ABOUT THE COMEDY BAR SPEAKER SERIES
We've invited industry experts from Canadian film, t.v and radio to Comedy Bar to share their journey of a profession in the arts. Each week a new guest speaker talks about their influences, what challenges they faced (or continue to face) and successes they have celebrated. Each will have a unique perspective into their specific industry (film, t.v and radio). You'll have an opportunity to ask questions and network with other attendees.
Learn from Ben Miner (Host & Programmer on Sirius XM Radio), Barry Taylor (Managing Partner at Comedy Records) Allison Dore (Host of the podcast Digging In, Host of The Breakdown on Sirius XM Radio), Luke Gordon Field (Executive Producer at The Beaverton) and Elizabeth Bowie (Executive Producer of CBC's Because News)
More guest speakers will be scheduled in the fall!
There is no prerequisite to attend
Fee: $20 per event (this fee includes HST); $10 for arts workers
