OUR  MISSION 

To entertain, teach, and inspire through the power of comedy.

OUR  VISION 

Establish a fun, diverse culture where everyone is welcome, weird is cool, and people confidently embrace their authentic selves.

 

OUR  CORE VALUES 

 1   We believe everyone can be an amazing speaker and performer. Confidence, charisma, and comedy live in every person—you just have to unlock it.

 2   We believe stepping out of your comfort zone is a lot less scary (and more fun!) when it involves laughter. Comedy is the tool, but personal growth is the outcome.

 3   We believe in diversity, inclusion, and learning from everyone’s unique story.

 4   We believe relationships are more valuable than money.

 5   We believe in creating a safe, comfortable community where weird is cool and authenticity wins.
