Hoodo Hersi is a promising Toronto-based comedian, having performed on prestigious shows including The Nubian Disciples of Pryor at Yuk Yuks, The Underground Comedy Railroad Tour (the first all black Canadian comedy tour) and Kosher Jokes for The Haladays (a show bringing Jewish and Muslim comics together). She was also nominated for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund at Second City, taped her first TV comedy special for No Kidding and was a member on the panel for The Inside Joke (both of which aired in 2014 on iChannel). After appearing as a contestant on the E! Channel’s Pop Quiz this fall (and winning), she had the great fortune of opening up for author/comedian Moshe Kasher (‘Conan’, ‘Chelsea Lately’ and ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’), Hari Kondabolou ('Late Show with David Letterman', 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', 'Conan'), Eric Andre ('The Eric Andre Show', 'Conan', '2 Broke Girls') and Matt Braunger ('Comedy Central', 'Conan' and 'Late Show with David Letterman'). Hoodo was a guest on the Ward and Al Show (SiriusXM) and has also performed at the Boston Women in Comedy Festival and Toronto’s Shedot Festival.
