The Comedians Assistance Fund
MPTF’s Comedians Assistance Fund provides a safety net of social services to comedians including emergency financial assistance, counseling and referrals, health care and insurance guidance, senior care, and more. For nearly 100 years MPTF has been committed to taking care of our own by providing life-changing assistance to our entertainment industry family.
As part of Comedy Central’s new commitment to drive culture change on mental health Clusterfest and Comedy Central are asking talent agents and managers to donate at least $25 to MPTF’s Comedians Assistance Fund to receive tickets to Clusterfest. We encourage you to give generously to further support addressing mental health challenges in the comedy community.
To refer a client to the Comedians Assistance Fund please reach out to MPTF at 323-634-3888
