Canadian comedian Debra DiGiovanni is one of a kind. She´s been called the "Best Comedian to see after a Messy Break Up" and for several years she was named Toronto´s (her home town) favorite comedian. Her first comedy special, Single Awkward Female taped for Showtime is now available on Netflix. Debra´s comedy has a sharp edge while maintaining a playful, happy air and her persona is one of the best developed of any comic working today. Couple that with a hilarious act that is so personal everyone can relate and you see why Debra is so popular; her humour and charm lies in her unflinching honesty and openness.
