The Other Comedy Story

Comedy is for everyone 

The Other Comedy Company was born from one radical idea:

"What if we could revolutionize the way people connect, learn, and grow through the practical use of comedy and gamification?"

Our mission is simple:

To break barriers, ignite creativity, and strengthen communities by delivering unparalleled comedic experiences.

Our Story

Clifford Myers, a seasoned Canadian comedian and President of The Canadian Association of Sketch, Improv and Standup Comedians, founded The Other Comedy Company on May 4th, 2022 one minute after being fired from Shopify.

This scrappy, resilient, do-it-yourself attitude became the instant bedrock of our foundation as a business. Understanding that our clients are innovators and connectors who want to work with innovators and connectors. We quickly learned that our clients were the type of people who thrive off grit and aren't afraid to take risks to accomplish their goals. 

With the bold idea to combine comedy with personal and professional development, what started as a humble venture has evolved into a functioning organization that brings together comedians, educators, business leaders and innovators.

Clifford's unique journey from standup to startup has shaped our approach, integrating laughter with learning to create lasting change.
