Riffing with Scott the Intern: It’s Time! It’s Time! It’s Top Comic Time!

Top Comic

There’s a buzz around the office and it’s flowing into comedy shows all across the country.

SiriusXM and Canada Laughs are back for another year of Top Comic and we are bringing a lineup teeming with hilarity and raw talent. Everyone on these upcoming shows are major players in Canadian comedy and they come from all over the country.

After pouring over auditions from Victoria Island all the way to the Bay of Fundy, we have selected 60 comics that are reaching new heights of comedy, hilarity and entertainment.

Every show is jam packed comedians boasting credits such as Netflix specials, Conan O’Brian appearances, Just for Laughs Homegrown winners, gala performers, and comics who’s albums have reigned as number 1 on itunes charts!

This year’s entries are coming from every corner of the Canadian landscape. The Top Comic audience can expect to laugh with hysterics while they learn about the diverse makeup of Canada and that our Canadian sense of humour truly unites us.

You can check out any of these amazing acts at one of our six preliminary rounds happening between May 29th and June 7th in either Vancouver or Toronto.

But after all the giggle battles, the top eight are coming to Toronto to perform at the international festival JFL 42, this September.

The winner takes home $25,000 and a host of other amazing opportunities. Solo shows at JFL 42 and JFL Northwest 2017, a televised performance at Just for Laughs 2017 and an appearance on The Comedy Network’s JFL: All Access, are all on the line.

Both runner ups are also grabbing TV spots at Just for Laughs Montreal 2017, and a co-headlining show at JFL 42 2017.

With 60 top acts pushing themselves harder than ever before, on the biggest stages in the country, Top Comic is a ticket you don’t want to miss out on.
