Bette 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 fifteen years.
Bette has been called “the Queen of Comedy” in the Halifax Chronicle Herald after she won raves for her performance with Symphony Nova Scotia. Her characters, her wit, and her fine singing voice brought the sold-out concert house to its feet. Bette toured with the Symphony in 2006.
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 had guest appearances on many popular Canadian television shows. She has also guest hosted for several segments of CBC Radio’s Madly Off in All Directions.
She has appeared at the popular CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival and has been a long-time favorite headliner at the Ha!ifax Comedy Fest.
Bette is presently at work on a new book and is preparing a new stage show.
