Aisha Alfa

Because she was born in Nigeria and raised in Canada, Alfa's comedy is worldly, energetic and silly, with a positive perspective. She weaves through her bi-racial perspective and random observations, from dating to sex to Santa Claus. This past year in television, Aisha appeared in a Sketch Pilot for The Second City, Super Channel's Too Much Information, TeenNick's Degrassi, and PBS' Odd Squad. Aisha was also a co-host on Much Music's Video on Trial. Previously, she hosted WFPtv, an online lifestyle show, and was a featured comedian in the documentary Sign Up & Stand Up. She has won Winnipeg's Funniest Person with a Day Job Award and was one of the top five Winnipeg finalists for SiriusXM's Canda's Next Top Comic. She performs at clubs across Canda, including Just for Laughs (Montreal), Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and Winnipeg Improv Festival. In the US she has appeared at The Comedy Store (San Diego), The Last Vegas Comedy Show and the Ventura Comedy Festival. Alfa was honored to be a TEDx Manitoba speaker in 2012 and host/emcee in 2013. She speaks on the topics of laughter, simplicity and being true to your authenticity.

Nick Guerra

With just under a decade into stand-up, Nick Guerra has won over crowds from all walks of life. He has performed all over the US at clubs, colleges and special events and has traveled overseas to perform for the US military. His style balances all topics. Current events, relationship humor, and personal stories have become his arsenal when given a microphone. Many times, the crowds never know what to expect with Nick but were rarely disappointed. Nick was an audience favorite on NBC's Last Comic Standing (Season 8). He was a writer, assistant director, and actor and story producer for the Mun 2 reality show Pitbull's La Esquina (Second Season), performed on Comedy Central's Gabriel Iglesias Stand-Up Revolution (second season) and Nuvo TV's Stand Up & Deliver (second season) and Stand Up & Deliver Cabo Relief Special.
