Who is Lindsay Ellis?
Hello! I’m Lindsay Ellis
A Toronto based comedy writer, performer, and producer who made Ricky Gervais laugh when they met.
I co-wrote the web series Clambake. The series follows three girls over the course of one evening where their friendship is tested. With Haven Theatre, I produced Plum Crazy, as part of the 2019 Toronto Fringe Festival where I also starred as Denise and was story editor bringing the play to fit into our under 60-minute category.
I have an MSc, an MBA, and recently got my Mrs. because I likes to collect letters around my name so I can humble brag about how smart and lovable I am.
