EVELYN REESE - BIO
As Susan Fischer’s favourite alter ego, Evelyn Reese has performed on every big Toronto comedy stage (and countless small ones), including Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, the Rivoli, the Comedy Bar, Lunacy Cabaret, Second City Toronto (“Hell Bound Pride Show”), Diesel Playhouse (“Girls School”) and various Monkey Toast venues. She has appeared on screen with OUTtv and Glam-Glam Productions. Their collaborations won a Q2FFF Best Film award (Evelyn Reese’s Wedding Tribute) and a spot at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival (Evelyn Reese: Near the Red Carpet).
Evelyn has received rave reviews at Fringe and other festivals across Canada for her one-woman shows: The Evelyn Reese Show and Evelyn Reese’s Family Room. Her guerrilla theatre piece – Evelyn Reese’s Walking Tour – took over the Annex neighbourhood at the Toronto Fringe. In the fall of 2019, Evelyn joined a musical-comedy review that premiered at the Arts and Letters Club with plans to take their show across Ontario.
