Laugh While You Can is a small group of comedians in Boston who throw great shows each month for the benefit of a different charity. Whenever there's defunding, wherever your government can't reach, Laugh While You Can will be there. No jokes are left behind.

Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change. We reclaim thousands of bicycles each year. We create local and global programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation. Our programs mobilize youth and adults to be leaders in community transformation.

Our last show benefitted Bikes Not Bombs on Wednesday June 21st, from 6pm - 8pm at Midway Cafe in JP. 3496 Washington St, Jamaica Plain


Perhaps you’re busy on the night of our next event? We’d still love to have your donation. Please follow this link and give what you can, especially if you think someone like our current President might not do the same.

If you’re a comedian in New England and want to join us, we could use your time! Get out the word with us, and perhaps you’ll find yourself on one of our stages soon. Contact our flyering folks, or send a video to our booking team, by writing

Just so you know we’re on the up & up, here’s a peek into what we’ve done so far.
