The Canadian Association of Stand-up Comedy

Business / Partners/Alliances

It’s a place where we can be serious about the business of being funny.

The primary goal of The Association is to create and build upon opportunities for success for Canadian stand-up comedians. The first initiative is elevating stand-up comedy to a recognized art form in Canada. This helps make our work eligible for government funding at all levels.

As a Member, stand-up comedians will directly benefit from actions taken by The Association. We are committed to facilitating greater access for Canadian comics to share their craft and improve their Canadian perspective on the world both domestically and internationally.

If you would like to get involved with any of the current initiatives or Committees, or if you have an idea for an initiative or Committee, please contact us at
