Nearly every comic has to juggle other commitments, but Chevannes has more than most. She’s a mother to two active children, and her day job is an ‘all sorts of hours’ position as a nurse. But she still juggles it all with a busy stand-up schedule. She’s a regular on Kenny Robinson’s Nubian Comedy show, on the Yuk Yuk’s circuit, and beyond. She recently performed several nights on the Canuck Cabaret at the New York Frigid Festival and in LA. “I’m performing all the time around the GTA,” she says, “After the kids soccer practices.” Chevannes makes her other responsibilities part of her comedy routine. Her set is full of colourful references, and a few off-colour ones, from parenting to other day-to-day events. She’s one of the most exuberant and cheerful stand-ups working in the city. She can turn a whole show around by kicking up the energy in the room.
