Julia Bruce received a theatre degree from Simon Fraser University and then worked for a year as a "serious" actor, director and writer. However, she quickly realized that her true passion and talent lay with comedy (not in a sexual way). So, she moved to Toronto where she completed the Post Graduate Comedy program at Humber College (oh, and she won the Phil Hartman Award, which is given to the top student, fancy!).
In February 2006 she beat out 1300 people to be featured in the Comedy Network's Corner Gas Comic Genius contest and was featured in the August issue of Chatelaine magazine as one of Canada's prominent female comedic talents. She has also appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing and CBC's The Second City's Next Comedy Legend.
Julia now works for Yuk Yuk's performing (and sometimes shocking) people all over Canada. For such a wholesome face, and fabulous clothes, she really has quite the mouth on her...
Julia is also a professional actor with ACTRA who can be seen in numerous television commercials; and recently in the pilot episode of the new CBC series Workin' Moms!
Finally, Julia is a writer who has written an original sitcom and is currently working on a dramatic film. She has also written numerous blog articles on LinkedIn about working in retail (it's more interesting than it sounds!).
Thanks for stopping by, said the person who wrote this, who musn't be Julia or else why would she talk about herself in third person?!
... okay this is Julia. You got me!
