Dry Bar Unscripted is the world’s first platform for improv comedy specials, and the sister channel to Dry Bar Comedy—the world’s largest library of clean comedy specials, with over 4 billion views.
Improv comedians have delighted stages all around the world for the past half century, and with your help, we can bring the best into the Dry Bar family.
WHAT THE FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR
Creating a successful online comedy platform requires a volume play that traditional TV networks just don’t do.
If we went to Hollywood or Netflix, the most they would give us is a 10-episode run (if we’re lucky). How many 1-season TV shows have you seen flop over the years? The Hollywood model is too risky.
To give Dry Bar Unscripted the best chance to become a smash hit*, we’ll need to produce a lot of improv comedy specials.
Before Dry Bar Comedy became the largest online library of stand-up comedy specials, generating over a billion views a year and millions in streaming revenue, it was a small startup, just like Dry Bar Unscripted.
Dry Bar produced over 75 original comedy specials before it tested into a profitable financial model.
With your investment, we can produce hundreds of improv comedy specials, reducing the financial risk, and greatly increasing the likelihood of a return on investment over time.*
*there is no guarantee Dry Bar Unscripted will experience the same success as Dry Bar Comedy
*likelihood of any return is speculative and is not guaranteed

If the show profits, you profit (the more shares you owns, the more you make)
We will begin production as soon as a few weeks after the close of the raise. Just like Dry Bar Comedy, we will roll out new comedy specials on a regular basis. We expect to release several this year! Plus, we have our first special with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood available to watch for free right now.

You may invest as many times as you would like until you reach your investment limit under Regulation CF
As part of regulation crowdfunding, Issuers are required to file semi-annual financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These are available for investors to view on the Issuer's SEC filing page. Issuers are also responsible for sending out investor updates with information about investments and the company.
To stay up to date on the Issuer's project, you can also follow them on social media. Check out the specific Issuer's offering page to find more information about where to find them.
Every country has its own securities laws. We are offering this Regulation CF round under the laws of the US and so we know what we need to do to allow US citizens to invest and be compliant with those laws. We don't have the resources to be able to identify and comply with the securities laws in other jurisdictions, so we limit investments to US citizens.
Dry Bar Unscripted, Inc. is selling up to 10,000,000 Preferred Units in this Regulation CF round for $.50 per Unit.
Yes. As an owner of Preferred Units, you are entitled to your share of profits of Dry Bar Unscripted enough to both create future episodes and make distributions of available funds as determined by Dry Bar Unscripted, Inc. in their sole discretion. Before making any distributions to the Common Shareholders, distributions will first be made to the Preferred Shareholders until they receive a cumulative return of one hundred twenty percent (120%)% of their initial capital contribution. Once the Preferred Shareholders have received a total of one hundred twenty percent (120%) of their initial capital contribution, further profits will be distributed in proportion to all Shareholder’s Interest. "Share" means a portion of the Company's Membership Interests, including any Common Shares and Preferred Shares. All Shares represent an equal portion of Membership Interests. The amount of Membership Interest represented by a Share shall be equal to a fraction, the numerator of which is one (1) and the denominator of which is the number of all issued and outstanding Shares of the Company.
For phase 1 of our business plan, we’ll be following the same strategy as Dry Bar Comedy which has helped them generate over a billion views a year and millions in revenue. This includes streaming revenue, licensing deals, merchandise, and live tours. As we grow in tandem with Dry Bar Comedy, we will explore other monetization avenues such as additional original content, innovative technology that connects comedians to ticket sales from live audiences, brand deals, and advertising opportunities.
No. Investment in early-stage companies/shows is extremely risky, and you should consult with your independent financial advisor before making a decision on whether you want to invest. In any case, you should never invest more than you could afford to lose.
Unlike securities purchased on a stock market, such as the NYSE or Nasdaq, there is no public market for shares in Dry Bar Unscripted, Inc. Therefore, it is unlikely you will be able to sell your investment. However, you may receive distributions of cash from Dry Bar Unscripted, Inc. when it’s earned enough profit both to create future episodes and make distributions of available funds as determined by the directors of Dry Bar Unscripted, Inc.
Our ability to offer our Shares to the public is possible due to legislation known as the Jobs Act. This law limits the amount that investors can purchase based on your annual revenue and net worth. There is no limit, however, if you are an accredited investor. If you have additional questions regarding this limit, feel free to ask in our Q&A tool at the bottom of the main page of this offering.

There is no subscription plan to buy securities recurringly and all purchases of our securities are a one- time payment. Subscribers are simply other investors that have purchased the securities. A "subscription agreement" is a legal term for the contract between an investor (you) and the issuer (us), it details the offering of securities and explains your rights and responsibilities when deciding to purchase our securities. Please note that signing a subscription agreement does not guarantee we will accept your investment. Our Broker-Dealer is required to review investor information, including KYC (Know Your Customer) data, AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and OFAC compliance background checks. These checks or other risk-mitigating procedures we have in place could prevent us from accepting a specific investor's investment. Purchases not accepted will be returned in full to the subscriber.
