Courtney Gilmour is a hilarious Toronto-based comedian whose career is skyrocketing! Aside from being the first woman to win the Homegrown Comics Competition at Montreal’s @justforlaughs festival in 19 years, she has also appeared on Kevin Hart’s @lolnetwork, alongside many other achievements. Courtney was born without both hands and one of her legs, and has had to wear a prosthetic leg for her entire life. On the way to a standup comedy gig one night, her leg collapsed under her and she fell down the stairs. Despite still making it to the gig and delivering a hilarious set, she decided it was finally time to get the prosthetic leg she always deserved.
