Truth in Comedy, or TiC for short, is a storytelling, stand-up comedy, and art show where humanity is the muse. It’s a unique experience. Three individuals will tell a very personal story from their life, aka their truth, where they will be very open, honest, and vulnerable. Afterwards, a comedian will perform a set inspired by the story.

Join the performers for this unique experience to see why no matter what we go through, we can always find something to smile or laugh about.
