Welcome to ROCTV!

Rise of the Comics is a web series and entertainment concept developed by Scotty Aceman. The show takes an insightful look into the amateur and pro stand-up comedy scene in Vancouver… Featuring interviews with comics, plus exclusive footage from events around the community: Rise of the Comics will examine what inspires these artists, where you can see them perform, and how you can get involved in the comedy community!

A multi-cultural experience, the Vancouver comedy family is a diverse, and rich group of very funny men and women, ranging in levels from newbie-amateur to professional. We explore the art – and fun – of stand-up, try to understand what inspires these comics, and via competition push the winning amateur into special showcase events!

Filming for Rise of the Comics has commenced, and lots of content has been compiled over the past few months! Our filming at Yuk Yuk’sBenny’s Bagels, Big Rock Urban, and Yagger’s have been nothing short of phenomenal, and we’re always searching for new ways to highlight the talented people in our community! Check out our features on Breakfast Television and in the Vancouver Courier!
