Over the last year, several live comedy venues in New York have closed. Many of the shows featuring the city’s most innovative acts have had to find another home. Often times that means doing shows at coffee shops, bowling alleys, and, sometimes, in a living room.
Luca Lounge is one of those out-of-the-way places that currently houses many great comedy shows featuring acts such as Janeane Garofalo, Fred Armisen, Bill Burr, Judah Friedlander, Reggie Watts, John Mulaney, Lizz Winstead, Donald Glover, Kurt Metzger, Joe DeRosa, Kumail Nanjiani, Baron Vaughn and more. However, Carol Hartsell, a producer and editor of Huffington Post Comedy is leading a Kickstarter campaign to improve the back room of Luca into a legitimate comedy venue.
As independently produced comedy is becoming increasingly integral to the industry, we’re urging you to donate some bucks so that they can meet their reasonable goal of raising $8,000 in the next month.
