Fine Line Comedy fosters inspiration-driven and experimental comedy that challenges performers and surprises audiences. Through comedy, we seek to reveal personal and universal truths, while putting on a smart and hilarious performance every time. Fine Line Comedy embraces comedic innovation and risk-taking. You’ll see things at a Fine Line show that you haven’t seen anywhere else. And, in the end, we’ll all laugh really hard.
