"The Grande Dame of Canadian Comedy is without a doubt – Martha Chaves. Her wit is infectious; her style is delightful and when you work with her – you are assured professionalism. Martha has always made me laugh out loud, and she is a genuine asset to Canadian comedy" ~Tracy Rideout, Producer CBC Radio - Laugh Out Loud
