Emily Seymour was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She was introduced to comedy at an early age which inspired an immediate passion and hunger to achieve a career in comedy. Growing up, Emily would go to school and imitate comedians such as Jim Carry and early Adam Sandler. She was motivated to include humour and comedy in her everyday life. In 2013 she went back to school for Theatre Performance and Creation. Emily was then driven to apply for Second City in Chicago. She was accepted and spent a full month learning everything she could from the instructors at the college. Once arrived home, she has written three sketch comedy shows and has gone on to create her own entertainment company under the name Seymour Entertainment and joined her favourite Alberta comedy troupe Bull Skit Comedy.
