It took 60 years for Leaside resident Cathy Boyd to find her true calling. Born in Maine, this mother of four and grandmother of six relocated to Leaside with her second husband in 2010. Following a period of unsuccessful job searches, Cathy decided to follow her passion for writing by taking courses at Toronto’s famed Second City. It did not take long for writing to turn into comedy.
In January 2016 at age 61, Cathy took to the stage for the first time. Since then, she has been honing her craft doing shows in Montreal, Maine and lots of clubs right here in Toronto.
On March 2nd, Cathy is producing and will be headlining a free, multi-comic show right here in Leaside at Originals at 1660 Bayview Ave.
Comedy is often seen as a younger person’s game, but Cathy reminds us that at 63, she has a lot of experience to draw on. She also likes to remind her husband that she and Christie Brinkley are the same age. For more information, check out her Facebook page, The Wrath of Cathy.
