Comedians! Catch A Rising Star has
formed a partnership with the
National Association of Comedians.
It is a unique organization that provides support
for working comedians. It's often difficult for a
touring comedian to find adequate Health Insurance
and other necessary services most
Human Resources Departments provide.
The NAC has leveraged the power of numbers
so that individual comedians will have access
to group discounts including health insurance.
As a member, you are part of a recognized
national professional association. Using the
National Association of Comedians, LLC logo on
your business cards, marketing materials and
web site will give you credibility and give your
career a boost. You will gain knowledge through
educational seminars and communication
with other NAC members with our members only
Comedian Member Dues: $19.99 per year.
