Heidi Foss

Called ‘a revelation’ by UK’s ‘The Independent’ and heralded as ‘fantastically intelligent’ by ‘The Globe and Mail’, Heidi - a four time Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-up Comic in Canada, and has combined her background in theatre with her unusually sardonic perception of everyday life to become a standout presence on the North American comedy scene. Her dry, deadpan delivery has earned her three televised CBC galas as a part of the ‘Just For Laughs’ Festival, as well as numerous appearances on CBC radio, television, CBC’s ‘Halifax Comedy Festival’, and on CTV’s ‘Comedy Now!’ In addition to screenwriting, story editing and series development for shows on HBO, FOX, PBS, FAMILY and YTV, Heidi won a Canadian Comedy Award as part of the staff writing team on CBC’s hit series ‘This Hour Has Twenty Two Minutes’ and had a CBC development deal in 2007. In 2011, Heidi signed an exclusive writer-producer deal with ABC Family Channel to develop her own original sitcom series. Recently, at the 2012 Whistler Film Festival, Heidi’s animated feature film script “Butterfly Tale” won the inaugural China-Canada Gateway Competition for a multi-million dollar production deal.
