About

  •  ***NEW UPDATE: Any contribution over $15 gets you a FREE ticket to one of our shows!(Excludes special events- i.e. Opening night, holiday shows, etc)**** 

 ***COMPLETE**CONTRIBUTE WITHIN THE FIRST 72 HOURS AND GET YOUR NAME ON THE WALL OF OUR CLUB!**** 

Binghamton residents have been known to say things like, “I wish there was more to do here” and “Why haven’t the Comedy Crawl people opened a comedy club yet?” and "Is that the Sun?!!"

WE GET IT! And we agree. While we can't do anything about the Sun, we plan to solve the other two problems by opening Binghamton's first EVER comedy club!

After years of partnering successfully producing comedy with DoubleTree in Binghamton, we are ready to expand our relationship with them by opening our comedy club in what was once Zone 225 at DoubleTree! This partnership will allow each of us to do what we do best: DoubleTree will provide their outstanding food/bar and waitstaff, and we’ll design the space and bring in top-notch comedians from around the country. Together, we’ll create a perfectly blended comedy club, and an experience like no other!


For as long as we have been producing shows we have been planning our club. Whether it be writing down ideas we want to use or drawing concept art, we have  a closet full of notes! Here are some highlights from our vault of ideas you'll experience at our club:

  • We'll bring in comedians from our local and regional area, and national acts too!
  • Our house band, The Fake Band, will keep the shows lively with their sweet tunes!
  • A small library dedicated to our friend and fellow comedian, the late Maryanne Donnelly
  • A room designed specifically for comedy
  • And so, so much more!

Binghamton is our hometown, so we’ll be commissioning only local businesses and artists to help us create our space. On deck to help us transform our space into a completely unique and fully-immersive comedy club are:


Design: Stephanie DeAngelo, owner of the Black Sheep Shoppe, will be designing our space. From the ceiling design to the center pieces, she’ll provide her vision and touch.

Stage/Lighting/Sound design: Joe Roma, local professional tech/sound engineer, will be building our stage, and designing and installing our lights and sound. 

Sign: Emily Jablon, owner of Jablon Studios, will be designing two mosaic versions of our logo that will hang on the walls of our club!

Wall Art: Paul Kozlowski, legendary owner of the FAKE Gallery in L.A., will be commissioning his famous color swatches with you in mind (refer to rewards to get in on this!). His work has been seen at Cartoon Network headquarters, one of Sarah Silverman's Comedy Central specials, and in Bobcat Goldthwait's documentary, "Call Me Lucky."

Merch: Muckle’s Ink will be providing custom printed merch for our kickstarter AND provide all the merch for our gift shop at the club! 

Marketing: Kowala Creative, a digital agency based in Syracuse and owned by Binghamton native Nick Klenchik, will be providing our content design and management.

Theme Music: Local composer and playwright, Santino DeAngelo, will be composing the theme song for our club!

Here you can find the goodies you’ll be getting depending on which reward level you choose:

As you might expect, starting a business is not cheap, and while we are fortunate to have a great space at DoubleTree, there are still plenty of things we need to do to convert the space into a great comedy club. For example, a proper sound & lighting system are crucial to the success of a comedy club. So, here's where your money is going:


Lighting & Sound System: $4k

Tables/Chairs/Furniture: $3k

Signage & Décor: $2k

Stage Design & Build: $1k

Green Room Buildout: $1k

Kickstarter Fulfillment: $1k

Risks and challenges

Like any start-up, there are risks that can seem daunting to most, but we're no strangers to risk taking. Comedy Crawl started as a risk, and 4 years later it’s still a hit. We've worked extensively with DoubleTree, our lawyers and other business minds to make sure we cover all of our bases. That being said, should any issues arise that will effect the club or your reward, you'll know as soon as we know. Our first priority is you. We got your back!
