People Of Comedy is produced by POC comedians, and delivers diversity of thought. We strive to integrate all styles of comedy into one show and one comedy scene, without segregating by gender, color, or orientation. Our impressive line up of performers have been seen on Comedy Central, Just For Laughs, Epix, Fox, Hulu and Netflix! Come see a line up like never before and a portion of the proceeds will go to a great local organization!

Proceeds from November 2, 2018 were donated to “Check Yo Self”, a program benefitting at-risk students with positive messages through hip hop.
A portion of the proceeds from April 12, 2019 were donated to the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (www.ilcm.org) a nonprofit agency providing immigration legal assistance to low-income immigrants and refugees
