Support Pittsburgh’s home for comedy

Support Arcade at Home

Show some love for Arcade Comedy Theater during its shutdown due to COVID-19 by donating to our Arcade at Home fundraiser. The impact of this closure is immense, as Arcade is a bustling comedy community full of performances, events, classes, and rehearsals each and every week. During this hiatus, Arcade has had to cancel or postpone 149 primetime productions, 8 Penny Arcade children’s shows, 25 class shows, 7 corporate events and rentals, 23 workshops, 158 classes, 4 kids camp class sessions, 2 birthday parties, 4 Pop-Up Nights, and 140 rehearsals. 

Your continued support and sharing of this page throughout the shutdown makes a huge difference each week. You’ll notice there is an option to set recurring monthly donations after you click the “Make A Donation” button–if you are financially able to do so, setting up a monthly donation offers us a way to monitor donation income in a stable way to help plan for our future.

Arcade at Home also has several other programming-specific campaigns to check out:
Thank you for your help! We look forward to seeing you in person at the theater again soon.

Help give Pittsburgh more laughs

We’re a non-profit comedy theater!
Arcade is a non-profit theater, which means that we exist to serve the community as an affordable, accessible entertainment option in the Cultural District, funded not only by ticket sales and classes, but through grants and donations from individual donors. Your support helps grow new, local comedy programming in Pittsburgh!

Donations can help:
Much like other theaters and museums in Pittsburgh, the cost of a ticket only covers part of the operations of the organization and cost of a production. Donations help cover the cost of artist pay, larger theatrical productions, outreach performances, and special projects like our Penny Arcade “Pay-As-You-Wish” option so any family can attend. Make an instant, tax-deductible, secure donation online via our donation page on GiveGab via the “Donate to Arcade” button. You can use any major credit card to give directly to Arcade Comedy Theater. You can also choose to make a recurring monthly donation to the theater!

Your support contributes to Arcade’s proud distinction as the Cultural District’s most reliably affordable entertainment option, and allows us to explore bolder, more innovative and dynamic comedy programming. We believe that laughter makes communities stronger and individuals better. With 9 different shows a week across two stages, every week of the year, your support creates an immediate impact on the Arcade community.

Give safely and securely to Arcade without leaving this page using the Give Gab donation button below. You’ll also seen an option to make your donation recurring!

Send a donation in the mail

You can also make your donation via check – which allows Arcade to receive 100% of your donation, without paying any credit card fees. Please make all checks payable to Arcade Comedy Theater.
