Meet Kingston’s amazing Local Comedians

Ryan Dennee

Born and raised in Kingston Ontario, Ryan began his comedy career in 2007 just shy of his 30th birthday.

A natural storyteller, Ryan combines real life experiences with his powerful ability to go off the cuff and work the crowd, creating a hilarious night of entertainment enjoyed by all ages. Dennee has the uncanny ability to play to any age group, from high school students to seniors and everyone in between, Ryans likability on stage is inimitable.

An avid supporter of Canadas military, Ryan has performed at nearly a dozen different armed forces bases across the country. Ryan has been featured on XM Radio multiple times. Hes performed at JFL 42, The Cottage Country Comedy Festival, the Waterloo Comedy Festival, and is the producer of Kingstons Ice Cold Comedy Festival. Ryan has been seen on several television commercials, and his comedy is routinely heard on K-Rock 105.7FM.

Dennee has been described by several veteran comedians as a comic flying under the radar, and a comedic force to watch out for.

Patrick Hellyer

Patrick hails from Stirling Ontario. He is a father and local comic. He has preformed on many stages in the area and focuses his work on real life experience in the outrageous world he resides in. Patrick won the Magnificent 7 comedy competition held at Daft Brewing and continues to preform on a regular basis.

Christabelle Witt

Christabelle Witt is a local comic described as “playfully dark”. Her sexual nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you wouldn’t have imagined. She draws material from her own life experiences, including a unique family dynamic, and many other vulnerable moments. You can hear her on the album “Diversity Hire” on Sirius XM, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Ashley Perna

For a whopping 4.5 years, Ashley Perna has been rocking the comedy scene, commanding the attention of major clubs and independent producers alike. From the grandest stages to the quirkiest comedy dungeons, she has conquered them all with her semi-dark, story-teller style of humor coveting topics including mental health and the wild world of dating. 

When she’s not making audiences howl with laughter, Ashley can be found navigating the highs and lows of her own life with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor. She’s the master of turning awkward moments into comedy gold, reminding us all that the best way to survive life’s absurdities is to laugh along with them.
