SiriusXM's Top Comic Competition
SiriusXM’s Top Comic competition returns for its ninth annual search for Canada’s best in comedy, offering more prizes than ever before! Auditions will be held in Toronto over three nights and each night 10 of Canada’s greatest comedians bring their a-game as they perform in front of a live audience and panel of industry judges, with the hope of being selected as a semi-finalist. Auditions are hosted by Canadian comic Ben Miner and recorded for broadcast on SiriusXM’s uncensored comedy channel, Canada Laughs (ch. 168).
New this year, the grand prize winner will receive international exposure with a guaranteed spot to perform at JFL Sydney in Australia, in addition to JFL42 (Toronto), JFL NorthWest (Vancouver), Just For Laughs Montreal and inclusion in a JFL TV taping. The Grand Prize winner will also receive $25,000 from SiriusXM; and for the first time in the competition, the two runners-up will also receive cash prizes of $2,500 each. Tickets are $12 and are available for purchase through the venue websites and at the door.
