Open Mic

$3
per month
Look -- a cute little open mic. It's in the basement and the floor is a bit sticky, but the mic works and post-show hang is tops. Welcome. 
  • Keep the lights on
  • Frequent updates and posts

Alt Room

$10
per month
Is it the backroom of a comic book shop? Maybe it's a rock venue on the weekends? Either way, it feels lovely and safe and that means it's time to get weird. And cynical. Bring it on.
  • Bonus video-related stuff including bloopers, drafts, and planning
  • Frequent updates and posts

Road Gig

$20
per month
We're out here hustling. Two nights here, three nights there. We can't always remember what city we're in, but these are workout rooms and our skills are getting sharp. Just try to avoid the bachelorette parties.

About Katie Mears

Howdy. 

I’m a comedy journalist living in New York City, and I make YouTube videos about stand-up comedy and comedy history. On my channel, we listen, laugh, and (sometimes) learn things.

By supporting me here, you're allowing me to continue to create original video essays on stand-up comedy and humor studies. The more I can make from my videos, the more time I can afford to dedicate to my channel to make more frequent (and more rad) videos.

For nearly a decade, I’ve been fascinated by stand-up comedy and the comedians who perform it. I’ve worked in comedy clubs, hosted a comedy themed radio show, helped write a book about stand-up, written articles, and interviewed some really lovely comedians. I love stand-up comedy and what it can teach us about the world and about ourselves. It's a weird, magical, little art form and it's a pleasure to continue to watch it grow. I can't thank you enough for your support. What a sweet little dream this is.
