email list We send out two weekly emails; one with the sign-up protocol and one with the bookings. if you are new to comedy or the area we ask that you help us get a big ass crowd by talking to folks on the street ("barking/Flyering"), inviting friends ("bringing"), or coming in with a rec ("Being a working funny comedian").
harassment policy Capital Laughs treasures our community's humor and the comedians we book to offer their time and talents and to make people laugh. We have to support each other, so In that spirit, we insist folks we book treat our community members with respect, refrain from race-based, sex-based, sexual orientation-based, national origin-based, religious-based or any other-based harassment. It is wrong; it is not to be tolerated; and it is so unnecessary when we have a town full of politicians we can disrespect on stage. Srsly, though, you should know that we will not tolerate these behaviors and will not book comedians who we determine either engage in them, encourage them or fail to let us know when others do. We are not your mother or your boss, but we are telling you how we feel and what we will do.
Booking policy We book comics regardless of race, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identification. However, we do consider voice, perspective and if your funny or not, when booking shows to ensure the audience has a diverse and original ENTERTAINMENT experience.
