Meet The Founder

Marvellus Lucas

Marvellus Lucas, an African American and Assyrian Persian, was born and raised in the culturally rich city of San Francisco, California. His journey in the non-profit sector as an Outreach Community Coordinator in San Francisco has been both challenging and rewarding.

Marvellus' work involves connecting deeply with diverse communities, understanding their unique needs, and fostering programs aimed at creating meaningful change. However, his life took a significant turn in 1987 when he faced violent trauma, leading to a prolonged battle with PTSD. This experience, though harrowing, paved the way for a new chapter in his life.

This personal journey inspired him to create "LaffOff: Healing Through Laughter," a groundbreaking initiative that combines comedy with trauma treatment. At LaffOff, Marvellus and his team produce comedy shows that not only entertain but also provide a platform for healing and fostering black joy.

"Laughter is the best medicine for the soul."
