💛 Just one of many hearts of GOLD

❝I'd been struggling to find the courage to try comedy for three years! And GOLD was just the welcoming space and the friendly push I needed! I feel really lucky to have found this community (especially during COVID). It seems weird to me that I’ve never actually “met” the other GOLD members because it they all feel like close friends now!❞ — Meghan H., Columbus, OH

✨About GOLD

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.
