Red Fedora Comedy is the funny bone of The Mob’s Press. This means we have the marketing, ticketing and promotional power of The Mob combined with the knowledge and experience of our team to make Red Fedora Comedy Canada’s #1 comedy brand. Not for audiences, but for comedians themselves.
Red Fedora Comedy was created to give comedians a brand they can trust, love and support. Just like The Mob’s Press, Red Fedora Comedy wants to change the way business is done today.
Contracts that are not complete, traveling for gigs that are not what they promised, getting paid less because there was only 50 tickets sold, receiving $50 for a gig that cost you $100 to do…. These are the stories we want to change.
Our founder, Johanne Britton, has volunteered her Mob and herself to help develop and build the Canadian Association of Stand-up Comedians(CASC) since its launch in 2017. This has opened her eyes to the large disparities in the comedy industry and how comedians are treated in the artistic world compared to other forms of art.
This is why Red Fedora Comedy was created: To help comedians directly by changing the landscape in which they play.
From not being able to get grants because the government does not recognize your art form; to constantly getting passed over for American talent in your own country for; all the way to getting not enough support from the established entities that made their name and money off the backs of comedians.
Enough is enough.
It’s time for comedy to be treated for what it is: ART.
