CELEBRATING COMEDY THROUGH COMMUNITY.
Montrealers love to laugh – it is embedded in our culture. Whether it be in French or English, our sense of humor and appreciation for art – in all of its forms – is a hallmark of how people know us and why they love us.
THE PROBLEM, AT A GLANCE
•In Montreal, the English Comedy Scene is underrepresented. We love our french counterpart and they support us as best as they can, but the reach is simply not the same.
•Close to 100% of the English Comedy Scene is run by independent producers- individuals who take financial risks to provide spaces for artists to thrive. As a result, English artists must often leave the city to get recognition or pursue comedy as a full-time career. This drives local talent away from Montreal and thus perpetuates the issue of underrepresentation.
GiggleFest features amateur and professional comedians from Montreal who have performed internationally with incredible credits.
With a combined reach of over 700K followers, the potential for brand exposure is significant.
Each festival day houses the potential for 500+ audience members to make their way through one of our 26 shows and 3 venue spaces. Sponsors can expect active interaction with their products and services.
