8.      i’m a new comic.  how can I get a spot on the show?

  • Occasionally, there is  a “newcomer” spot on the show. 
  • Generally speaking - in order to get a "newcomer" spot, the producer needs to see your performance somehow to see if your style and material is right for the show. 
  • The best way to be offered a spot on the show, is for the producer to see you perform at one of the comedy stages in or around Calgary.  Be sure to introduce yourself!
  • You may message FB tinycomedyshow once.  Subsequent contact is not appreciated.

9.      i’m an out-of-town comic.   may I have a spot?

  • If the producer has seen you perform before, you'll be offered a spot when one is available for you. No need to check  in. 
  • If you are touring and planning a visit many months in the future and the producer has seen you before, you may check in to see what's available.  The show is booked well in advance so a lot of lead time is needed. 

10.  i’m an established performer visting Calgary on a show date.  may I book a HL or MC or Feature spot?

  • The main spots ( HL, MC, Feature ) are pre-booked months in advance. 
  • If you are planning a visit to the Calgary or Edmonton area well in advance, you may check in to see if anything is available.
