AL VAL

Comedian

Al Val is a comedian/musician/actress from Toronto. Her honest and insightful yet silly and spontaneous account of her transgender journey has turned heads across North America and has earned her appearances at renowned festivals such as Just For Laughs, JFL Toronto and Vancouver, Off-JFL/Zoofest, Halifax Comedy Festival, The Arctic Comedy Festival, and many others, as well as earned her a writing role on the 30th season of "This Hour Has 22 Minutes". Though she has taped standup performances for CBC Gem, Crave & CTV, and was a lead cast member on season 3 of OutTV's multiple award-winning docuseries "Drag Heals", Al Val is surely an act that must be seen in person to be believed - and celebrated!
