The Canadian Association of Stand-up Comedians is very excited to announce their first national event. We’re holding a Stand-up Awareness Week from September 9th to 15th 2018 all across the country.
Our goal is to create a thriving and dynamic stand-up industry that celebrates diverse voices, both aspiring and legendary. We are incredibly proud of Canada’s rich comedy legacy and are committed to expanding on that success.
We held our first stand-up marathon in Toronto in June and it was an incredible success. We want to continue to build the momentum and awareness about what we’re up to and raise funds for CASC.
We are asking comedy producers across the country to support our cause and donate your funds earned during this week by your events to CASC.
If you currently produce a show or want to create something during that week, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the form below.
One of the fun events we’re planning is a Comedy Fashion show. Comedians will model local designer fashions and then do a stand-up set at the end of the runway. The reason this is happening is that the fashion industry faces the same issues as the stand-up industry. They do not receive any funding and many fashion advocates have been tirelessly working over the last couple of decades to have that changed. So if you have an idea for something fun and interesting, we’d love to hear about it.
If you cannot participate, you can check out this post to see how you can support CASC.
Thank you for your time.
Jo from CASC
