Christine Medrano is a tiny stand up comedian who was born and raised in the cold streets of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and could best be mistaken for a Canadian Dora the Explorer. Her humor is what happens when a mixed race woman grows up in the suburbs while attending 14 years of private Catholic school. Her thoughtful, reflective and self-deprecating comedy is anchored by her boundless energy.
A unique point of view has helped make her a finalist for Sirius XM’s Canada’s Next Top Comic, a feature at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and an opening act for Maria Bamford. She has appeared in numerous videos for Cracked, Buzzfeed, Refinery29, Funny or Die, Comedy Central and All Def Digital, and featured on HBO’s Entre Nos: Part Four in 2018. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
Christine did a great job- especially for this being her second live gig in eight months!
I loved her set, and I could tell our students did too. She was really great at connecting with the audience and wasn’t afraid to be herself. I really admired her honesty in the set; it was refreshing, and I think relatable to all of us at one time or another.
She also arrived early, and I could tell she put in a lot of preparation for tonight, which means a lot to me as an event producer to know that she cared that much about the show. She was classy and professional, yet fun and casual at the same time! Christine would be a joy to have on our campus again down the road.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you or Christine! It’s been a pleasure working with both of you.
