You can't go to see live comedy. But what if there was a comedy club in your living room?

Join us on Monday, May 4 at 9 o'clock  (Eastern). It's online since we're prohibited from going out. We call it (not so) live. We've got Jay Jurden, Steven Rogers & Eric Dadourian!

Here's the main page for the series where you can check out upcoming and past shows.

Or follow us on social media for the same:

not so live

Here's how it works:

  • Hit the "Join the interactive show" button or the "Join the livestream on YouTube" button (though that's much less fun) below at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, May 4 to join. You can RSVP and add to your calendar here or on Facebook.
  • Turn on your microphone and/or camera so we can hear everybody laugh and feel together (also: behave).
  • Our amazing comedians do 10 minute sets each.
  • You laugh a great deal.
  • Donate. We're not putting up a paywall since we want everyone to easily join but we'd appreciate your donating $5 (or more!). Everybody's gigs went poof so a bit of cash would be highly appreciated.

We also accept Venmo (, though they're weird about non-personal payments and so PayPal is better). Our account is @Stevan-Nicholas
