COMEDY BY COTTON®
Reece Cotton produces a live stand-up series called Comics Rising that delivers curated entertainment in celebration of empowering movements throughout her city and beyond.
Cotton became a stand-up comedian as a means to cope with the loss of her younger brother and founded the Javonee Cotton Scholarship for Comedic Excellence in honor of his memory. She made her television stand-up debut on season two of Comedy Central's Hart of the City with Kevin Hart. She made her international stand-up debut at the 2018 Hong Kong International Comedy Festival and was selected as a Rising Star in the 2019 North Hollywood Comedy Festival.
Cotton's debut comedy album recording is being held at a theater near you in 2020.
You can learn more about her journey on Boston's award winning urban news network WCVB's CityLine 5.
More and more artists are becoming rising competitors in this golden age of self-promotion and entrepreneurship. We make it look easy but this business is hard to navigate.
Individual sessions are geared towards those who may need a website or want to start creating engaging content but don't know where to start. Learn how to make the most of the free online tools and platforms that are on the market today.
We serve food to those in need on a monthly basis and donate a portion of annual proceeds to non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting the homeless in Boston. We make on-going contributions to those invested in our communities such as Boston's Covid-19 Relief Funds, Market Sharing, Mattapan's Edgewater Neighborhood Association, and Roslindale's Village Main Street.
During this difficult time, we've started reinvesting in our arts & entertainment community by making donations to independent artists, The Comedy Studio and our beloved Rozzie Square Theater.
The annual Javonee Cotton Scholarship for Comedic Excellence was founded in memory of Reece Cotton's late baby brother. 2018 Honorees received their scholarship through the Women In Comedy Festival. 2019 recipients received their scholarship through the Boston Comedy Chicks. 2020 honorees have already started receiving their scholarship through Comics Rising.
Out of 3 early acceptance applicants, one rising comedian was selected by our committee to make his NYC stand-up debut at Caroline's on Broadway. He did so at their New Face's Showcase on Feb 17, 2020.
The Comics Rising Stand-up Program was founded in the spirit of dedicating time and resources towards helping new aspiring comedians get started on their comedy journey. A former student who successfully completed the 2018 program recently reported making as much as one-hundred dollars per show.
In the fall of 2020, an online version of the course is scheduled to roll out for comedians in Boston and beyond.
We have successfully been developing comedy shows and events throughout the City of Boston and beyond since 2016. Hire us to produce your next event and we'll make it a remarkable one to remember.
