Laugh Factory Hosts 41st Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner 

(Hollywood, CA) — The world-famous Laugh Factory Hollywood will host its 41st annual free Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, November 25th, with seatings at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. 

The Laugh Factory welcomes those who are away from home, as well as those who may be lonely, homeless, or simply in need of a warm meal and a laugh. Top comedians including Tiffany Haddish, Dane Cook, Craig Robinson and many others will participate. 

“The Laugh Factory is committed to creating a welcoming and joyous atmosphere for those who are unable to afford a Thanksgiving meal, or those who have nowhere to go for the holiday,” said Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada.

“Spending the Thanksgiving holiday alone is no laughing matter,” Masada added. “That’s why we are so excited to continue our annual tradition of providing dinner with all the trimmings and great comedy on Thanksgiving. This year, we will be able to serve up to 1,000 people in need.”

Proof of vaccination is required for this event, but Laugh Factory will provide unvaccinated individuals with a certificate to get free Covid-19 vaccinations or booster shots at El Proyecto del Barrio, Inc. clinics in the Los Angeles area. The Laugh Factory will cover the cost of their transportation to the clinic. Anyone who is unable to attend may also pick up a free vaccination certificate at Laugh Factory Hollywood.

Participants who are unvaccinated will receive a Thanksgiving meal to go and will also receive a free gift card to redeem their vaccination certificate at the clinic.

Those who redeem their Covid-19 vaccinations at El Proyecto clinics will be invited back to Laugh Factory Hollywood on Christmas Day for another holiday meal and receive a cash reward for getting their vaccination. 

Everyone attending the event will be required to observe Los Angeles County Public Health protocols by wearing a mask. The Laugh Factory will provide a mask to anyone who doesn’t have one. 

Masada encourages everyone to spread the word about this event, free vaccinations and cash reward. “Please invite anyone you know who is alone for the holiday to get a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and some comedy for their soul,” he said. “We know that laughter is healing, and we need laughter now more than ever after all we’ve been through.”
