Each year The Underground Comedy Railroad invites local Black comedians to perform on each stop of the tour increasing their opportunities to reach a larger audience, and often to perform on stages they might not otherwise have the opportunity to perform on. The showcases celebrate the 12th anniversary of the annual tour that has travelled across Canada during Black History Month since 2012.
Beginning February 3 in Toronto, the tour hits the road with Black comedians from across Canada including tour co-founders Rodney Ramsey and Daniel Woodrow, plus Tamara Shevon, and Keesha Brownie, with special guests Travis Lindsay, Violet Gray, Akeem Hoyte-Charles, Simone Holder, and Peter Bowen.
About the Tour
The tour was created by Rodney Ramsey and Daniel Woodrow in 2012 to create opportunities and introduce the voices of black Canadian comedians to new audiences abroad. Every year a new line-up of comics is selected for their hilarious and uniquely Canadian comedic perspectives on everything from race to everyday life. The Underground Comedy Railroad is now well known for being the first ever all black comedy tour in the country, bringing diverse perspectives to regions who have never experienced this kind of unique cultural event.
