Canada’s Comedy Insider” – The Scene Magazine

Aside from producing monthly sold-out shows, Comedy Uncovered also presents single-run shows featuring international comics such as Joe Derosa (Better Call Saul, Comedy Central), and Orlando Jones (MadTV, Sleepy Hollow), at Toronto’s Comedy Bar and other select venues. Our regular live showcases have been part of NXNE, The Dark Comedy Festival, and have featured international headliners such as Big Jay Oakerson (Louie, Comedy Central: Presents), Robert ‘Bobby’ Kelly (Louie, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn), and national favorites like Sean Cullen (The Sean Cullen Show), Mark Forward (The Jon Dore Show, Mr. D.), Adam Growe (Cash Cab), Chris Locke (MTV, Just For Laughs), and many more.

Comedy Uncovered is consistently the official selection for media coverage of Canada’s largest comedy festivals. We completed ramp-up, social media, and comedy coverage at Montreal’s Just For Laughs (2015), JFL42 (2014), NXNE, the Dark Comedy Fest, Big City Improv Festival, Cottage Country Comedy Festival, Impulse Improv Festival, and more. Independently sourced, scheduled, and coordinated teams of writers and photographers, as well as curated, compiled, edited and promoted content.

Comedy Uncovered has even cast and helped produce an award-winning comedy short. We’ve covered festivals, aided in the casting process for TV, and raised money for charity.
