About the 3036 Elm Project
If you’ve been to Dallas Comedy House at our original location on Commerce Street, or at our second location on Main Street, you have undoubtedly felt a sense of energy and community that is contagious. As we finalize 3036 Elm Street, we are excited to capture that same spirit in an elevated environment. Working with Gensler and Green Mark Build, our 3036 Elm Street location will have unique design elements and intentional flow so our environment matches our performances.
Our corner lot, facing Baylor Medical Center and located at 3036 Elm Street, will be a welcoming fixture to the Deep Ellum neighborhood.
Purchasing naming rights
Leave your mark on our new location and purchase naming rights! By purchasing naming rights to spaces and items at the 3036 Elm Street location, you are helping support Dallas Comedy House’s mission of growing and fostering a creative community, and igniting a passion for the comedic arts in Dallas. As we prepare to launch fully into this second decade of business, your support will help us support our students with scholarships and a state of the art facility, expand our offerings with equipment for online content, and ensure Dallas Comedy House continues to be a thriving hub for comedy in North Texas. As a “thank you” for donating, you will receive complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and a special tour and reception at our new facility, as well as a written thank you on social media and our website. Below is information on items available for purchase.
Naming Rights: The Small & Large Theaters
Our new space boasts two theaters with more capacity and visibility than ever before. You can read more about the theater naming rights by clicking here. If you or your company are interested in naming rights for one of our theaters, please reach out directly to Amanda Austin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We’ve got 99 problems, but a mic named Mike ain’t one. In our brand new podcasting space there will, of course, be microphones. These microphones are up for naming rights with one stipulation: they must be named after someone named Mike. Microphones will be labeled with the dedicated Mike name with a very official label maker.
In our new full kitchen and restaurant we’ll be needing a lot of official mugs. Send us a photo of you (or your group) to be placed opposite a Dallas Comedy House logo on a 15 oz coffee mug for use in our restaurant. Your mug will remain on the mug so long as the mug is intact. Replacement mugs will be ordered if a mug breaks within the first year of 3036 operations.
Our new beer garden needs seating, and what better way to make your mark than to purchase the naming rights to a brand new picnic table. Naming rights for picnic tables last until the tables are no longer functional (so, a very long time).
For less than $10 a week, you can have a guaranteed seat at our new bar. There is only ONE designated seat available for purchase. The purchase comes with a plaque and guarantee that when you mosey up to the bar, we will boot anyone sitting in your spot so you can take a load off. Naming rights for the designated seat at the bar is valid for one year from the time of the 3036 grand opening.
Name it after yourself, your group, or dedicate it to someone else. These 1”x4” plaques can contain up to three lines of engraving, 30 characters per line. Plaques will be prominently displayed at 3036 for the duration of our lease with a “thank you.”
Fancy new classrooms need fancy new names. You can purchase the naming rights to one of our four training center rooms, which will house classes in our training program as well as corporate workshops and summer camps. The classroom name will be prominently displayed and visible to all walking through the halls of Dallas Comedy House. That includes people coming to see shows! Now that our Training Center and Theater are in the same building, everyone will see your classroom. Naming rights for Training Center Classrooms are guaranteed for 5 years or through the first term of the lease, with the option to renew at market price.
One of the most exciting additions to our new space at 3036 Elm Street is a podcast studio. The studio will be home to DCH produced podcasts, as well as a community resource for aspiring podcasters to launch their content. By purchasing the podcast studio naming rights, you or your company receive brand recognition: not just through the signage with your name, but also on our website and mentioned on every DCH-produced podcast recording from the studio. Naming rights for the podcast studio is guaranteed for two years, or 100 episodes - whichever comes later - with the option to renew at market rate every two years.
Our new location at 3036 Elm Street will have something DCH has never had before: a large outdoor patio and beer garden for hanging out and pop-up shows! This beer garden can be named after you or your company and be seen by all who enter the garden. By purchasing the beer garden naming rights, you receive brand recognition: not just through the signage with your name, but also on our website and online calendar. Naming rights for beer garden is guaranteed for five years, or through the first term of the lease, with the option to renew at market rate.
Please note: Dallas Comedy House is an LLC and these purchases are not tax deductible, but rather a gift to help support our new theater and live comedy. The DCH family really appreciates your support of our new move.
While DCH promotes creativity of the written and spoken word, we do require the content of the naming rights to any of the aforementioned items to remain clean so that all of our customers can enjoy it for years to come.
