what we believe
Comedians keep us laughing and listening
We believe in comedy. We believe in comedians’ ability to take the irony, injustice, and idiocracy of this world as well as their own pain and synthesize it into something we can laugh about, and when its done right, something we can think about too.
We don't censor comedians
This is why we don’t censor comedians – your set is your perspective on the world and for the time you’ve got the mic, we don’t have to agree with you or even like what you’re saying to listen, and if it makes us laugh, you’ve done your job and deserve to be on our stages.
WE BELIEVE IN DIVERSITY
We believe that diversity is so much more than a soundbite or trending topic – its one of the best means by which to build a better future. We believe that curating a diverse lineup of truly talented voices from all walks of life actually levels the playing field and helps ensure a true meritocracy for the future of comedy.
We Belive in the golden rule
We know that we are here today and have come this far in large part due to our comedians and the overwhelming support we’ve received from the comedy community. One of our core values has always been to treat others how we want to be treated and that’s our vision for Laugh After Dark: to create the kinds of opportunities and experiences we want to exist.
We love our audiences
Treating others how we want to be treated extends to our fans and audience members as well. We consider our audiences to be the most important part of every show, tour, and production we put together. Since our audiences are the real stars of the show, we pay attention to every detail to make sure we create events that we ourselves would love to attend. From the moment a guest buys their ticket to the moment we call cut after filming, and everything in between, we want to create an experience unlike any other and one they’ll never forget.
