Re Don’t Call It Brain Drain: Why One Lo­cal Co­me­dian Is Fol­low­ing the Mass Ex­o­dus Out Of Canada by An­drew Johnston (NOW, Oc­to­ber 26-Novem­ber 1). Wow, was this ar­ti­cle writ­ten in 1994?!

Co­me­di­ans to­day have the best plat­form that can reach bil­lions of peo­ple, no mat­ter if they live in Canada, the U.S. or Afghanistan: the in­ter­net. You don’t need to spend “a small for­tune” for a Green Card to start a YouTube show here in Canada, dude. I can’t think of a bet­ter plat­form to gain ex­po­sure. Not just YouTube, but pod­cast­ing and blogs, too.

There are so many ways to start a ca­reer. Nine­ty­nine per cent of the time for­tunes don’t im­prove at all when you move to the U.S.
