Born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Lisa developed a sharp wit and sense of humor that Newfoundlanders are known for. After starting a stand-up career on the island, she moved to Alberta, and has been keeping audiences in stitches ever since. Lisa was the 2016 winner of The Comic Strip's Funniest Person with a Day Job, and has worked with Rob Schneider, Tom Green, Dave Coulier, and Paul Reiser. She has been featured on both CBC's LOL and The Debaters, and at the the YYComedy Festival and Just for Laughs Northwest. Lisa's material draws from her own daily life and has resulted in an eclectic collection of jokes that resonate with audiences all throughout Canada.
Had so much fun working with Lisa. Rocked all the rooms on my island tour and can hardly wait to have her back.
Funny as heck sweet as pie what more do you want by' . If you ever get a chance to see this REAL woman perform do it its good for the sole. I'd see her 100 times if she move back to newfoundland. Keep it up Baker!!
I have been a long time fan of Lisa... since her very first show! She has grown as a comedian so much but one thing that didn’t change is how relatable she is. Not only she is funny as hell to the point you have to pee but you can sit back and say “omg I can see that happening or ugh I know someone like that too”
Lisa, you make us all proud to be from Newfoundland and I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes you next!
Highly recommend booking her for any type of group as she is funny from everyone from her peers to grandmas!
Lisa Baker rocks.. If you haven't had the privilege to be at one of her shows, you are certainly missing out. Laugh until your belly hurts or pee in your pants, maybe both.
Recently saw Lisa at the Grindstone Comedy Festival, I was openly embarrassed by how hard I laughed. I was lucky enough to have chosen a longer shirt for the evening, as a more-than-dribble amount of urine squeaked out. She's a hard hitting, tell-it-like-it-is laugh riot! If you like well-written, edgy comedy with a heaping helping of hilarity you have to go see her. I was able to meet her after the show and she's cool as hell too!
I have seen Lisa Baker as host and headliner of many shows - I fell in love with her brand of comedy on the first night I saw her at least 4 years ago. She continues to make me laugh uproariously each and every outing with her brand of comedy.
I have known Lisa for a while now and on a daily basis she makes me laugh. I went to one of her shows with Mike Lynch and she was hilarious. She does not disappoint.
We had Lisa at Mad Hatter Comedy Club and not only did she pack my venue but she had both our early show and late show in stitches . Can not wait to have her back later this year!!! One of my Favorite Canadian Female comics hands down!!!
In school even though she was a little older than me I always found myself trying to beat it down between my classes to make it down by the drama club just to watch her crazy a$$ in action. She was always hilarious... She was just as much of an entertainer back then as she is today... just much, much better of course. LOL... her amazing talent, her raw humour coupled with her amazing people person skills she will have your party or group of friends roaring laughing in no time... ya won't be disappointed. Not one bit. Well worth every penny including the very large generous donations/tips you'll leave her at the end of the show!!! haha!! you rock baker ✌✌✌✌💙
I love Big Bang Theory. It's my favourite show. I love it.
Lisa made me laugh harder than Big Bang Theory.
I booked Lisa at my bar, and she left the whole audience in stitches.
I highly recommend booking her, she is hilarious.
So funny. You wont be disappointed!
Hilarious comedian! with no boundaries, loved by all newfies except Fred's side of the family! And I'm pretty sure mike lynch skeety character is modeled off her brother!
I saw Lisa at a staff Christmas Party 4 years ago. Lisa was just as funny then as she is now. In fact she gets better and better. I've been stalking her since. I'm a fan for sure. ❤❤
Love love love Lisa!!!!
Quick and witty Lisa will with out a doubt not disappoint. I have been to several comedy shows and she is one is the most real people I have ever seen. Taking the realism of life and says the things that we are all thinking and delivers them in a way that will make you so hard it brings tears to your eyes.
Lisa was hilarious! She is excellent at finding the humour in all situations and is tremendous when interacting with her crowd before, during and after the show. I will always go out of my way to see her
Lisa has an incredible stage presence, and has the crowd engaged and leaning in for more within seconds. She is fun and sharp, her jokes are raw and honest. She is professional, hard-working and you will always want to hire her again.
Lisa is a juggernaut of laughs. I've seen her perform a number of times and she is incredibly hilarious.
We hired Lisa for a recent Golf Tournament and she was incredible. We had arranged to have her play in the golf tournament to allow her to meet and learn about our employees. She was discreet and affable but save the joking for the show later that night. When she was announced to the crowd there was a gasp as they recognized her from the day earlier. She proceeded to use her wit, wisdom and new knowledge of our employees to bring the house down. We would hire again but the cover is blown...but if we go to a local comedy club we will ask for Lisa.
Thanks again for the laughs

1 of a kind!
And from the East so you know you're gonna get it all from her!! Lol
As a comedian she is going to joke about everything and everything. Don't take it seriously like the one person on this site did. Most comedians jokes are based on past experiences. They have gone through shit times like the rest of it.
Lisa is awesome.
I saw lisa for the first time last year and cannot wait until she returns to perform another show.
Some of the best jokes I've heard. Jokes about anything and everything!
If you have a chance go and support and see lisa, you will not regret it at all!
Tonight was the very first time hearing Lisa. When you make fun of Any Type of illness that terminal and taking treatments isn’t a laughing matter.
I watched my 22 year old son pass away from cancer. It's Not A Laughing Matter.
Response from Lisa Baker:
I'm very sorry about your son. Sincerely. That's a terrible, terrible loss that no mother should experience.
I will, however, like to tell you something. My comedy is the result of a lot of life experience. Some good, some not so good. My way of coping with these things is to write jokes. Not all my jokes will be for everyone. I know that. But at the end of the day, you don't get to decide what is or isn't offensive. What bothers you won't bother others. What bothers the next person may not bother you. If I - or anyone else on a public platform - starts catering to every possible way to offend someone, we would all have to be quiet. Further, you have reduced everything I am as a person to one joke I tell about my ex-husband. That's a little unfair.
I don't know how long it's been since you lost your son but I know it doesn't stop hurting. But your pain right now is misdirected, and that's ok; I've had much worse said to me.
You take care.
