Tip Your Waitstaff by Mark Ridleys Comedy Castle

Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle has been in business 41 years and has survived the ups and downs of the economy, but this is different.  Our doors have been closed for weeks because of the COVID-19 virus. That is why we have joined numerous comedy clubs across the United States in bringing comedy fans together to Tip Your Waitstaff.

It is our hope that we receive a generous reply that will help our staff during this difficult time. I realize that this is a tough time for many, but together we can make a difference. All the money collected on our Go Fund Me page will go to our wonderful Comedy Castle staff. They are the backbone of Comedy Castle and we want to help them out until we can reopen our doors. We will be here when this pandemic is over to bring you more laughs.

Thanking you in advance for your generosity and kindness. We look forward to the time when we can safely reopen, and our showroom will be filled with your laughter.
