Comedy Uncovered is Canada’s first online comedy industry magazine. Known for its credible and comprehensive content as well as formidable live shows, Comedy Uncovered is a resource for both comedians and fans to promote, develop and showcase the Canadian comedy scene. Through live shows, articles, industry workshops, interviews, videos, listings and more, Comedy Uncovered has promoted the Canadian scene to the general public with over 200,000 page views and 3000 tickets sold since 2013 launch. Based out of Toronto, Canada’s comedy hub, Comedy Uncovered is the comedy through-line for improv, stand up, sketch and beyond.
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.
