Training in Comedy, Serving the Community


We are as devoted to the craft of improvisation as we are to the delivery of service performances. Laughing Matters performance volunteers spend at least two-thirds of their time off-stage in rehearsal-based training. Rehearsals develop and continually refine the key competencies of improvisational theater, just as they provide performance volunteers an opportunity to explore and craft new games for their audiences. The unique considerations of the therapeutic setting frame all aspects of the training process.


We bring comedy to those in need

We recognize the power of humor to uplift the human spirit. Improv is a powerful means to bring laughter to those in in need.
