National Comic Search Coming to Winnipeg

August 9, 2011 8:00 AM | Entertainment

Get your best zingers and one-liners ready, you could be Canada’s best new comic.

SiriusXM Canada is touring the country this fall as part of its third annual Canada’s Next Top Comic contest.

“Canada has many funny comedians working hard to get discovered, but landing that first big break is tough and that is why this year SiriusXM is travelling to eight major cities across the country to find the best comedic talent,” said Jeff Leake, Programming Director of SiriusXM Canada and former on-air personality at Hot 103. “Each year we build on the success of the previous one and grow this contest because we are committed to cultivating unique Canadian entertainment content, supporting the vibrant Canadian comedy community and providing our listeners with the emerging Canadian content they have come to expect from us.”

Auditions will hit Winnipeg Tuesday, September 20 at Rumor’s Comedy Club

Canadians can follow the comedy conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #TopComic.

The winner will win $10,000 cash, which will be awarded at a gala event on November 14 in Toronto.
