Born and raised in Moncton, NB, Catherine now calls Halifax home and loves sharing her quirky and unique take on life.
Vancouver-born comedian Mark Little is part of the new crop of comics currently based in Halifax. Although he has only been doing stand-up a short while, his brand of original, ridiculous, alternative comedy recently earned him a spot on the Best of show for CBC’s “So You Think You’re Funny?” He is also the director of the longest running sketch show in Halifax (The Sunday-Night Comedy Spectacular), and one half of the improv duo Picnicface, which was recently nominated for The Coast’s Best Halifax Comedian award. Watch out for Mark Little, they say. LIke everyone’s saying it. For real.
