BIO

Geri Hall is proud to have gotten her start as a performer at Toronto’s The Second City- in both the touring company and on the Mainstage. She also spent five seasons co-starring as a roving reporter and anchor on the news desk of the long-running CBC hit, This Hour Has 22 Minutes. If you didn’t see her getting handcuffed by the Prime Minister -and staying in character all the while- then her face may be familiar from over thirty television commercials, and many TV and film projects including the Miramax feature Shall We Dance, The Mercer Report, Little Mosque on The Prairie, and The Ron James Show. She is the very proud holder of awards from the Writer’s Guild and the Canadian Comedy Awards, and still glows happily from Gemini nominations for her work on Global’s The Jane Show, as well as a Gemini award for her comedic performances with her fellow cast mates on 22 Minutes. She recently won the honour of Best Actress at the 2017 Valencia Webfest for her starring role in Perverts Anonymous. Watch for her in a very funny improvised scene alongside Hayden Christiansen in the new feature, Little Italy, and in her starring role in the hilarious short film, Full Circle.
