This is not a political event! The first goal of Comedy for Peace is to show everyone that we can very easily collaborate, share the stage, have fun and laugh at ourselves, without any politics involved. It is hard times, but we have to stay together and believe in a better future. Join us for a night of great comedy and hope. Comedy For Peace is an accessible, funny, fun, and meaningful show that brings diverse Interfaith communities together with the belief that we can make a difference through the art of comedy.
