WHO WE ARE?
The CallBack Corporate Entertainment team has more than 40 years combined entertainment experience, lead by Judy B. Sims, President, and two of the top agents in the country, Nancy Beaven and Holly Watt.
Starting in 1985 in the comedy club business, Judy Sims, President, noticed that other venues across Western Canada wanted to bring in comedy for a night so a touring company of Canada's top comedians was created. It was only natural that to follow was an agency that provided comedy not only for venues but also for the corporate and community event's needs in Western Canada. The agency was rebranded in 2007 to CallBack Corporate Entertainment Inc. and has since grown to represent a larger variety of corporate comedy, specialty acts, motivational speakers, keynotes and musicians, becoming Canada's preferred entertainment booking agency.
JUDY B. SIMS
With a decade of service experience Judy decided it was time to stop working for others and become an entrepreneur. Moving back to Edmonton from Toronto she and her partner opened the first back alley sandwich shop, "CJ Good Eats", to rave reviews. She then sold the restaurant and started a new venture, "A Catered Affair". A gourmet catering company specializing in small home and office parties, Judy and her partner quickly became one of the top go to caterers in Edmonton.
Not ones to become complacent after several years of being in the catering business they were brought on by a national comedy chain to open the first club in Western Canada and were introduced to the world of comedy and the rest, as they say, is history. Judy had found her passion. Selling the catering company to her partner she came on as a full time consultant, opening clubs and troubleshooting across Canada and the US.
Moving into the development and booking of talent she is the pioneer responsible for the creation of Corporate Comedy in Western Canada and has played a key role in developing many major artists over her 25 years in the comedy/entertainment business. She herself is funny (or so she thinks), outgoing and a pleasure to work with (depending on who you ask, remember, she is the President) and is proud to have on her team the two leading agents in the industry:
