YUK YUK'S PRESENTS
Martha Chaves is an award-winning comedian, writer, and actor whose career spans over two decades. Now Magazine described her as "smart, sassy, provocative, and very funny."
Martha has appeared multiple times at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and the We Are Funny That Way Festival, to name a few.
Martha describes herself as the "most famous Nicaraguan-Canadian LGBTQ+ stand-up comedian in the world," but despite being an act of such a unique nature, she’s hilariously relatable, universally funny and accessible.
She tours from coast-to-coast as a headliner for Yuk-Yuks (Canada’s premiere chain of comedy clubs) and is also in high demand for corporate performances, conferences, and speaking engagements.
She can frequently be heard on CBC's The Debaters and Laugh Out Loud. She is a regular panellist on the popular CBC show Because News.
Martha also starred in two TV specials which were broadcast nationally: Comics! on CBC and Something About Martha on CTV and the Comedy Network.
Martha was named 2018's Stand-up Comic of the Year by the Canadian Comedy Awards after being nominated seven years in a row, and her CD CHUNKY SALSA was included in a list of 2019's best comedy records.
During the pandemic, she created a multi-media piece Living 'La Covida Loca, which premiered online at The Hillside Festival. She also created "Beyond the Mask," another multi-media piece that was featured in "Caminos" as part of the Aluna Theatre Festival 2021 program. In 2022, she was asked to perform at the Stratford Festival.
As a playwright, Martha has written and acted in several successful one-woman shows. "Staying Alive" and "In Times of Trouble" were featured in the Soulo Festival and the Aluna Theatre Festival in Toronto, respectively. "The Diaries of a Young Lezbo" premiered at SOLOCOM in New York.
