From there she transitioned to the world of stand-up comedy handling publicity and marketing for The Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall, one of the country’s top ten comedy clubs. Following her stint there, she was hired for her branding and marketing prowess for the start-up concert venue Showcase Live in Foxborough, MA. Colette later took on the role of Public Relations manager for The Roxbury International Film Festival.
