Lauded for her quick wit and exceptional comedic ability, award winning actor/writer Brigitte Gall is an in-demand host. Never one to walk the same straight line twice, Gall has recently taken the circuitous route to the house of Parliament, by way of stand-up comedy, turned actor, turned writer/producer, turned playwright, turned renovation Maven, to political junky as a municipal councillor for Ward 1, Minden Hills, Ontario. Gall’s journey speaks to her versatility as an accomplished public speaker. From galas, to comedy clubs, to the board room and city hall – there is no crowd that Gall cannot win over.
The Toronto Globe and Mail writes, “It’s a relief to come across a Canadian comic who does smart, funny Canadian content”.
The Toronto Star says, “…without question, Gall shows a facility for great body language…powered by wit and playfulness…”
Now Magazine cites Gall as… “one of those fine comic performers who can touch emotions as well as the funny bone.”
Brigitte’s television credits include the renovation/design show Me, My House & I (Gemini nominee), Joan of Montreal (Gemini Winner), Blue Murder (Gemini nominee) and The World’s Greatest Spas.
As a gala and fundraiser host, Gall’s happy (and diverse) clients include:
