Courtney Gilmour is a JUNO nominated stand up comedian, television writer, and finalist on Canada’s Got Talent. She is one of Canada's most unique voices and sought after comedy talents, named by NOW Magazine as “one of the top 10 stage artists to watch”. She delivered a breakout performance at the 2017 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal by winning the Homegrown Comics Competition and filming a set for Kevin Hart's LOL Network. Courtney's victory at the 2017 Just For Laughs Homegrown was the first by a female comic in the 19 year history of the event. In 2018 she topped it with televised performances at CBC’s Winnipeg and Halifax comedy festivals, as well as a triumphant return to Montreal to tape a set for The Comedy Network at Just for Laughs. 

Courtney is a regular at the Just For Laughs festival with multiple headlining shows at Just For Laughs Toronto, a filmed TV set for CBC’s New Wave of Stand Up in Vancouver, and many appearances at the JFL flagship festival in Montreal including a televised performance on The Howie Mandel All Stars Gala airing on The CW Network. 
Her solo Fringe show “‘Congratulations!’ Stories of Achievement, Embarrassment, & Self-Worth” debuted at the Toronto Fringe Festival in summer 2019 and was met with sold out shows as well as multiple awards including Best of Fringe and Patrons’ Pick, earning her three extra performance runs and acceptance into the Brighton Fringe Festival in the UK.

She has written for and made appearances on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, CBC’s The Debaters, Space Dragon & Kim, and CBC’S Humour Resources alongside Jon Dore and Sarah Silverman, and most recently she can be seen on two episodes of  CTV Comedy’s Roast Battle Canada. In 2022 Courtney competed in the second season of Canada’s Got Talent, during her semi-finals performance she got the judges’ vote to go straight to the finals as one of the top 8. You can catch her touring around the country with Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs and heard regularly on SiriusXM and CBC LOL.

Her debut stand up album “Let Me Hold Your Baby” was released under Comedy Records in 2022 and was nominated for a JUNO award in 2023 for Comedy Album Of The Year. Courtney’s warm, accessible, and intelligent brand of stand up has made her a hit with audiences nationwide.
As of 2024, Courtney is slated to join the voice cast of Lakeside Animation’s new adult animated series “Paralegal” alongside Kids In The Hall’s Kevin McDonald and Bruce McCulloch.
