Heidi Foss

Called "a revelation" by UK’s The Independent, heralded as "fantastically intelligent" by The Globe and Mail, and "one of the country’s best" by the Montreal Gazette, Heidi is a four-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-up Comedian in Canada. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her four televised CBC galas as a part of the International Just For Laughs Festival, numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival, CTV’s Comedy Now, on the acclaimed George Stroumboulopoulous show, and just recently on CBS’s Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen!

In addition to screenwriting, story editing and series development for shows on HBO, FOX, PBS, FAMILY, YTV, NICKELODEON, and the BBC, Heidi won a Canadian Comedy Award as part of the staff writing team on CBC’s hit series This Hour Has 22-Minutes and won a CBC development deal at the 2007 Just For Laughs “Just For Pitching” event. In 2011, Heidi signed an exclusive writer-producer deal with ABC Family Channel to develop her own original sitcom series, and at the 2012 Whistler Film Festival, Heidi’s animated feature film script Butterfly Tale won the inaugural China-Canada Gateway Competition. Heidi recently wrote multiple episodes of Toon Marty, which is currently airing on Teletoon, as well as story editing the fifth season of Mohawk Girls for the APTN Network.
