She recently appeared in Singin in the Rain with Royal City Musical Theatre and was named in the Top Ten in the CBC Next Up Comedy Competition in 2019. She has performed at Lafflines, Yuk Yuks, assorted casinos and dive bars and is thrilled to be back for the second year of GAYlarious!
Steev Letts is a big sweaty gay oaf. He finds inspiration in the many gross rituals that unite us all, and aims to make you laugh at that which makes you cringe.
