Comedy is for everyone.

We’re changing the face(s) of comedy—that’s the whole point of GOLD. So we want to make extra sure that people from underrepresented backgrounds, and under-funded bank accounts, have access to what we do. Once per quarter we dedicate a portion of our membership spots to funny fellowships. These folks get 50% off ($150) one year of membership in GOLD ($300), with full access to everything included. We can’t guarantee that every interested applicant will receive a fellowship, but you can apply again the following quarter if you like. Fellowships are awarded and announced on the first date of every quarter.

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

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

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!
