Wear It or Give It!
The majority of our programming is Pay-What-You-Can, which means we rely on additional support through your contributions to make our shows the best they can be and continue offering them at the low price of whatever audience members can afford. Eventually we want to make our education programming Pay-What-You-Can as well. Support us by gifting at Venmo (@laughingstockchicago), or on Ko-Fi. Additionally, we now have merchandise available at Spreadshop.
