Fundraiser For Freddy

I have known Fred Mundy since the 1980's. He has always been one of the good guys in this business of comedy. Even though our careers went in different directions, every time we worked together it was a pleasure. Fred always made working at the Toronto Yuk Yuk's a very positive experience. #fuckcancer Let's all support Fred Mundy if you have the means $$ and also with our affection.. Fred Mundy is an important part of Toronto and Canadian Comedy history. #canadiancomedy #standupcomedy #torontocomedy

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

More important than anything else is the health and safety of every single person on the planet. And a big thank you to the frontline workers in this fight against Covid-19

The Comedy Green Room was launched on December 31, 2000, I cannot believe that 20 years have passed in a blink of an eye. We have had three designs in of the website throughout the years.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Comedy Green Room, I took on the task of redesigning the site. With Ms. Skylar Hart’s guidance, I started from scratch to make the site more user friendly. The goal was to increase the blog visibility. Have more followers submit articles and add “Comedy Tips” to our resources.

The New Comedy Green Room Site is live. Check it out by visiting

I never imagined the impact my little website would have on the international comedy community. I have stood by the philosophy of promoting stand-up comedy for the love of stand-up comedy. The website has proven stars on the site as well as unknown comics. And some of the known comics ten years ago are now household names.

Thank you to everyone who visits, supports, and contributes to keeping The Comedy Green Room an International Comedy Resource.
