Comedians Cory Mack and Harry Doupe are involved in an intriguing project. If you're a Canadian comic reading this, follow the links and add a profile. It'll be interesting to see what the final numbers are, not to mention a great resource. Also, the name is great. Say it out loud for the full effect. Spread the word to your comedy buddies:

As a Canadian Comedian it's time to stand up and be counted!

In an effort to have a definitive record in honour of the ones who entertain us, Comediapedia has begun its search for each and every Comedian in Canada.

Comediapedia aspires to be the first complete living record of everyone who has ever dared call themselves a Canadian Comedian with direct links to Canadian Comedians and other features like:

- a current cross-country comedy calendar of upcoming performances by your favourite Canadian Comedians

- a compelling history of the Canadian Comedians and their stories compiled by Harry Doupe

- Comediapedia's e-newsletter

- anecdotes and road stories from the comics you've heard about, and those that you are going to hear about

We need you! We've spent months compiling a list of Canadian comedians for one reason... we are gathering all Canadian Comedians together in one place to highlight the amazing talent that is produced here in our country. Every Canadian Comedian, from amateur to professional - from sea to sea - with talents in Standup/Sketch/Improv and Musical/Variety - will receive an invitation to create a profile on

It's simple... check out the website to create your profile:

You can share as much or as little as you like... and then spread the word!

Together we can bring attention and regard to our profession.

Without agenda and full of hope, I invite you to join us.
