Comedians from across the country are donning their capes and performing live, April 25, 2020 at 7pm PST, via livestream to make the nation laugh as well as to raise money for small business.
Cosplay Comedy Assembles: is a unique show where professional stand-up comedians perform in costume and In-Character as your favorite heroes and villains. The show will be streamed online through Zoom, Facebook Live, YouTube and Twitch.
Viewing is donation based. Money will go to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC), who is helping Comic Retailers and their employees with medical expenses, eviction prevention, funeral expenses, disaster assistance, domestic violence survival, utility shut-off prevention, unexpected loss of household income, and more. A portion of donations will also go directly to the small businesses that host their comedy shows: Black Cat Comics in Burbank, CA and The Museum of Art & Digital Entertainment in Oakland, CA.
Donations can be made now. The lineup of more than 30 comedians include artists who have appeared on Comedy Central, Netflix, America’s Got Talent, and Last Comic Standing, as well as clubs all across the United States.
Cosplay Comedy launched in 2015 at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. The show has been featured at the Long Beach Comic Con, Phoenix Fan Fusion, LA Comic Con, The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, and the Great American Comic Con: Las Vegas.
