The Return of Red Carpet Comedy
In September 2009, Red Carpet Comedy began bringing together Calgary’s professional stand-up comedians once a month with one purpose: to try out and show off their brand new, never-before-heard material. The show ran for seven seasons and a total 64 shows. Countless hours of new comedy were created. New bits went on to be featured in comedy clubs, heard on the radio and seen on television.
Before the start of our eighth season the show had to go on hiatus as a new venue was found. We’re very pleased to announce that with a new performance place secured we’re returning for what we’re calling Season 7.5. Our debut show on May 31 was a success and we’ll be back on June 28.
