Ben Miner
Ben Miner
Ben Miner is a ridiculous human being. When he’s not patrolling the city decked out in his replica Spider-Man costume saving pedestrians from menacing looking pigeons he can be found on-air or on a comedy club stage. He’s been with Laugh Attack since day 1 and has hosted a variety of shows such as Chomping @ The Bit, The Vinyl Cut and Comic Stripped as well various segments and specials. Ben’s a stand-up comic first and foremost though. He’s been performing since 1998 and in that time he’s toured coast to coast in every club you can think of and he’s even performed at the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival. Ben’s also an award-winning gangsta-rap artist having performed everywhere from the Apollo Theatre in New York to Dubai and everywhere in between. Ok, part of this bio might not be true. Just saying.

Alright, good chat.
Sophie Buddle
Sophie Buddle
Sophie Buddle has been called one of Canada’s fastest rising stars more than she has been called by her mother (a lot).

Sophie was runner-up at SiriusXM Top Comic, which has led to her first national TV appearance here at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal this summer. Barely Legal, the monthly show she runs with her room-mate in Vancouver, was a featured show at Just For Laughs Northwest. She’s also performed at some of the coolest spots in LA and occasionally writes for CBC’s comedy website.

She isn’t sure whether or not she should include that she’s 22 years old, but some people are extra proud when she does and she’s already a vet having started performing at 15! She plans on putting out her first album this year, watch for it.
