Host and Master of Ceremonies for our 44th Markham Village Music “Virtual” Festival

Aliya Kanani is a Toronto-based comedian best known for her playful and mischievous
personality. Her solo show, “Where You From, From?”, sold out at the 2019 Just for
Laughs Festival, 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and 2020 World Fringe
in Perth.

Aliya has performed on stages around the world including the renowned Gotham
Comedy Club in New York with Standup NBC and The Comedy Store in Sydney,
Australia, and is always happy to return to her home club, Absolute Comedy, Toronto.

You can also catch a few of Aliya’ jokes on the CBC LOL network and SiriusXM.
Though Aliya has toured doing comedy internationally, performing her standup in both
English and French, she still brags that her greatest accomplishment is the time she
made a man throw up from laughing too hard.
