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 was one of the 42 at Toronto’s JFL42 festival two years in a row with her own run of headlining shows and in April 2019 she wrapped a hugely successful tour as part of the Just For Laughs Roadshow. She returned once again to Montreal for another round of Just For Laughs shows including a televised performance on The Howie Mandel Gala airing on The CW Network.
