Work With Us


Are you sick of trying to find 8 friends to come see your stand up show at 9:30PM on a Tuesday night? Are you tired of the “pay-to-play” culture of NYC comedy? Do you want to do a show where the focus is on the quality of the material? Us too! Come perform at a Laughing Matters NYC Show!

We are a DIY collective with an independent spirit. Our goal is to disrupt the status quo of NYC comedy and to put on quality, funny shows. We chose the name Laughing Matters because we believe laughing does matter, and we want our show to reflect this.

Want to do one of our shows? Great! We do not ask for too much! All we require is a tape of your comedy set. It does NOT have to be a professional tape. It may be something as simple as an iPhone video recording of yourself at an open mic. But we do want to see something to confirm that you are ready for one of our shows. We never charge anything to perform at our shows, nor do we have a minimum guest requirement. We do however request that you promote the show as you would any professional show. An active and engaged audience makes for a better show for everyone involved. So try to bring out your people to cheer you on! 

Laughing Matters NYC is a great opportunity to get yourself in front of an audience. If you are interested, please contact us at

You can also check out our weekly open mic at Stella and Fly every Monday at 6:30 and 8:30!

Business Inquires:
