Keep comedy in the Cultural District!

Arcade is a 501(c)3 arts organization dedicated to profiding a space for artists, audiences, and students to engage with the art of comedy. The revenue we earn from tickets and classes helps those programs exist, but on-going donations and support from our community ensure that our organization can remain in our facilities in the heart of the Cultural District.
