Book us: If you’re a venue owner or manager who would like to have stand up comedy shows produced and marketed for you, you are in the right place! We bring insanely talented up-and-coming stand up comedians as well as top talent – as seen on JFL, JFL42, CBC, Sirius XM and more – right to your stage. We cover everything; the marketing and promotion of the event, door management, ensuring the show starts and ends on time and more. On average, our monthly shows fill 90 – 100% capacity.
Join us: Finally, if you’re a new or experienced stand up comic looking for stage time then you, too are in the right place. Email us your bio and a video link (5 minute-ish set) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know if you’re looking for a newbie (5 minute spot), solid middle (8-10 minute paid spot), or feature/headliner spot (15-25 minute paid). Please note that we do not book acts who punch down on stage or in dumb social media posts/comments.
About us: So who runs Black Sheep Comedy, you ask? Two super cool women, that’s who!
Darcia Armstrong is a stand-up comic with a style that’s been described as “Story telling with punchlines”- whatever that means. She is a Second City graduate of both the stand-up program and comedy writing program, and has performed on some incredible stages across the Ontario, including the common rooms in women’s shelters. Darcia was a semi-finalist at Comedy Brawl Toronto and a finalist in Clash of the Comics. She co-produces several shows across the GTA as part of Black Sheep Comedy, and can be seen as a regular guest host of Comedy Appetizer .
Having accomplished nothing noteworthy, herself, Darcia can often be heard telling people that she’s performed alongside other comedians who have performed at JFL, JFL42, CBC, Comedy Network and more.
Cathy Macpherson is an up-and-coming Toronto-based comic who broke onto the scene in 2017. She is a Second City Training Centre grad who co-produced the Comedy Nuggets show at Social Capital every month. Cathy is currently co-producing Black Sheep Comedy and booking & hosting the Cheap Laughs show in Oshawa every Thursday night. She brings her candid brand, imaginary boyfriend and “mesmerizing” faux strip show to stages from Oshawa to Oakville and to local clubs in between. A 2018 Comedy Brawl competitor and fierce finalist in both the Clash of the Comics and Etobicoke’s Top Comic search, Cathy has shown that this seasoned female can do it all.
