Comedian Erica Sigurdson’s wit is deadly.

She’s known as the sugar-coated razor blade.

For 10 years she’s performed in major festivals across Canada including Montreal’s Just For Laughs. Sigurdson has recorded a Comedy Now special for CTV and visited Kandahar to record the television special for CBC called Stand-Up for Kandahar. During the recording there were two rocket attacks, sending the crew into a bunker during the second attack.

Sigurdson is a regular contributor to CBC radio programs, including The Current.

She performs at the Port Theatre Friday (Jan. 11) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $24-28 and are available at the Port Theatre ticket office, by calling 250-754-8550 or at www.porttheatre.com.
