Catch” is the only comedy club that has ever had two major network television specials produced about it. “Catch A Rising Star’s 10th Anniversary” on HBO and “Catch A Rising Star’s 25th Anniversary” on CBS. Both shows were commercial successes, packed with illustrious alumni of talent.

Catch A Rising Star has a well-established reputation, long-term relationships with talent, managers, agents, producers and network executives. The inherent synergy of these business initiatives help to create the finest comedy shows at “Catch.”
