about us

Learn stand up comedy in a fun and supportive environment. Known as a community of comics, Laughing Buddha Comedy is the largest producer of Stand Up Comedy Shows and Open Mics in NYC with over 150 events a month.  Our comedy school has been featured on the front pages of the Wall Street Journal and the Tampa Bay Times, and named a top 10 Comedy Spot in NYC by USA Today.  We offer small classes led by professional instructors at a convenient location in Downtown Manhattan. We are the only major comedy school owned by a professional working comedian, Jeff Lawrence, and we include real stage time with our workshops, the only way to learn comedy.  

Our New Talent Industry Showcases have helped countless comics launch their careers and have featured stars of comedy including:                                 Marc Maron, Dave Attell, Jim Gaffigan, Janeane Garofalo, Gilbert Gottfried, Tracy Morgan, and Pete Davidson, among others.
