Stop by Washington Square Park for free comedy from Christian Finnegan and more
Laughter in the ParkWashington Square Park (1 Washington Sq E New York, NY 10011) Map it Free
Sometimes it's hard to explain because we're unique…we're a bonafide 501(c)3 arts organization looking to take live performance comedy out of the clubs and directly to the people of New York City. It's a lot of fun, but running a funny non profit is no laughing matter - just ask the IRS. No one can make them even crack a smile.
Our ultimate goal is to change people's perception of the comic arts, especially stand-up comedy, and to strengthen the shared cultural bonds that humor engenders. We're working to grow into an umbrella organization for creative performers and organizations involved in comedy within the public realm so that NYLaughs can focus attention on new and exciting movements within the community. Through our featured events and series we can also channel corporate support to grassroots development in a way that has previously been lacking. We believe that laughter can change the world and we're working to make it a part of the daily urban experience.
