In this challenging time we know that our mission of sparking conversation, connecting individuals and strengthening community is even more important and therefore we are working to find innovative ways to continue our work together. Thank you for diving into this experiment and exploring the joys of comedy and community together!

Getting off the couch has never felt so sweet!

This summer - Our first time offering Couch to Mic for Teens. Spend four weeks - in person, with other humans - writing, rehearsing and performing your own, original 3-5 minutes of comedy. This can be stand-up, story telling, or a short skit.

Over the course of four weeks students will be coached and guided in a supportive and fun environment, where each person can discover and amplify their own comedic voice, culminating in an exciting, live show. 
Couch to Mic is an opportunity to take moments from your life and transform it to an empowering comedy experience. You have three minutes of material for sure! 

Take your ideas off the page and onto the comedy stage. You have something to say, get up there and say it!
