I’m Brie Watson!
I’m a bilingual (English/French) stand-up, improv and sketch comedian/writer/blogger/producer/office-wench living in Toronto. I teach improv to students as part of The Second City’s School Programs and am a member of active improv troupes; Exit, Pursued by a Bear, The Younger Years and sketch troupe; Utilidors. I’m currently taking the Longform Conservatory at The Second City and am also an Improv Conservatory graduate of that institution, as well as a graduate of the Humber College Comedy Writing & Performance program. And of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa, now that we’re on the subject. I was a Tim Sims Award nominee at Fresh Meat in 2012. I produce live comedy events around Toronto and have toured in Eastern and Central Canada.
I started this blog while at Humber, telling tales of what a green comedian’s first baby steps might look like. Then, when I graduated, I decided to keep documenting.
I’m also writing here because I have a terrible memory and I may need to resort back to this blog when I forget who I am after getting thrown out onto the streets from a Starbucks for smelling too much of urine and cat-vomit. (What?)
