Billy Sunday once said "if you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere" and the great theologian Karl Barth said, "Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God." We started the West Pines Comedy Room to bring joy and laugther into our community because we saw how divided our country had become. It's amazing how laughter brings everyone together!
To be able to laugh, to have humor and to have fun are all tremendous forms of resistance, of showing love/compassion and affirming life in a time where depression, anger, sadness and disasters are mounting.
Every month, on the third Thursday of the month, we host the comedy show in Pembroke Pines. Once every few months, we also make it a Comedy with a Cause night by highlighting an area charity and raising a minimum amount of money.
We do not meet in November and December.
