We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

We Want the Funny



We listen to you, devoted readers. We always want to know what we're doing well, and what we could be doing better. And here's one of the things I've heard: We're not doing much to cover the local comedy scene. 

Granted, it's not a huge scene; there are few venues for local comedians. But if there's talent out there, we want to know about it. It's just not always easy to know who's opening or MC-ing for a billed headliner.

Here's how you can help us: If you're a local comedian who knows about an upcoming gig -- or a friend of a local comedian who knows about an upcoming gig -- let us know. Email me at scottr@cityweekly.net with bookings, or register and create your own CityWeekly.net blog. Over the next several weeks, we'll be checking out the local scene with an eye towards an upcoming feature highlighting the best in local comedy. Heaven knows right now we could all use a laugh.
