Avery Edison is a comedian who lives in the United Kingdom. She's also a transgendered woman who made headlines after she was recently sent to a men's jail in Ontario.
She was sent there after flying to Toronto and was stopped at the airport over an immigration issue.
Edison spent some time on my show this afternoon and explained how terrified she was when she was told she was being sent to a men's facility. She was eventually transfered to a detention centre for women before being released.
Edison has since flown back home. And she has plenty of new material for her comedy act.
