The Doo Wops are a renowned musical-comedy duo blending song and satire with a uniquely Italian-Canadian flavour. Made up of John Catucci (Host of the Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here!, two-time Canadian Screen Award-winner for Best Lifestyle Series) and David Mesiano, The Doo Wops have appeared on stages and screens across North America and taken their act international, performing in the UK, and in Australia at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Their album, Almost Nearly Recognizable, is available on iTunes. During their rise, they won the Just for Laughs Homegrown Comic Competition that led to many more festival appearances. They've received two Canadian Comedy Award-nominations, one for their hour-long comedy special, Comedy NOW! on CTV/The Comedy Network, and one for a Just for Laughs gala performance. The duo are excited to return to Just For Laughs in Montreal this summer.
Laurie Elliott, a four-time Canadian Comedy Award-winner, has made a name for herself as one of the most versatile and entertaining comedian-writer-actors in Canada. Laurie's stand-up credits include all the major Canadian Comedy festivals including Just for Laughs in Montreal and Toronto, and as far away as the Cape Town Comedy Festival in South Africa to name a few. You may have seen her and heard her on CTV, The Comedy Network, IFC, CBC, Teletoon, Showcase and on CBC Radio's The Debaters. She is a prolific writer and has contributed to numerous live action and animated TV shows. She is simply a delight.

She was nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards -Best Stand-up Newcomer and Best Comedy Short for One Woman Show, which she wrote and starred in.
