THE STORY



"For a really long time, I was treading water just trying to stay above the surface in the seemingly mysterious world of making money at comedy. The Martin Grant was a life preserver. Since being award the grant I've appeared on television 12 times and booked tons of work at clubs and venues that I've never performed at. I am leagues closer to being where I want to be."
-2015 winner Brett Druck

"The Martin Grant came at a time when I wasn't sure that I was cut out for stand up. But after being selected out of the hundreds of applicants I experienced a rush of confidence and purpose. The money gave me the financial cushion I needed to keep my nose to the grindstone. Now I perform regularly around Los Angeles, produce independent comedy shows that keep the scene healthy and was even selected for America's Got Talent. I feel like receiving this grant was a pure stroke of luck and now my responsibility is to earn the headstart it has given me and pay it forward to my fellow comedians."
-2016 winner Wyatt Gray
