She Makes Me Laugh was started in 2016 for women and by women, providing a platform for the funniest female performers in comedy to have their voices heard. The first She Makes Me Laugh show took place in a yoga/dance studio in Murray Hill. There was pizza and wine, and the event was a huge success — more than we ever imagined it to be. The show has only grown since its inception, taking place every month on the mainstage at The Peoples Improv Theater, and has been featured in The New York Times, Time Out NY, and The Skint, among other publications.
As the show has provided countless hours of stage time for funny women that we admire and champion, it’s now taken on a life of its own within the comedy community. This fall, the producers of She Makes Me Laugh are bringing back the She Makes Me Laugh Comedy Festival for it’s third year, featuring comedians, storytellers, characters, improvisers, and more. We look forward to welcoming female and non-binary performers to our the third annual She Makes Me Laugh Comedy Festival!
