About Us

THE COMEDY PROJECT is a comedy theater and moonshine bar in Grand Rapids’ vibrant Westside Business District! We feature improv, sketch and comedy variety shows, a comedy training center and private event hosting.




In 2016 we launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and it became clear that Grand Rapids wanted this to exist almost as badly as we did.


With the help of our Kickstarter supporters as well as a ton of other volunteers and businesses who pitched in, we were able to secure a great building in a great neighborhood. We literally couldn’t have done it without all of them. (We listed as many of them as we could remember under “Friends of TCP”.)


In 2019, THE COMEDY PROJECT opened its doors!


As time passes, our history will become more detailed and rich to the point where you will start scrolling down and then quickly decide, “Oh, I think I get it. There’s no way I’m reading all of this.”
