The professional cast is hosted by Walt Frasier (Billions, Blue Bloods, Friends of the People, Letterman, etc). Frasier co-founded the show in 2002. Since then EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH has entertained 6500+ audiences in Times Square and touring nationwide to colleges, corporate events and even K12 schools. (See full bio below)

OR Support these artists by self enriching yourself and take a class.

THANK YOU in advance for helping us create paid for for these amazing artists. The entertainment business is virtually dead until further notice in New York City. Broadway just announced it is shut down through September 1. Most of the professional arts were bragging about making a living solely as performers just a few weeks ago. We have no idea when NYC will be back to anything resembling normal. But we want to keep as many artists working as possible AND delivering the much needed laughs!

ONLINE COMEDY CLASSES with Walt Frasier

Drop by at $25/class, $75/four week session includes additional private coaching. We combine Improv and Stand-Up comedy to maximize training in performance, creative writing and critical thinking as well as public speaking, social skills, team skills and self confidence.
