ADRIANNE GAGNON -- Adrianne lives to be happy and wants to help others live to their full, positive output! 11 years ago she took her first improv class at the Second City Training Centre in Toronto, ON and since then, she has never quite looked at life the same. She is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory program and has studied improv at the iO in Chicago. 

Adrianne has travelled North America performing and teaching with her three-woman improv troupe, We’re From Here. Adrianne is the founder and Artistic Director of the Big City Improv Festival, which is Canada’s largest improv festival and has been going strong for 6 years. 

Adrianne is also the founder of Mission Critical Comedy, a Halifax-based company dedicated to bringing the positive influence and (IHO) life-changing concept of improv to her peers in the Maritimes! Follow Mission Critical Comedy on Facebook for details.

Recently, Adrianne wrote and toured a one-woman comedy called Operation 87; a hilarious collection of stories about unrequited love, growing up as an awkward redhead, and how to get Sidney Crosby to marry her!
