Raise the Bar Comedy loves and celebrates kickass women comics. Amna Bee @amna.bee.comedy had a chat with the hilarious and inspiring Pakistani comedian and artist Tamkenat @tamkenat about her artistic journey and being funny in a serious place. South Asian Today @southasiantoday has the full feature on their website.

Tamkenat’s content is a mix of Punjabi, Urdu and English and it’s brilliant, have a look!

Alright alright alright! Our show is day after tomorrow and we’re very very excited to welcome Melanie Dahling @melaniedahling to our stage!!

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba- Melanie Dahling is making a name for herself in Toronto with sharp writing, theatricality, and fabulous unfabulousness.

As an opening act, she’s worked with the likes of Cameron Esposito and Anna Drezen.

As a headliner, she’s graced the stages of Montreal’s Art Loft, Winnipeg’s Comedy at Wee Johnny’s, and Toronto’s The Merry Janes of Comedy.

Check out her interactive abomination “Down to Clown” monthly at Nothing Fancy.

Making our upcoming showcase even more epic is Isabel Zaw-Tun @isabelzawtun who will be joining us this Friday August 19th (9:30pm at @mandys_bistro Toronto)!

Isabel Zaw-Tun is best known as one of the coproducers of fashion-comedy show Hack Couture, and worst known as the star of a Turbo Tax ad with fourty-two thumbs down on YouTube. She once designed a T-Shirt for Mackauley Caulkin (sp?) and lives around the corner from the s*x shop with the worst Yelp reviews in the city.

Intrigued? We sure are! Can’t wait to have Isabel tell us all about this and more!

Very very few tickets left. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Raise the Bar Comedy is coming up this Friday August 19 and we are thrilled to have Desirée Walsh @desiree.lisa.walsh_ with us!

Desirée is a comedian with cerebral palsy. A former competitive swimmer, she traded in early morning swim workouts for the late nights of stand-up comedy. She has been featured on Breakfast Television, The Reel Abilities Film Festival Comedy Night, ALTdot comedy Lounge and the now defunct show Nighttime TV on Rogers cable Mississauga.

She’s an absolute killer on stage and you need to catch her before she gets her own Netflix special so you can brag about it. Make sure you don’t miss out!

It feels like a privilege to bring Raise the Bar Comedy to Toronto and we are so grateful and stoked to have awesome comics like Rasha Elfeky @thatgirlrasha join our August 19th showcase lineup.

This is next level – Raise the Bar Comedy in Toronto Canada! We’re going international baby!
Raise the Bar Comedy kicked off in Melbourne, Australia over a year ago and has hosted awesome, fun-filled, killer comedy nights with the spotlight on local women and non-binary comics. We are now going to do the same in Toronto. It’s the comedy crossover between these two countries we didn’t know we needed.

The epicness will unfold on Friday August 19th 9:30 pm (EDT) at Mandy's Bistro @mandys_bistro (123 Danforth Ave - Broadview & Danforth). A show as great as this one needs a venue that’s just as great and we’re so grateful and happy to have Mandy Goodhandy @mandygoodhandy have us!

Also so so thrilled to have line up of very funny comics – many of whom trusted me when I said I can put on a show. Thank you for that. I promise this is not a cover for selling Amway. Our line up features:

Rasha Elfeky @thatgirlrasha
Surer Qaly Deria @suddendlysurer
Melanie Dahling @melaniedahling
Rena Taylor @reenerdog
Hannah Veldhoen @hannah.veldhoen
Desirée Walsh @desiree.lisa.walsh_

Your host for the evening is Amna Bee @amna.bee.comedy a globe-trotting comedian who loves cross-cultural collaborations more than vegan wine.

Come along to watch some comedy in a welcoming, vibrant environment. You definitely don’t want to miss this historical event. Tickets are only $12, just about the most affordable thing in Toronto right now 😉

Last night's May Extravaganza @voltairemelb was spectacular fun! We had standup comics, we had musicians and we had vampires 😂

Our audience was as lovely as always. Such a treat playing to this crowd.

Thanks to all our amazing performers @heatherjoanofficial @bokla @livelaughlauren__ @camillerihannah @caseygothard @kathrillhouse @judeperl (and thank you @mazzahhh for jumping on last minute!) and our wonderful guest co-host @annalogcomedy for making the evening so great 😍

And thank you @creme.captures for these divine pics 🔥

This was the last Raise the Bar Comedy showcase until @amna.bee.comedy returns from her travels. Who knows though, there might be an international Raise the Bar comedy popup night during that time ;)

See you soon babes!

Less than a year since its inception Raise The Bar Comedy has managed to book its first corporate gig. It's been a hell of a ride: sold out shows every month and now two incredibly successful online shows... The sky is the limit. So incredibly proud of what we have done Amna Bee : we're raising the bar to smash that glass ceiling into glitter ✨✨
The performers tonight were all awesome. Congratulations to all of you for doing such an amazing job through zoom! It was honestly uplifting :)
Doing it (comedy) online with the girlies tonight! 🧚🏼‍♀️ Raise The Bar Comedy 7pm (AEST) Tix: http://tinyurl.com/rtbonlineaug
Last night I had the great privilege of an uncut chinwag with Amna Bee and Sam Serna - the brains behind Raise The Bar Comedy about the Olympics and continued colonisation, conscious comedy curation and accessibility (or inaccessibility in Melbourne venues - what's with all the stairs!). Last night featured this amazing crew! Pictured clockwise from top left: Cousin Tara, Sunanda (aka DJ Angel Baby), Stella Del Lure, Pauline Sherlock, Harlene Hercules (aka Mandy), Amna Bee, Emily Weir (aka Lord Furby), Jude Perl, Sam Serna.
