Who We Are
WE RAISE FUNDS FOR NON-PROFITS IN COOL PLACES WITH STAND-UP COMEDY
Comedy Abroad produces live English stand-up comedy shows to raise funds for grassroots nonprofits outside of North America. We’re passionate about making tourists, expats, & locals laugh hard, all while empowering them to 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.
To date, we’ve performed shows in Costa Rica & Nicaragua. We’re currently gearing up for our Winter 2017 tour. We have several nonprofit partners on board to raise new funds, and we’re looking to add a couple more in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.
If your nonprofit needs a fundraising shot in the arm, and want to make your supporters laugh hard please get in touch.
What We Do
Non-profits and their staff & volunteers are on the front lines of numerous challenges, trying to make an impact on communities with limited budgets & funding. Comedy Abroad empowers our non-profit partners to raise new funds with live stand-up comedy fundraisers, allowing them to do more to help communities & beneficiaries . We want to help causes raise new funds, and in turn get the word out and tell the stories of how partner non-profits are making an impact.
Through our tours, we’ve seen first-hand the needs of people, as well as the amazing work our non-profit partners do in their communities, and the difference they’re making. To date we’ve helped non-profits aimed at improving education, heathcare, literacy and enhancing employment opportunities. As such, we love tricking unsuspecting tourists into helping these causes, just by getting them to a stand-up comedy show and having an amazing time.
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 the enjoyment of their stay. We also hep 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.
