Biography

Canadian émigré Allyson June Smith commands every stage she walks onto with her own dynamite brand of hilarious material, driven by the strong rhythms that are a hallmark of so much North American stand-up. 

“Simply one of the funniest comedians I’ve ever worked with. Can play any crowd and always has them laughing their heads off. She’s gonna be a huge star" – Jason Manford

 

"Wasn’t afraid to be shocking and explicit… hilarious" – **** Three Weeks

 

Her bold, observational style saw her quickly achieve prominence in Canada with credits including her own hour long TV comedy special, radio shows and festival appearances; she has also been nominated on numerous occasions for the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up.

"Yet another hilarious Canadian with great hair" – Stewart Francis

 

Drawing inspiration from the funny side of everyday life, she knows exactly how to play her audiences to ensure her performances are always personal and engaging.

"Ultra likeable and versatile" – Now Magazine, Toronto

 

 

"Assuredly self-deprecating… Hilarious comedian" – The National, UAE

 

Allyson performs for audiences ranging from corporate parties to regional clubs. Her talent has taken her all over the world, and has led to her residing in the UK, where she rapidly rose through the ranks of the circuit to make a name for herself wherever she goes.

"If you are a promoter or club owner, and aren't booking Allyson June Smith, then you should hand in your badge and your gun on my desk Monday morning! Absolutely nailed the support slot! She has set the bar high! Think I need a different less-good support .. going on stage in front of hundreds of people expecting me and not only winning them round but absolutely nailing it and even making me have to raise my game!" – Jason Manford

 

Whether she’s on the bill as MC, support, or headliner, she skillfully delights them all with her sassy blend of ballsy stand-up, and hilariously insightful commentary. She works for all the major UK and international promoters, is a regular support for Stewart Francis on his live tour dates, and has supported Jason Manford on tour & co hosted Jason's Absolute Radio Show.
