Welcome to the Underground Comedy Railroad

Our Story:

The Underground Comedy Railroad (UCR) is a groundbreaking all-black comedy tour, founded in 2012 by Rodney Ramsey and Daniel Woodrow. As Canada's first tour of its kind, UCR has been pioneering the way for Black Canadian comedians to share their unique humor and stories with a wider audience. Each February, to coincide with Black History Month, we embark on a nationwide journey, bringing laughter and thought-provoking entertainment to stages across Canada.

Our Mission:

At UCR, our mission is simple yet profound: to celebrate Black comedic talent and to introduce their distinct voices to new and diverse audiences. We aim to break barriers and build bridges through humor, providing a platform where laughter transcends cultural differences.

Our Comedians:

Each year, we curate a dynamic lineup of some of the best Black Canadian comedians. These talented individuals are chosen for their unique comedic styles, which range from satirical commentary to relatable stories about race and everyday life. Our comedians are not just performers; they are storytellers who bring their experiences to life on stage, creating a memorable and engaging experience for all.

Our Impact:

UCR is more than just a comedy tour. It's a cultural event that brings diverse perspectives to regions across Canada, many of which may not have experienced this type of event before. We take pride in being pioneers in the Canadian comedy scene, using humor as a tool to educate, inspire, and unite people from all walks of life.
