We’re on the hunt for Toronto’s funniest residents! This week, we spoke to Cathy Boyd to learn more about her comedic style and new album, Wise Tracks.
How would you describe your comedy style?
Without a doubt it’s deadpan, dry-wit humour. I’m basically playing myself.
Who are some of your influences?
I’d say in no particular order comedic influences would be Seinfeld, Woody Allen, Steven Wright, Tig Notaro
Who was your favourite comedian growing up?
Growing up? LOL That would be in the 60’s and 70’s. George Carlin for sure. Steve Martin.
Who is your favourite comedian now?
If I had only one to choose I would say Sebastian Maniscalco.
What is your pre-show ritual?
Writing, editing, rewriting……if time permits a long walk to go over the material in my head. Some more editing. I also lke to try jokes out on Facebook. Not the best place but it can give you an indication of whether it’s funny or not.
