Booking Agent in Western Canada for Yuk Yuk’s On Tour and corporate comedy
Kelly joined the Yuk Yuk’s corporate team in 2008 as the Western Canadian office’s general manager and booking agent for the On Tour and Corporate divisions of the company – based out of Calgary, she handles BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and The Territories. Kelly started as a stand-up back in 1986 but gave it up after several years to raise the family…. Fast forward more years (toiling as a bookkeeper – ugh!) and her love of comedy prompted her to follow her dream to work at something she loved, so when the opportunity opened up with Yuk Yuks, she jumped at the chance and left the hated bookkeeping game behind. You will often find this comedy nerd around the local clubs and scene, watching her favorite acts, performing occasionally and monitoring the development of the comics. Not only does this little dynamo know funny, but she knows business, and therefore knows who would be the perfect fit for your fundraisers, Christmas parties, corporate events or your bar gigs – her passion and knowledge of the industry shows through time and again in her commitment to her clients and customer service. Call her, you won’t be disappointed – maybe she’ll tell you the story of how comedy saved her from being a psychologist! Laughter really is the best medicine after all.
