    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Sophie Buddle is on a roll. After landing a gig writing for This Hour Has 22 Minutes, the Vancouver-based comic keeps making more money moves. This will be a summer filled with a tour, a comedy album release, and a brand new podcast.

      If you haven’t seen Buddle at comedy festivals like JFL NorthWest, or on JFL’s TV series, All Access, or CBC's The Debaters then you’ll get a chance to enjoy her comedy anywhere you want. Her release A Lil Bit of Buddle, an album that will be filled with jokes about spies, intrigue, and getting fingered in the forest will be released on May 15 on iTunes and all other streaming services.

      Her album was recorded at the now closed Comedy Mix which was home to many album recordings over the past few years like Ivan Decker’s I Wanted to Be Dinosaur, Kevin Banner’s DreamboatYumi Nagashima’s My Name is YumiGavin Matts Premature, albums which—along with Buddle's—were produced by the Quincy Jones of comedy albums, Kevvy.

      A Lil Bit of Buddle comes out just as she embarks on a cross-Canada tour, where she’ll be hitting up Heckler’s in Victoria from May 17-18, then over to Ottawa and Toronto, then back for her first time headlining Yuk Yuk’s Vancouver on June 28-29.

      Buddle’s freshly released podcast Obsessed is co-hosted by her boyfriend and Juno nominated comedian, Mayce Galoni. On the podcast, Buddle and Galoni interview guests about their obsessions, from Beyoncé to American politics and everything in between. The podcast is available on Itunes, Google Play, and Spotify.

      To top it off, Buddle isn’t just taking the ground by force, if you’re flying Air Canada you can pass the time by watching her JFL All Access set.

      Catch Buddle on June 28 and 29 at at Yuk Yuk’s ( 2837 Cambie St) and check out the album here.
