Tim Sims Fund Looking for Hot New Acts

Our friends over at the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund recently released their call for submissions for the Fresh Meat Showcase in September.

If you are a performer or troupe in the early stages of your career – i.e. 30 years or younger, performing for less than two years, Toronto based (see full citeria here) – you should put your name forward. The Fresh Meat Showcase is where all of the eligible comedians strut their stuff for the panel of judges who ultimately pick the final five nominees for the Award.

The Tim Sims Encouragement Award is an awesome opportunity to kick-start your career – there’s a cash prize and lots of attention at stake. The list of previous winners and nominees is star-studded including Fraser Young, Debra DiGiovanni, Gavin Crawford and Jessica Holmes.
