Opening all the doors

We’re here to change the face(s) of comedy. So we want to make extra sure that people from underrepresented backgrounds, and under-funded bank accounts, have access to what we do. So, once per quarter we dedicate a portion of our membership spots to funny fellowships. These folks get 50% off ($199.99) one year of membership in GOLD ($399.99), with full access to everything included. (We can’t guarantee that every interested applicant will receive a fellowship, but anyone can apply again the following quarter.) Fellowships are awarded and announced on the first date of every quarter.

Our need- and demographic-aware scholarships are open to:

  • Women
  • People of color
  • LGBTQ+ individuals
  • Folks without the means to afford full GOLD membership
  • Folks with disabilities
  • Veterans

Be part of the fun(d)!

So many of you have asked how you can help out GOLD. You are so nice! Here is how. You can make a one-time or quarterly/annual contribution to our Fellowship Fun(d). As we’re not a 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution isn’t tax-deductible, but you will directly make a difference in someone’s life and future. If you’re interested, just email us at and we’ll get it sorted. Thank you for your generosity and your commitment to making sure women/non-binary folks have the comedy skills they need to take over the world!

Thank you!

These folks are making it possible for more GOLDies to shine!
