Who Is Katherine Levac? New Details On The Comic From 'Comedians Of The World' On Netflix

Comedians of the World on Netflix features 47 comedians from all over the globe, including places like Germany, the UK, India, and South Africa. And luckily, Netflix provides subtitles for all the 30-minute stand-up sets so English-speaking individuals can understand! So, why not step out of your comfort zone and watch a routine from a French-speaking comedian?

Katherine Levac offers her audience something different, aside from doing stand-up in French. She’s currently touring around Canada and France, but just because you don’t speak her language, that doesn’t mean you can’t reap the benefits of her comedy.

But just who is Katherine Levac? To get a better understanding of her personal life, here are 5 details to know about her.

5. She’s adamant about her favorite animal.

It’s the Canada Lynx, of course. She states on her own website [translated]: 

“This absolutely majestic carnivore feeds mostly on snowshoe hares, like 200 per year. Sorry, hares. He lives in the forests of Canada, Alaska and the northern United States. It is an animal that comes out especially at night; that’s why we never see him at the Biodôme... Canada Lynx is my favorite pet because its huge hairy legs and silvery coat make me want to go after my dreams.”
