who we are & what we do
We connect you with Canada’s funniest comedians, event hosts & emcees. You will love your experience with us!
At ComedyConnect, we understand that your business goals are much bigger than your corporate event, conference, gala or fundraiser itself - and that you need a talented host, emcee or entertainer! We'll find the perfect comedian for your event to support your goals, while saving your committee and staff members valuable time and energy.
Why work with ComedyConnect?
There's an amazing energy when you're in a room with a talented comedian at the mic, and the audience is laughing, engaged and entertained. We create this experience for our clients time and time again. We’re not just another talent agency. We’re your event partner.
By maintaining close relationships in the industry, we stay up-to-date with exciting new comedians, hot topics and latest trends. We love working with our talented roster, and you will too. There’s nothing we’d rather be doing than helping you find the perfect emcee, host or comedian to command the mic and entertain the guests at your next fundraiser, gala, conference or corporate party. ComedyConnect has the industry contacts to hire comedians quickly and efficiently. As your project partner, we’re working with you to make your event a huge success!
When we collaborate with you for your event, we ask informed questions and listen intently to your vision, goals and expectations to understand the type of comedian and content you need.
This is Our Process...
You can get the ball rolling by telling us about your event, your date, your budget and your audience. Next, we’ll set up a call to answer your questions, review options and clarify expectations.
Then, we’ll introduce you to the funniest comedians who are the best fit and send you a curated list of talent, equipped with fees, travel requirements and availability. When you make your choice, we’ll seal the deal with a contract and arrange everything from travel to payment, soundcheck and AV requirements. We’ll handle the details and keep you informed at every stage.
After that, you simply host a great event with confidence that everyone will love!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I’ve been asked to find a comedian for our corporate or fundraising event. Where do I start?
First, you’ll need a date and approximate budget, then call us, or fill out our “Book a Comedian” form, and we’ll send you a curated list of comedians complete with videos, accreditations and testimonials.
How far in advance should we book?
If you can, you should book at least six months to one year in advance, but the more advanced notice the better. Popular comedians book up fast! If you don’t have much time, don’t worry, we’ll find you someone great.
How much does it cost to book a comedian?
Our comedians have fees ranging from $2,000 - $30,000. Most have some flexibility depending on the requirements and organization. We’re happy to negotiate for you.
I saw a really funny comedian at a comedy club. Would they be a good for our event?
Not all comedians are a great fit for every group. It’s important to know your audience so we can help you find the right balance of squeaky clean and edgy material that everyone will love.
Do all comedians make great hosts and emcees?
Event hosting is a separate skill to stand-up comedy. The job requires high energy, audience engagement, off-the-cuff humour, and excellent timing. There are many talented and experienced event hosts to choose from on our roster
