Comedy TING!

Saturday, July 25th, 2020 and August 1, 2020 
8PM to 9PM


Khalid Rahmaan (Conan) hosts a stand-up comedy show to benefit social change organizations every Saturday at 8pm EST live on Zoom!

About this Event

After grabbing an RSVP ticket, you'll receive an email receipt from Eventbrite that includes the Zoom showroom info. Please consider making a donation to @Comedy-Ting on Venmo or on Paypal. 25% of your generous donations for the July 11th show will go to Equal Justice Initiative, an organization that works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality.
25% of all donations will go to that week's designated social justice organization. The rest of your donation will go directly to the people making this show, both in front of the screen and behind the screen. Your donations are paying our performers for making you laugh, as they are without a regular source of income. This income will help them pay for the most basic level of living. 
Comedy TING is a weekly live digital stand-up comedy show hosted by Khalid Rahmaan (Conan) and Leif Enoksen (Beats Podcast). Every Saturday at 8pm Eastern, Khalid and Leif host a lineup of comedians from late night TV to raise money for social change organizations. Note: We do not censor our comedians and would not call this show "kid-friendly".
We're doing our best! Live comedy wasn't meant to be performed online for an audience in their tastefully decorated homes (we know how you do, playa). Of course tech issues will come up, but we're in great hands with our super producer Jordan Ashleigh. As with a live in-person show, we ask that you do not record the show or redistribute in any way. We want this to be a safe space for our performers and a special event for our fans. Lineups are subject to change. Thank you for being here!
Comedy TING is co-produced by Jordan Ashleigh and Khalid Rahmaan.
Please email with any questions.

Enjoy the show,
Terresa =)
