Martha Chaves

Martha Chaves is a Latin-Canadian-LGBTQ award-winning comedian, actor, activist, and playwright.

With her unique sense of humour, friendly-in-your-face style, and devilish charm, Martha paints hilarious stories drawn heavily from personal experience, like her upbringing in Latin-America. She came to Canada as a refugee, but Martha has established herself as one of the country’s most sought-after comedians.

She’s known throughout Canada for her coast-to-coast stand-up tours and for her tailor-made corporate shows, her many appearances on the Just for Laughs Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The Debaters, and as a regular cast member of the hit CBC show Because News.
