What is Our Philosophy?

At The Ruby LA, we believe YOU are funny. We believe YOUR VOICE is very interesting. We believe you have stories to share. We wanna know what makes you laugh? What lights you up? What are you passionate about? And how can we help you explore that?

We are all about comedy that punches up, comedy that shines a light. We love big issues and big ideas. We also like fart jokes. And a good banana peel slip. We are into comedy that explores whatever the hell you wanna explore! We are into badass shows, sweet shows, weird shows, and everything in between. We are here to create and curate comedy that is inclusive, feminist, intersectional, open-minded, and representative.

Yup, we teach, perform, and love improv and sketch! We also believe Hollywood is a wild and wonderful place, and it’s time to go beyond a traditional improv & sketch model.

We at The Ruby LA are here to give you a killer toolbox to support YOUR VOICE. Let’s discover how to write your pilot, how to market your brand, how to bring your stagecraft to life, how to be a leader, how to be a boss, how to better collaborate with other humans, how to make your brilliant ideas come to life out of thin air.

We believe in changing the gatekeepers, ignoring the naysayers, and making it happen for everyone. It’s time! You are perfect, you are enough, you are so bright, and you are so funny.

We are a feminist & inclusive comedy theater & school in Los Angeles, California, proudly founded with the values and ideals of intersectional feminism at the heart of everything we do.

We are The Ruby. And so are you.
