Are the 2's terrible? What are the 3's? Whatever. Doesn't matter. We're pumped. DSI Comedy Theater turns THREE next month and we're excited about new shows debuting, the special guests, and Halloween! Should Halloween be a different article? Maybe.

Even some Carrboro residents STILL admit to not knowing exactly where we are, BUT what exactly has happened since we opened our doors in October 2005?

DSI has produced over 1000 comedy shows featuring over 200 local performers, some shows for ALL ages and some not ;) Our Training Center has enrolled over 600 students and, through partnerships with The ArtsCenter and Carolina Friends School, we have had an opportunity to teach over 800 young comedians through our Summer Camps and Afterschool programs. DSI's High School program grows into its 2nd year. Re-focused for 2008-2009, the newly formed CSz High School League trains 16 local students for comedy competition.

Our 7th Annual Comedy Benefit, Y LAUGH was a huge success for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA, pushing our 2008 fundraising total to $3500. DSI has stepped up to raise money for the Carrboro Parks Project, pledging $4200 in a Challenge Grant to fund an 18-hole Disc Golf course at Anderson Park (it's still going!). We have supported the Carrboro Music Festival, Carrboro Film Festival, Africa Rising, Barack Obama Campaign, Foundation Fighting Blindness, Community Independent School, Youth Script Writing Festival, and lots more.

ALL Because You have been there to Support DSI.
