What is Don't Tell Comedy?

Do the comedians get paid?

Absolutely! All of our comics get paid. We love supporting the comedy community financially, and through quality stage time in front of good audiences. We would never ask anyone to perform for free. That would be doing a disservice to stand up comedy as an art form. Don’t Tell Comedy was started by and in most cities is run by comedians. It is extremely important to us that everyone is paid for gifting audiences with amazing nights filled with laughter.


How did Don't Tell Comedy Start?

Kyle KA, the creator of DTC, grew sick and tired of paying for a 2 drink minimum at comedy clubs. $9 for a Corona?! Kyle had so much fun at one of his friends backyard comedy shows that he started Don't Tell Comedy with the hopes of bringing top talent into fun, community settings where comedy lovers can laugh and hang out on a budget.


What happens at a Don't Tell Comedy show?

Guests are greeted by one of our positive, personable, and kind Don't Tell producers/comedians. Guests are free to mingle before the show and talk politics, gossip, or post complimentary photos on social media.

Guests are then encouraged to turn off or silence cellular devices so they can enjoy an all-star night of comedy. The lineup is a complete secret. You will find out who is performing when they are introduced to go up on stage.
