You may have seen her in shows all over the GTA or the She Dot comedy festival, the Big Improv Comedy festival, Fundy Fringe, Montreal Sketchfest or at the Toronto Sketchfest for the past three years in a row.

Bria is currently a student in the Comedy Writing and Performance program at Humber College. She has performed at Comedy Bar, Yuk Yuk’s and many soul crushing open mics. Her comedy has been described as insightful, eccentric and biting. She is often told to smile more, to which she flashes her shiny adult braces.
