Building Community Through Laughter
DNA’s Comedy Lab wants to build a community of people who love to laugh. Help us, help you.
SUPPORT LIVE COMEDY IN SANTA CRUZ
DNA has produced several thousand comedy shows in Santa Cruz. Most of them have been free. The idea of a comedy club still lingers and we are always looking for partners who are interested in the same dream. DNA’s Comedy Lab exists virtually in your heart, mind and soul and we are always looking for new spaces to build community through laughter. If you have some money you’d like to throw our way, please do, everything goes to paying comics and making our comedy scene stronger.

“I’m so happy I started doing comedy in Santa Cruz as I feel the crowds here are among the best in the Bay and beyond. Very excited for DNA’s Comedy Lab to add even more entertainment and fun to the absurd antics that Santa Cruz has to offer.”
“To quote Leslie Nielsen in the movie Airplane, ‘I just want to say good luck, we’re all counting on you.’ ”
“I started my comedy career in
Santa Cruz. I owe everything to DNA, his events, and the community there.”
“Nothing makes sense anymore!”
“Santa Cruz is known for being the home of weirdos, surfers and hippies. What better place to contain them all than a comedy club?”
“DNA has been putting on great shows and an awesome festival for years, and headlining some of us long before others caught on. When it’s not on a joint, he’s got his finger on the pulse!”
