What We Do
Comedy Abroad produces stand-up comedy fundraisers in cool destinations to benefit nonprofits doing good at the local/regional level. We’re sneakily empowering expats, tourists, and locals to give back to the communities they’re visiting or living, by making them laugh! To date, we’ve raised $23K USD for 8 nonprofits helping communities in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Mexico.
We also create video content showcasing all our comedians do, see, eat, drink, hear and experience, as well as profiles of our nonprofit partners. Video from our Winter 2017 tour coming soon! Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel to see some video content to-date, as well as what our nonprofit partners have to say about us.
Our inaugural tour took place in winter 2015. Four Montreal-based stand-up comics blindly decided to hop on planes to undertake a tour of Guanacaste, Costa Rica to benefit 3 grassroots causes – all which support literacy and education initiatives in the region. People laughed, funds were raised, and beaches were lazed on, all so the work that our nonprofit partners do for their community can be sustained.
If you’re a registered non-profit in Latin America, the Caribbean, or anywhere else you feel we can help you draw a crowd, please let us know. We’d love to work with you.
Winter 2017 Tours!
We’d love to fundraise for registered nonprofits. We’d also love for sponsors who love doing good and who want unique video content to step up to the plate to make this happen.
If you’re a nonprofit, changemaker, or possible sponsoring brand, please get in touch and we’ll discuss working together!
