Our mission is to make Sacramento laugh. Every day.

Sacramento Comedy Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation (47-3441374). In addition to supporting the local comedy community, we partner with other local nonprofit organizations to create comedy event fundraisers that help make Sacramento a better place to live. We operate a youth program that provides improv training for kids, giving them an opportunity to develop confidence and be creative in a safe and supportive environment. We create comedy-related events, like the Improv MarathonStand-Up Competition, and Comedy Festival, that draw comedians and comedy fans to Sacramento. We also operate Sacramento Comedy Spot, an adult comedy show venue and home to Northern California’s largest comedy school for adults.

We believe that a more diverse community is a stronger community. Sacramento Comedy Foundation is committed to diversity, equality, and inclusion, at all levels of our organization, at our events, on our stage, and throughout Sacramento.

In order to provide these services we need your help. We are currently raising money for the following:

Diversity Scholarship

The Sacramento Comedy Foundation will be awarding Diversity Scholarships on a monthly basis. If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund the Foundation will give two class scholarships for every donation amount equal to a paid class. ($125-$160) These scholarships will be IN ADDITION to the scholarships we will be awarding month.

New Training Center

The Foundation is opening a new training center to be used for our Comedy for Kids program and students at the Sacramento Comedy Spot. We will need paint, signage, and chairs. Please donate any amount. 

Comedy Spot Improvement (Chairs, Stage, Green Room – 2/3 Complete)

We needed new chairs desperately! And boom, thanks to you, we have brand new, comfy, chairs! Thank you for your donations!

We just finished a remodel of our green room thanks to you!

We still need to upgrade the stage- resurfacing and a new back wall! We are close to having all of this complete. We just need some extra money for stage panels, a new door for the stage, paint, and some fixtures. 

A NEW Location

Our ultimate goal is to save enough money to move into a building with TONS OF CLASSROOMS, an expanded bar, offices, collaboration rooms, a green room next to the stage, and a real tech booth!

We want to open up our classrooms and collaboration spaces to all performing arts organizations in Sacramento!

So, let’s get some new digs!
