GOLD Comedy is the learning and social platform for women/non-binary folks of all ages who want to turn their sense of humor into their superpower.
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.
