.

Matt Wright is a JUNO Award losing Canadian stand-up comedian, writer, and actor who has appeared on televised galas for Just For Laughs, CBC, and CTV. Matt has written for six seasons of This Hour Has 22 Minutes where he was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award. As a filmmaker, his short "Snowstorm Roulette" was nominated for Best International Short at the Austin Comedy Festival.

Opener: Anna Menzies
Anna Menzies has a proficiency for bleakly deadpan pronouncements regarding her education and prospects. Her talent for detached self-mockery is matched with a gift for presenting awkward situations in a bad light before finding another angle that’s even worse. She can be heard on SiriusXM and JFL Originals.
