Pay Gap

Comedy Tour

In 2019, a new Twin Cities comedy festival announced an all-male lineup for their debut show. In response, we started our own comedy tour. We feature performers from groups that are underpaid in addition to underrepresented. Of course, it’s called the Pay Gap because women still earn 80% of what men do, and lineups are still dominated by white men.
