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.

The Welcome Project builds the collective power of Somerville immigrants to participate in and shape community decisions. Programs like these strengthen the capacity of immigrant youth, adults and families to advocate for themselves and influence schools, government, and other institutions.

Our next show is on Friday March 31st, at The Somerville Armory Cafe. Be there at 8:00 pm for the time of your life. Reserve your seat HERE. Our social media links are at the top of this page. 195 Highland Ave, Somerville


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.

Our February 2017 charity was Ceres. We raised a total of $321.00 for them. You made a difference!

Ceres harnesses the enormous power of key economic actors in order to achieve cutting-edge solutions to climate change, water scarcity, and other threats to the global economy. Together we can change the future!


Our January 2017 charity was RAINN. We raised a grand total of $1260.17 for them. If you donated even one dollar, THANK YOU!

RAINN is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HPE and, and carries out programs to prevent sexual violence and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.

One of the fine things we get to do at Laugh While You Can is collaborate. So in January, the monthly comedy showcase Broad Appeal is joining us in raising money for RAINN. Their show also takes place on January 13th, at the Armory Cafe in Somerville, and will be hosted by Christa Weiss. Check out their facebook event.
