604 Records comedy label imprint Comedy Here Often? was founded in 2016, when Jonathan Simkin recognized a gap in the market for West Coast comedians, despite a very rich comedy community. The first comedy release from 604 was Kevin Banner’s “Dreamboat” which went #1 on the iTunes comedy chart. As did three more back to back releases in 2017: “Premature” from Sirius XM’s 2017 Top Comic winner Gavin Matts; “Taking It Up the Notch” from Fringe Festival award winning comedy songstress Shirley Gnome; and “Fatherland”, for which Charlie Demers was nominated for a Juno Award. In 2018 CHO released “Dungeon Master” from Sirius XM Top Comic 2017 finalist, Kyle Bottom, as well as and Harris Anderson’s “Above and Beyond”, which is a collection of twisted songs and stand up. Anderson’s darkly comic music video “Hometown” was premiered on Paste Magazine. Comedy Here Often? has also launched a YouTube channel which streams stand up from their original CHO-produced live-streamed comedy events, sketch comedy, music videos, faux ads, cartoons and more. With an ever-expanding roster of comedians and more releases coming out in 2019 from Vancouver-based favourites Myles Anderson, Yumi Nagashima, and Fatima Dhowre; there is no shortage of comedy, coming, often.
