ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

The Comedy Spot is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Sacramento’s first comedy theater featuring improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy shows and classes. The Comedy Spot also produces original videos, short films, and comedy-related events, and is Northern California’s largest comedy school. 

Our mission is to provide a third space, beyond home and work/school where people can connect to one another, escape adulting, be creative, and celebrate each others’ diverse backgrounds and stories. Sacramento Comedy Spot is a community that celebrates otherness and aims to connect people through comedy classes, shows, and events. We want to inspire students and performers to challenge themselves, make a statement, and tell their story through comedy. 

The Comedy Spot was born out of a desire to provide a home to comedians who felt alienated by conventional comedy clubs. What initially served as a sanctuary for improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up grew into a place where every misfit comedian can find acceptance, encouragement, and support; a place to create and thrive, where outcasts are celebrated.

Our fans come first. Whether you are a comedy school student or just enjoy watching our shows, we are committed to creating an unforgettable experience just for you. We don’t believe in “two-drink minimums” and ticketing fees. We are here for our audience and fans. Without you, the Comedy Spot wouldn’t have a place in our community. We are dedicated to treating you like part of our comedy family, not just another customer passing through.

The fundamental principles of the Comedy Spot revolve around our students, performers, and fans. We want to give our students support and a place to learn and thrive. We want to empower performers to express themselves authentically. We want to provide fans with not just exceptional comedy performances, but unforgettable experiences. We endeavor to develop shows and classes that resonate with a wide spectrum of audiences, embracing diverse backgrounds and narratives. 

Connection. Inclusion. Empowerment. Entertainment. 
More than “just a comedy club”.
