She is the creator and producer of the Montreal comedy show GET FXCKED. She is also the co-producer of Comedy on Demand (formally known as Lawn Laughs). If that isn't enough she has a new podcast called House of Stone (as seen at Gigglefest, Ladyfest, and Just for Laughs) and A Horrific Evening Podcast.

Morgan O'Shea (Comedy)
Naghmeh is an Iranian-Canadian singer/songwriter, poet, and community organizer. She began performing as a solo artist in 2016 while living in San Francisco and decided to abandon the corporate grind to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Naghmeh jumped head first into the world of rock ‘n roll and set off on the road over the following year with performances across Europe and South America. She moved back to Tiohtià:ke/Montreal to pursue music and record an album, which she released in 2019 under the name Naghmeh and the Southern Shores. Her sound is authentic in its delivery and blends different eras of music into a punky, alternative, pop rock. With throaty melodies, satirical lyrics and a touch of triumphant rock n' roll, Naghmeh's goal is to transform the listener’s internal turmoil into a healing, whimsical dance.
