National Association of ComediansIt’s hard to pursue comedy full time, and even harder to find health coverage when you decide to go for it. Thanks to the National Association of Comedians, things are about to get a little easier for the working comic. The recently launched organization provides the opportunity for comics to purchase health insurance, as well as life, dental, accident, auto and more. It also offers a range of incentives such as discounts on CDs, DVDs, hotels and car rentals. Coverage is also available for small businesses in the comedy world.

The organization is a product of Uncle Vinnie’s and a Board of Trustees. Things just got up and running, so keep checking the NAComedy Website for updates.

    This sounds like a great idea.

    We could well use such an organization in Denmark, where I am full time comedian.
