Heather Hurst - Ottawa

Heather Hurst fell in love with comedy the first time she saw Tim Conway and Harvey Korman break into giggling fits of laughter on The Carol Burnett Show. She didn’t have the courage to try it herself until 2014 when she entered the Yuk Yuk’s Fatty Arbuckle Cup Competition, and she hasn’t looked back since. Mostly because she is afraid that she will have to go back and clean it up
