About the Author...

0-2-BetteMacDonald-Mr-D-8aa5e58117Bette MacDonald, Gemini Award winner for her CBC TV performance in the Ha!ifax Comedy Fest, has been making Canadians laugh on TV, radio and stage for over twenty years.

The Halifax’s Chronicle Herald called her “a superlative actress, a polished ad libber… making the audience howl with delight by a lift of her eyebrows,  a shift of elbow or a single word”   following her ground-breaking performance poking gentle fun at the lighter side of the classical world with Symphony Nova Scotia in 2006.  In a rare move, the Symphony brought  the show back by popular demand the following year for another sold-out performance.

Bette has starred in three national CBC TV series including her role as Canada’s most unsuitable Governor General in Rideau Hall.  She has also guested on many popular Canadian television shows and has guest hosted for several segments of CBC Radio’s popular Madly Off in All Directions.  She has had starring roles at Neptune Theatre and toured nationally with the Cape Breton Summertime Revue sketch comedy troupe.

Bette has  co-hosted the ECMA awards show, appeared at the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival and was a long-time favourite headliner at the Ha!ifax Comedy Fest.

For the past decade Bette has been collaborating with husband/comedian Maynard Morrison for a side-splitting Christmas show Tis The Season, which toured the Maritimes.  One critic said of the show:  “absolutely brilliant”  “people howled with laughter and took off their glasses to wipe tears from their eyes”. The couple are back for the 2016 festive season with an all new show full of their hilarious brand of Cape Breton humour and marvelous music too.
