We take immense pride in being an active participant in the growth of the comedy community in the great white North. As a veteran comedian, I've noticed that the 'major cities' are well serviced in both comedy clubs and weekly venues, but the less population dense towns tend to be ignored. Yet those people wish to laugh as well. Our goal is to supply what is lacking. Hence the philosophy of #WEOWNTHENORTH being born.
Comedy for me is also a business. And I've always thought that you don't just want to sit and wait to be called upon by promoters or club owners. You can establish far more control over your career by having the ability to build your name, your brand, your reputation and fan base by going out finding venues and bringing your art to the people.
Together with my partner Arianna Pile, we are proud to connect with budding and seasoned comics who train and share that philosophy. This is just the beginning of the #WEOWNTHENORTH movement.
Apart from our specialty one nighters, we also produce a series of ongoing shows in Northern Ontario. The next instalment of which takes place on Saturday November 4th 2017 at The Creative Bean and The Penalty Box, located in Barrie.
The Creative Bean is a locally owned and operated café that serves premium beverages, freshly made
sandwiches, wraps & treats, including Ontario's voted Best Butter Tart ( I can personally testify to it's incredible taste ). Due to it's 7pm start time and the desire to have 'clean' comedy prioritized, it creates a very intimate and relaxed setting for the comedians and patrons alike. This is certainly a gem to experience personally.
The Penalty Box however, is a sports bar. The 9pm start time is targeting a different client. This patron loves their comedy fast, scandalous and gritty. And that's what the pros bring.
All together, it is a great night for comedy with comics seen routinely touring all over Canada. We've also had visitors from across the borders enjoying the night with us. You should too.
Tickets are $10 in advance and seating is limited, so get there and get there early.
