Sabrina Jalees’s comedy has taken the world by storm. Opening for the likes of Russell Peters and a headliner comic in her own right, Jalees never fails to draw laughter with her shoot-from-the-hip style. As a keynote speaker, Jalees tells her personal story with sincerity and wit, relaying the message that when you own and embrace your individuality, you unlock the transformation from “embarrassed” to “empowered.”
A writer, actor, and comedian, Jalees has written for HBOMax’s Search Party, Netflix’s Big Mouth and Human Resources, Apple’s Fraggle Rock, and more. She is currently the host of CTV’s new reality show, Farming for Love, and a judge on CTV Comedy Channel’s Roast Battle Canada. Jalees has also appeared in Carol’s Second Act, Transparent, Flashpoint, System Crash, Plastic Makes Perfect, House Party, and The A-List.
Jalees started her career in stand-up comedy at the age of 16, becoming the youngest comic to tour for Yuk Yuks, record a Comedy Now special, and perform at the prestigious Just For Laugh’s Festival. Now a seasoned professional, Jalees has toured North America, England, and South Africa, with her special The Comedy Lineup currently streaming on Netflix. She was also the Toronto Star’s weekly humour columnist for three years, a contender on Last Comic Standing, and has written, performed, and held down the news desk on CBC’s iconic This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
