QED Comedy Laboratory

This week’s theme is TBA, but we’re sure you’ll love it when you decide what it is.

About QED Comedy Laboratory:

QED Comedy Laboratory is a regular, experimental comedy show on Monday nights at the Pilot Light created and masterminded by Matt Chadourne.

This is an opportunity for Stand-Ups, Improvisers, Sketch Performers, Writers, Actors, Musicians, and others to work together, get out of their comfort zones and demonstrate that they’re funny.

The shows are different every week with a fun, exciting or just plain weird theme that will challenge our performers and make you laugh. Like the QED Comedy Lab page on Facebook to keep up to date on each week’s new theme.

There is no cover charge. Donations are accepted.
