BETTER late than never. Canadian comedian Debra DiGiovanni will bring her latest offering, The Late Bloomer Tour, across Canada on a 21-date tour that stops at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre on Jan. 29. Tickets are $35 plus fees at Ticketmaster and go on sale Monday, Oct. 21, at 10 a.m.

Since arriving on the comedy scene in 2000, DiGiovanni has made major waves with her laugh-until-you cry observational tales of life as a single awkward female (she was hailed as "the best comedian to see after a messy breakup," after all).

The Just For Laughs veteran is currently a featured panelist on the Comedy Network’s Match Game and a regular guest on CBC Radio’s The Debaters, her contributions to the latter earning her a Canadian Comedy Award nod for writing on the show.

You may also know her from her deft pop culture-skewering on MuchMusic’s Video On Trial or as a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

DiGiovanni has two Comedy Now! specials under her fabulous belt. Her first American special, Single Awkward Female, was released on Showtime last year.
