Today is the Last Wednesday of the Month!
You know what that means! Discount on all classes (automatically applied at check-out), free improv class from 7-8, and ALL SHOWS are free for everyone! It's a great night to bring your friends and family and enjoy free comedy.
Performer of the Month!
Congratulations to Shahyan Jahani on being nominated and selected as the September Performer of the Month! Got a performer you want to celebrate? Nominate them here!
Refer Your Friends, Save Money!
For every two new students who register for classes and list you as a referral, you save 50% off your next class at DCH (wowewow!) That means if you have four funny friends register, you get a class for free! And, if your company books a corporate workshop or show with us thanks to your recommendation, you also get a free class. Share the laughter, earn class savings.

Today is the last day to register for classes beginning next week (Monday, August 27-Sunday, September 2)!
