About Nowhere Studios

A New Stage in the Digital Age

In the early days of 2020, as the world grappled with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing cancellations of live events, a fresh and innovative comedy venue emerged from the ether: Nowhere Comedy Club. Reinventing live touring, performers and audience alike can now enjoy a ticketed, one night only live show, but without having to leave the house.

This enabled our audiences to enjoy live ticketed entertainment in a much more accessible and affordable way. And creating for the first time a live audience comprised of people from around the world, in their homes, yet somehow all together at the same time.

Nowhere recreates the energy and experience of going to a live in-person entertainment venue.

And having now rebranded to NOWHERE STUDIOS, we are expanding our offerings from mostly just standup comedy and live podcasts, to include live events of all kinds. Game shows, talks, meet and greets, debates, talk shows, live music, and all kinds of experimental and interactive formats.

Join us for a show, and be part of this unique live entertainment revolution. Let's celebrate creativity, and the power of connecting without the limits of geographic location. We are all one planet. So let's enjoy a live show together!

Our Origin Story

As entertainment venues around the globe closed during the pandemic, the livelihood of comedians instantly disappeared, as did any sense of community and a place to go blow off some steam for people all around the world. So veteran comedian and TV host Ben Gleib came up with an idea that would solve for all these problems: The world's first digital comedy club, where the audience can keep their camera and mic on, so you and the performers hear the laughter, and you get the energy that full sensory experience brings, coming very close to the feeling of being there in person. He went to his friend, veteran comedian Steve Hofstetter, with the idea, Steve instantly got it, they became co-founders, and Nowhere Comedy was born.

Nowhere was born out of necessity and a passion for keeping laughter alive. Launched in April 2020, it became a beacon for comedy enthusiasts worldwide, reimagining the live comedy experience for the virtual realm.

Virtual Laughter, Genuine Connections

Breaking free from the confines of brick-and-mortar, Nowhere Studios embraced the virtual medium, producing our shows on top of the Zoom platform to deliver laugh-out-loud performances, directly to your living rooms. But it wasn't just about bringing you live comedy. Our club has been a melting pot of diverse comedic talents, hosting a spectrum of artists ranging from emerging voices to industry stalwarts, and the biggest names in comedy, including Bill Burr, Sarah Silverman, Mike Birbiglia, Zach Galifianakis, Nikki Glaser, and legends like John Cleese of Monty Python.

A Unique Comedy Experience

Beyond just passive viewing, Nowhere Studios has been an innovator in interactive entertainment. Our platform offers varied experiences - from general admission that let you enjoy the show and be seen and heard by the performers, to VIP tickets that bring you post-show meet-and-greets, and intimate Q&A sessions, allowing a direct and personal connection between performers and their audience.

Bridging Gaps & Connecting People

Nowhere Studios is more than just a virtual comedy venue; it's a testament to the resilience and adaptability of entertainment in challenging times. It underscores the time-tested idea that humor finds its way, no matter the circumstances. In an era marked by social distancing and isolation, we've bridged gaps, connected people, and spread laughter, joy, and community.

Some of our audience members from different parts of the world have even started dating, and gotten engaged!
