Coming in fall: How To Build Your Comedy Brand, and our signature Standup Comedy 101
You bring your writing project. We bring the crew and the fun to help it get DONE.
This summer: You know that writing project/#goal you committed to in May? Get it DONE with support from your comedy crew. You bring your project—we bring the feedback, collaboration, accountability, and FUN you need to get it done. Your project can be actual comedy (standup, sketch, script) OR something that could use some funny, like an article, pitch, cover letter, or speech that needs punching up. OR you can team up with another GOLDie and create something new! We can work with just about anything! Tuesdays, August 3-August 24, 6-8 pm ET.
What you'll get:
Led by GOLD founder and award-winning writer/author/journalist/comic Lynn Harris! Lynn has written—and taught others to write—standup, sketch, stories (designed to be told live), novels, non-fiction, magazine articles, marketing copy, animation, advice columns, speeches, taglines, elaborate to-do lists, and much, much more.
A limited number of scholarships are available to folks who demonstrate interest and need.
Want to help support our scholarship students? You are so nice! Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Give the gift of GOLD to the comedy lover in your life here.
GOLD Comedy is the learning and social platform for young women/non-binary folks* 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 tell a joke, you’ve got the stage, the mic, the punch. When you make people laugh, you make people listen.
Comedy times are changing, but still: Women (and other non-straight cis white dudes) don’t have equal access to that power, for themselves or in society...because patriarchy! So GOLD puts women first, because comedy does not. And the more women do comedy, the more women define comedy. The more women define comedy, the more women are taken seriously. 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. It is now the one-stop online shop for young women/non-binary folks all over the world who want to be their funniest selves.
GOLD’s community, classes, content, celebrity Q&As, and performance opportunities build skills and highlight career paths for young women in today's most relevant forms of comedy—expanding and diversifying tomorrow’s talent pool.
*We are an inclusive community, welcoming especially women and women-identified or non-binary/non-gender-conforming humans.
