Canadian actress Emma Hunter is certainly part of the new wave of comediennes with the knack for delighting audiences. She stars in “3-Way (Not Calling)” which has been billed as one of the top 25 shorts at this year’s TIFF. Emma plays Mel who on her birthday coaxes her boyfriend into having a threesome. But things don’t go as planned as the pair try to spice things up in the bedroom with the introduction of a cute barista in their sexual experimentation. Emma has already earned praises for being the comedic lynchpin from reviewers as she balances the stoic and endearing facets of Mel. As a fast rising comedienne, Emma has a vivacity reminiscent of “Doctor Who” starlet Jenna Coleman. In “3-Way (Not Calling)”, she’s authentically likeable in spite of the awkwardness her character Mel and her boyfriend have knowingly plunged into.
As a stand-up comedienne, she’s first-rate having done skits on celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Paula Deen, Victoria Beckham, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sofía Vergara, Kristin Stewart and many more. Her mastery of accents is bewildering and affirms her chameleon-like flair for humorous-filled celebrity impressions. She also helms the satirical news web series “The Beaverton” which has been called sharp and addictive. With Comedy Network announcing the debut of “The Beaverton” in November 2016, Emma may well be one of the premier comics to grace the world.
