Level up your standup set. Turn your 2 or 3 or 5 into a tight 10 for your next headlining set! (Taught by Carolyn Castiglia)

GOLD Comedy is the comedy school, creative community, and content studio where women and non-binary folks grow their comedy careers, build a powerful network, and make funny stuff.
We believe that comedy is power. When you write a joke, you reassemble reality. When you make people laugh, you make people listen.
Women (and other non-straight cis white dudes) don’t have equal access to that power, for themselves or in society...because patriarchy!
GOLD puts women first because comedy does not. And! *trumpet sound* When we change the face of comedy, we change the face of power.
Founded by Lynn Harris in 2016, GOLD started as live comedy classes and events for teen girls in New York City, plus a one-of-a-kind online standup course and other digital resources. It is now the one-stop online shop for women/non-binary folks all over the world who want to be their funniest selves.

***We are an inclusive community, welcoming especially women and women-identified, or non-binary/gender-nonconforming people.
