The Color Collective is a comedy variety show featuring women and POCs in everything from music and dance to stand-up and sketch comedy, The Color Collective strives to be a show for all people, where we can tackle topics that typically aren’t (or can’t) be covered by others. Our goal is to make the audience laugh and see past our color or gender and to be sure that the point of view of minorities and women are always heard.

Inspired by In Living Color, Chappelles’s Show, and other variety shows of the past, we show that smart, unique comedy can come in all shades. We want to highlight artists that may not always get the same spotlight as others of a different color or gender. Taken from the website.

Will their relationship survive? Once again, this immersive theatre experience requires the audience to be in their birthday suits, but house rules require footwear.
