Stomping Ground educates, entertains, and empowers the community – connecting people through comedy…and we won’t stop ’til everybody’s laughing

Stomping Ground is Dallas’ only non-profit theatre dedicated to comedy. And we do the things that comedy clubs and theaters do; we host live comedy shows that feature stand-up, improv, scripted comedy, and more. We also teach comedy classes for adults and classes and camps for children. Through our Improv for Work program, we host team-building and customized trainings using organizational psychology to companies and organizations all over the world. But what sets us apart from most comedy clubs is our Improv for Life program, where we use improv as a tool for mental wellness, social-emotional learning, and therapeutic purposes for unique populations. Led by Psychotherapist Andrea K. Baum, the Improv for Life Program offers classes and trainings for people caring for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, classes for people with anxiety and those on the autism spectrum, and many more.
