About Catch A Rising Star

catch_logo.pngCatch A Rising Star Comedy Clubs have been a tradition since 1972 when it opened its first club in New York City. Catch has an impressive roster of alumni: among them, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Rosie O’Donnell, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher, Richard Belzer, Ray Romano, Jon Lovitz, Chris Rock, Bob Saget and Robert Wuhl.

Our commitment to tomorrow's comedy stars has remained the same over our history, and continues today from four locations in Reno, NV, Providence, RI, Princeton, NJ, and Monticello, NY.

Mission Statement

Catch A Rising Star is a nationally known trademark and forum, recognized for over thirty-five years for launching the careers of some of America’s most popular and beloved television and film stars, top comedians, comic actors, musicians, directors, producers and writers.

There are only a few brand names that are so synonymous with comedy that when you hear them you immediately think of quality entertainment, talented artists, and funny star makers, i.e., Second City, National Lampoon, Saturday Night Live and Catch A Rising Star. “Catch” as it is affectionately called in the entertainment industry, first opened its comedy club doors in New York City in 1972.

Catch” is the only comedy club that has ever had two major network television specials produced about it. “Catch A Rising Star’s 10th Anniversary” on HBO and “Catch A Rising Star’s 25th Anniversary” on CBS. Both shows were commercial successes, packed with illustrious alumni of talent.

Catch A Rising Star has a well-established reputation, long-term relationships with talent, managers, agents, producers and network executives. The inherent synergy of these business initiatives help to create the finest comedy shows at “Catch.”

Catch A Rising Star’s reputation and commitment to excellence has made us a leader in the industry. The managing partners of Catch A Rising Star are each recognized for their extensive experience in entertainment and finance and are individuals considered to be the finest professionals in the industry. With this team’s emphasis on the development of the Catch A Rising Star trademark, nationally and internationally, Catch A Rising Star will continue to celebrate the esteem title of “the premier comedy & music club in the nation.”
