The Mission
The Veterans of Comedy is a group of military veterans and veteran comedians who have chosen to represent and support talented veterans who desire to share their gifts with the world.

Whether it is performing for the troops on military bases across the world, giving back to the veteran’s community, showcasing those dedicated to represent warriors worldwide or just offering special events to bring that unique style of entertainment forged through years of military service, The Veterans of Comedy, brings veteran comedians to the front lines of the entertainment stage.

We know the military and veteran community because we have lived it.
