When the brand new Calgary Yuk Yuk's club opened in February of this year it was a big deal to the local comedians. A new venue should provide work and training in their selected field. An important part of any comedy club is an audience and despite the hard work of the owners, The City of Calgary continues to deny them a basic marketing necessity to promote their venue: a sign on the outside of their building. This interference from the local government makes the venue more difficult to find and doesn't capitalize on walk-by and drive-by traffic to help promote the room. Low (or no) audiences mean no development time for new comedians and no paid work for professional comedians. Not only is The City of Calary interfering with the livelihood of the venue, but also all the performers who would work there. By signing this petition you show your support to The City of Calgary Council that the Yuk Yuk's club in the Elbow River Casino needs and deserves proper signage on the outside of their building.
