The Comedy Store Family Fund

The Comedy Store in partnership with MPTF

MPTF (Motion Picture & Television Fund) and The Comedy Store have partnered up to create The Comedy Store Family Fund with proceeds benefiting their employees and comedians. The Comedy Store, led by Chief Executive Officer Peter Shore, will be providing funding under a two-year grant and, in turn, MPTF will be supporting the initiative with a full-time social worker dedicated to the comedian community. Services will include emergency financial assistance, counseling and referrals, health care and insurance guidance, senior care, and more.

To donate, call (818) 867-1977

For 50 years, The Comedy Store has cultivated and celebrated the artistry of stand-up comedy. Founded by comedian Sammy Shore in 1972, the late Mitzi Shore took over the club in 1974 and turned it into the birthplace for a generation of comedians who began their careers on the Hollywood night club’s stage, many who went on to become stars. It is the first and greatest all stand-up comedy night club in the world.
