MAKE LAUGHS.  NOT WALLS!
"Laughter in the Park" (#LITP2018) is back for our twelfth season!    Hello NYC!  If you’re like us, you’ve been feeling pretty walled in lately by current events.  At NYLaughs.org, not only do we think happiness has no borders, but we also see building a wall against joy and goodwill as an impeachable offense.   

Starting Sunday June 24, #LITP2018, our free outdoor daytime summer comedy series comes to the rescue the only way we know how, by queueing up a roster of some of today’s leading voices in stand up comedy from late night shows, New York’s iconic clubs, and film and TV to perform in the afternoon throughout New York public spaces for a happier and healthier NYC!

We've got 5 weeks of free comedic performances in NYC Parks to break down any barrier to fun and to help restore and reinvigorate any New Yorker's battered inner humanity.  



But remember, NYLaughs.org is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. We are 100% funded by grants, sponsors and generous individual donors and we’d love for that list to include you!  

So when it comes to breaking down walls, stash those sledgehammers 'til Fall because brandishing your wallets and designer handbags will be more effective for anything we'll encounter.




We hope you will help us  make a difference by bringing laughter to the people.    Together we can form a stronger, happier, healthier NY.   Many thanks for your support! 

Your truly!

OUR HISTORY !
NYLaughs.org

Laughter in the Park
Laughter in the City
========================================




For over a decade our philosophy has been that laughter has the power to strengthen communities.  Relying entirely on private donations and corporate sponsorship, LITP has brought New Yorkers together while also helping to deepen an appreciation of standup comedy in its place among the New York arts spectrum.   Most importantly, we have made the art form accessible to all New Yorkers for free, encouraging a sense of community and goodwill through laughter.  NYLaughs promises to keep nourishing that sense of unity and optimism throughout this coming year... with pee-your-pants funny comedy for the masses!

NYLaughs has been honored, humbled and delighted to present such incredible artists such as Amy Schumer, Hannibal Buress, Michael Che, Roy Wood Jr.  and countless others of amazing talent who support our mission of community through laughter. Our series has presented shows throughout the city, all 100% free to the public.

Our shows have been featured in the NY Times to NY1 to The Wall Street Journal to TimeOut NY.  We've also won past grants from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and the NYS Council on the Arts via the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council nine  times!    We just won a grant from Washington Square Park and the NYC City Council, too!

So please, reader, answer our cry for support with your heroic donation!   Please be our hero!   Help us spread our message of “pee-your-pants funny for all” to New Yorkers in all different kinds of pants! 

========================================

NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver made his comedic debut on our stage! He later tweeted that "Laughter in the Park" is a great NY experience"!
