ALUMNA: ALIYA KANANI

Adam Fawns/ May 16, 2017/ Alumni

Aliya’s bag of comedy tricks includes standup, sketch and improv. She was super excited to join the CookieBiscuits team after they practically begged her to be part of it…seriously, it was embarrassing (no, she did not write this bio herself and would never try and manipulate a situation to make herself feel validated, how dare you sir!). Needless to say,

ERIK HELLE

Adam Fawns/ May 16, 2017/ Team

Erik isn’t funny, he just pretends to be. He is opinionated, long winded and sarcastic. Speaking with him is a tumultuous task. His arrogance knows no bounds as it infects even the most pious of auras. His accomplishments are well documented and often the subject of his own conversations. There is no parallel to his pomposity. His greatest strength is

Dear America, Why I Won’t ‘Unfriend’ You.

Charlie Whalley/ November 9, 2016/ Articles

  Right now it must feel like the entire world is either yelling or laughing at you… Or some weird combination of both. It’s hard, and I’m sorry if this was not the outcome you had hoped when you voted in your election. Equally, if you did vote for Trump and are celebrating, I’m not here to judge you for

Toronto man committed as time-traveller after using “olden-day conversation” instead of sending a dick-pic   A Toronto woman contacted authorities on Monday after a man sent her Tinder messages comprising entirely of unsolicited sentences, instead of the customary photo of a dick.  The woman, a UofT post-grad, was trying to remain strong while visibly shaken;  “It was disgusting.  There was

His and Her Sex Moves for the Overly (and heinously) Adventurous     We’ve all heard about these horrific sex moves created to tickle the funny bones of the inner teenage boy in all of us.

KIM’S TITTIES

Can we please calm our tits about Kim Kardashian’s tits?   I’m not going to lie, I haven’t actually read a full article, followed all the tweets or seen the original photo of Mrs West baring her breasts. However, I still have an opinion on this very polarising matter: of pretty much no opinion- at least on Kim’s two cans.

They say never meet your heroes. But if your hero is Colin Mochrie – best known as a legendary veteran of the improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? – do whatever you can to meet him. Last Tuesday I did just that and got to perform with him. My experience was 2 minutes that I I’ll remember for a very

Andrew is the 6th funniest member of Cookie Biscuits. He also knows how to use a camera, so we keep him around for that. I swear to god though, if he pitches ONE MORE rehash of a late 90’s Saturday Night Live sketch he’s out of the group. You’re on thin ice, camera guy.
