Studies have shown that people value experiences more than we value possessions. The pleasure we get from buying something new wears off very quickly but pleasurable experiences live on in our memory. A comedy show is a great, fun experience!

More than just clean comedy, Ivy Stand-up offers several features not available anywhere else- ask for details.

We work with only a select group of hand-picked pro comedians. From four Tonight Show hosts to patients & their families at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to embassies, senior citizens groups and even the U.S. Army War College— they’ve all loved our comedians!
And so will you and your congregation.

We work regularly with a few dozen professional stand-up comedians. Not hundreds and certainly not thousands- if somebody says they work with thousands of comedians how much do they really know about any of the comedians? Are the comedians keeping their acts up-to-date? The head of The Ivy League of Comedy is a stand-up comedian who works regularly with his comedian colleagues and appears along with them at almost all our shows. He knows how to structure a line-up, whose material works best with, or conflicts with, or overlaps with, who else’s. You don’t get that personal level of detail working with a big generalist agency.

Comedians are praised in the Talmud

Rav Beroka of Bei Hozae was often in the market of Bei Lapat.  There he would meet Elijah.  Once he said to Elijah:  “Is there anyone in this market who has earned eternal life?”
Elijah said to him: “No.”
They were standing there when two men came along.  Elijah said to him:  “These men have earned eternal life.”
Rav Beroka went to them and said:  “What do you do?”
They replied:  “We are jesters, and make the sad to laugh.”
