JUST FOR LAUGHS IS PROUD TO SUPPORT THE EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND FOR CANADIAN COMEDIANS CREATED BY CASC

April 19, 2020

Just For Laughs is proud to support the Emergency Relief Fund for Canadian Comedians to help raise money on GoFundMe for comedians who have lost work and income due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As COVID-19 has caused the shutdown of comedy clubs and theatres, comedians are among many artists suffering through this crisis. Comedic writers and performers experienced unexpected income loss immediately, and are facing several months of unemployment as the country practices social distancing. This is why CASC has created the Emergency Relief Fund for Canadian Comedians – an initiative to help comedians in this unprecedented time of crisis.

The sudden concerns around being able to pay rent or buy groceries are obviously not unique to just comedians, but it is an element of the industry who for the most part don’t have access to the financial support that is available to those of us in full-time employment.
