About

Luba Magnus is a comedian, writer, director, animator, and just wants to be outside.

Known for her stand-up comedy, as well as her animation work and comedic films, Luba has 15 years of experience in a wide array of roles in the industry. She has animated for children’s television (Peg + Cat, CBC Kids), directed music videos (Crooked City Studios), and even created motion graphics for an episode of Sesame Street. Luba’s own original comedic videos which she writes and directs have been seen on Funny or Die, The Animation Blog, and won the 2021 Toronto Sketch Festival’s “Outstanding Comedy Short” award.

Her debut stand-up album “Baba Luba” received critical acclaim: NPR’s Bullseye With Jesse Thorn included it in their 2022 Stand-Up Comedy Spectacular, amongst renowned acts such as Tig Notaro, Roy Wood Jr., and Jen Kirkman, describing it as “enthusiastic, warm, and weird” and “one of the rare stand-up comedy acts that features botany… heavily!” Paste Magazine listed it #10 in their Best Comedy Albums of 2022, describing it as “equal parts clever and nonsensical with her creative wordplay”.

She now owns and runs “Laughadil Productions Inc”, a media production company with a heavy focus on comedic and nature-based content, be it live-action or animation. The company is currently producing a docu-series for Bell Fibe TV1.

With her eclectic approach to comedy and content creation, as well as her passion for helping people laugh and learn, Luba Magnus is sure to delight.
