Tranna Wintour

Celebrate Pride Month with Tranna Wintour, Quebec’s most buzzed-about comedy export, who has taken the stand-up world by storm with her fresh and funny pop culture obsessions.

Tranna Wintour is a bilingual comedian, singer, writer, and producer—she’s basically Barbra Streisand minus the fame, fortune, and cloned dogs. She was one of Just For Laughs’ New Faces Canada (2019) and was named by Fashion magazine as one of the queens of Canadian comedy. Tranna also performs in French and did her first Juste Pour Rire gala in 2021, which led her to Québec’s Big Brother Célébrités. Tranna was hailed as the show’s breakthrough star by the Journal Métro, which proclaimed her groundbreaking run to the top 4 as the best moment on Québec TV in years. In addition to her work as a performer, Tranna co-hosts and co-produces CBC Podcasts’ Chosen Family with her creative partner/comedy soulmate, Thomas Leblanc. Chosen Family reached the top 10 of iTunes Canada’s top comedy podcasts and was named one of Apple’s Best Podcasts for two consecutive years. Her debut album, a mix of original songs and covers, Safe From Your Affection, is available on all streaming platforms.
