Note: Live "Monica Hamburg Presents - Confined" Shows are online. See above for the latest episode, tune in for the next show (info on Facebook), or watch a previous show (on Youtube). 


Monica Hamburg is a comedian, producervoice-over artist, podcaster, and storyteller - for a few years, she was even a digital marketing speaker. Her one-person show, "$50 Future" was at NYC's SoloCOM 2019, and her panel show, "Pornomedy" was popular at 2019's Montreal Comiccon, Fringe After Dark & Festival De La Bete Noire. Her shows are a fun & evil time. (That also describes Monica.) 

From February to March 2020, she had a series of new & experimental shows at Freestanding Room. There should be more in-person ones once we survive the apocalypse. Tune in to her live online shows!

She performs stand-up all around & has also done many storytelling shows - especially, "The Stories We Don't Tell" (2 of her stories are in their book!).  

Festival credits include: Off-JFL/Zoofest (Montreal) & Just for Laughs Northwest (Vancouver) with "Tinder Tales", Laugh Riot Grrrl Comedy Festival (Los Angeles), SoloCOM (NYC), Fringe After Dark (Montreal), Ladyfest Montreal, Festival De La Bete Noire (Montreal), New Formats Festival (Toronto), and Nashville's 2018 Broken Record Show, where she was chosen as one of the "Bestival of the Festival". 

Monica's dark comedy podcast "Craigslost (/Dazed and Convicted)", in its various incarnations, was mentioned in Huffington Post and Splitsider, made "New & Noteworthy" and other lists on iTunes, and won an award for the "Most Vulgar Canadian Podcast"! (Dainty flower that she is.) 

She also collaborates with comedian Peter J. Randomski on short films - watch "More Funding Needed" and others on Vimeo.
