Heather Witherden: Heather Witherden has been described as being like hot chocolate: sweet but scalding. When you hear her, you can expect someone to get burned! In 2006 a good friend cornered her into taking a stab at stand-up, seeing that she was frustrated with the mundane madness of motherhood. Who would have known that her tongue-in-cheek delivery would soon gain the attention of the CBC radio show, “ So You Think You’re Funny”, and then XM Satellite radio’s ‘Laugh Tracks’. Heather welcomed the chance to perform in many strange and wonderful venues, and has collaborated with many seasoned comedians, actors and playwrights. Her fringe theatre debut in 2010 ( Breast Friends ) put her on the comedy map, surprising many a critic with her strong voice. Uptown Magazine called her,’ one of the funniest local women around’. An undeniable flirt onstage, Heather gives a nod and a wink to feminism with her hosting of a neo-burlesque show called Moonlight Madness, however, it’s her soft side that truly engages the audience, whether it’s through storytelling, theatre or stand-up comedy. Heather has let life shape who she has become, and if that’s a bit lopsided, that’s just the way it is. Check her out at HeatherWitherden.com.
