“A Day in the Life” with local Calgary artist Brittany Lyseng

Brittany Lyseng is a nationally touring stand-up comedian. She can be heard on CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud, Sirius XM and seen on Kevin Hart’s LOL network. Brittany’s down-to-earth view of the world is capturing audiences across Canada and has earned her a place at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, JFL Northwest in Vancouver as well as multiple appearances at her hometown YYCOMEDY festival in Calgary, Alberta. Brittany’s humble beginnings as tradesmen are apparent in her unique delivery and a one-of-a-kind view of the world. Brittany placed among the top 8 comedians in Canada after competing in the finals in the 2018  SiriusXM’s Next Top Comic at Toronto’s JFL42.

Like I said... I am always on the road. Being a Canadian comedian means a lot of 10 hour drives in sketchy conditions.

Playing hockey with a group of Calgary comics. Lots of laughs and the reminder that I am on not in the game shape I used to be

I am always on the road doing comedy ... I try to take advantage of the scenery in each town and write a little every chance I get . Coffee and a view of the Okanogan on this particular day in the beautiful Penticton British Columbia

Dinner with my best friends. We've been friends for over 20 years and span the United States and Canada. We are made up of doctors, engineers, artists medical professionals human resources specialists, oil and gas workers and professional comedians. There are few occasions when we are all in the same city. It is always insanely funny and never long enough.
