Last year when comedy clubs around the country shut down due to the pandemic, the Comedy Gives Back team quickly went to work to create several grants to help comedians in need- the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund and the BIPOC Stand Up Comedian Fund.
Comedians were encouraged to apply, and Comedy Gives Back worked tirelessly to get the applications processed. Thankful grant recipients sent us testimonials expressing their gratitude for the financial assistance.
Watch comedian JeLloyd Spencer talk about what getting a grant means to him.
Comedy clubs are opening up, but our work isn't done. If you're able, please consider a one-time or monthly donation here.
