The Montreal Comedy Competition is calling on all Montreal-based, and comedians from all over Canada. with 1 to 3 years of stage experience to submit their application for consideration for the upcoming production of this event in the Fall of 2015. You can submit your application today.

The first edition of Montreal Comedy Competition was produced by Ali M. (@AliMoComedy) on March 15, 2009 at the Old ComedyWorks in down-town Montreal.

The idea first flourished to bring about a home-grown comedy competition to the Montreal scene in order to put the spotlight on talented Comedians, in and outside of Montreal, with 6 months to 3 years of stage experience. Many Comedians nominated themselves for the first competition with only ten names drawn to compete. A panel of three judges were present in order to score the participants based on pre-defined categories such as material, creativity, stage presence, audience reaction and over-all style.

The first winner of this competition was Fasail Butt. Drawing on his Pakistani-Muslim roots, Faisal has been able to appeal to a variety of audiences both young and old. He has since opened for some of Canada’s best comics including David Pryde, Sugar Sammy, Massimo and John Dore. Other winners in no special order were Nick Brazao, Eddy King, Eman, Darren Henwood, Emery Fine, Gino Durante, Scott Andrew Carter, Jakub Stachurski & Tranna Wintour . You’ll definitely see one of our winners at one of Montreal’s Comedy Clubs.

The ninth edition of MCC was produced at the Old Comedy Works on June 8, 2014, just less than 10 days before the old ComedyWorks closed its doors. The winner of that competition was Jakub Startuski who received the first prize and a weekend spot the old Montreal ComedyWorks. The latest winner of the Montreal Comedy Competition was Tranna Wintour. The show was performed at Yuk Yuk’s comedy club in Montreal.

If you are a comedian with 1 to 3 years of stage experience, you may submit your application below.
