The first-ever unified voice for stand-up comedians in Canada has been established. I’m proud to support the creation of success for comedians and the comedy industry. The first initiative is to get the federal government to officially recognize stand-up comedy as an art form in Canada. Why? This will enable stand-up comedians to get equal access to the millions of dollars of arts funding in Canada.
