Stand-Up Comedy + Tourism = Impact

Comedy Abroad’s live stand-up shows offer a unique fundraising vehicle for grassroots not-for-profits outside of North America. We’re passionate about making tourists, expats, & locals laugh hard, all while empowering them give back to communities they’re passing through or living in.


Our comics have performed at international & regional comedy festivals, clubs all over North America, Fringe Festivals, fundraisers of all sizes and more.  We work with non-profits to understand who audiences & communities are to make their fundraiser a success.


We’re excited to be coming to Costa Rica for 8 shows (Feb 18-27, 2016), but let us know if you’d like us to come back. We’re open to helping causes in other countries as well. If your cause or community is a nonprofit that needs a shot in the fundraising arm, and would like like to learn how we can help, please get in touch.

What We Do

Empower Not-For-Profits

The Samara Beach (Costa Rica) Community Center is Asociacion CREAR's home base.

Comedy Abroad empowers not-for-profits to raise much-needed funds to help their communities & beneficiaries with live stand-up comedy fundraisers.  There’s no shortage of assistance and support that’s required on a global basis and we want to play a role.  We’re striving to build bridges between causes, and local hospitality & tourism in order to ensure that all events are a success.

Embetter Lives

Non-profits and their staff & volunteers are on the front lines of numerous challenges, trying to make a difference with limited budgets and funding.  We want to help causes raise new funds, and in turn get the word out there to tell the stories of the beneficiaries of our partner cause’s funding efforts and hard work.

Entertain Travellers & Expats

Tourism plays a huge role in the economies of many developing nations.  We’re looking to offer a fun night of entertainment to tourists & expats of all walks, keep them happy, and add to their stay.  At the same time, we shine light on some challenges the local community deals with. Our shows are meant to entertain, but also fill tourists & expats in on some local challenges, and further empower tourism to give back.
