The Creek and The Cave has given comedy a home. We call the place our clubhouse.  We have Thanksgiving here.  The Creek is where we come when we have an idea that is "so crazy it might just work."  The Creek is where we come when we need a friend, a laugh, a drink.  But most importantly, we come to the creek to become better comedians.

When we talk about The Creek and The Cave we find ourselves saying, "The Creek has everything we need."  And that's almost true.  On New Year's Eve, with the help of roughly sixty volunteers from the comedy community, Rebecca revealed a newly renovated theatre.   There were plans for more drapes, more lighting, and most importantly, a marquee.

A group of us got together, Nick Turner, James Adomian, Sean Patton, Annie Lederman, Rebecca Trent, Sara Benincasa, Pat Dixon, Marcus Parks and Robert Dean and decided to put this project together in hopes of raising enough for a Marquee, advertising, and promotions.

We want word to get out. We want audiences in the seats without turning this place into bringer shows and $20 covers.  The shows are free, the stage time is free, there are no barkers on our corners and the artistic freedom that we experience here is literally unparalleled.  Help us finish our clubhouse.  Please help us put our name in lights.
