Partnership with Grassroots Comedy
The impact of comedy on public engagement and social change is more than speculation. Over the last few years, we have seen our audience double and triple in size. We have also seen our partner organizations grow their audience, build their volunteer base, and mobilize people to action through our comedy. As we continue to exit the pandemic years, people are searching for therapeutic outlets and many are defaulting to the old adage, "laughter is the best medicine.” We see this as a significant opportunity for communities, nonprofits, and grassroots organizations to become leaders in facilitating public dialogue that is constructive, positive, healing, and promotes change.
If you are interested in partnering with Grassroots Comedy or are interested in learning more on how to amplify your social justice advocacy through comedy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It was absolutely amazing partnering with Grassroots Comedy DC. Their fantastic show benefitted La Clinica del Pueblo in so many ways, raising needed funds for lifesaving healthcare services and increasing awareness about the importance of community health. We cannot wait to work with them again!
On behalf of the LAYC team, I want to thank you again for the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with GCDC to raise funds for our organization. We are honored to have been able to work with such a special team that is making a positive impact in the community. The event was well-organized, we appreciated your excellent communication with our team, and we were very pleased with the turnout and quality of the lineup. Our staff also enjoyed taking an evening to relax and enjoy tons of laughs out in this great town of DC! "
Grassroots Comedy DC ran a fabulous comedy show for Ayuda. They have access to the top local talent and pull out all the stops to run a great show from top to bottom. We hope to partner with them again in the future. "
I wanted to take a second and say thank you for an absolutely awesome show on Friday. The comics were fantastic and we loved the Kramerbooks setting. All in all it was exactly what we wanted. "
The LGBTQ Rights show was hilarious, and a wonderful night out! The team at GCDC were well organized and easy to work with. Not only did they raise needed funds for the DC Center, but we got an opportunity to share our story with the audience and meet some amazing folks along the way! "
We had a wonderful experience with Grassroots Comedy. They sold out the show, raised us significant amounts of money, and put on a top-notch performance. Would we work with them again? Absolutely! Name the date! "
