In 2007, a group of Oklahoma comedians came together for one purpose: to bring world-class comedy home. OKC Comedy was born from the notion that Oklahoma could do better. Since that time, OKC Comedy has prided itself on booking America’s top talent. Comedians such as Paul F. Tompkins, Hannibal Buress, Doug Stanhope, Maria Bamford and Doug Benson are among a growing list of comedy juggernauts that are making their way to the Heartland due to OKC Comedy’s grassroots effort.
In producing top-notch comedy shows, OKC Comedy has also planted the seeds for what will become a better comedy scene. Pairing national headliners with great local acts, OKC Comedy fosters young talent. We provide opportunities for local comedians to grow into the comics they want to be, and our audiences get to witness this firsthand.
OKC Comedy is very much a part of our community. We support and are supported by local businesses. It’s because of our community that we’ve been able to grow at the rate we have. From our humble beginnings at open mics in small bars to hosting large scale comedy shows with world renown headliners, OKC Comedy is Oklahoma.
