A Laugh for Every Occasion

While the Wilbur Theatre (mentioned above) isn’t a full-time comedy club (sharing the stage with musical artists and other performing arts), the quality of the comedic talent that schedules shows here makes it a staple of any evening in Boston. Whether a comedic, behind the scenes look at The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart, presented by the writers for The Daily Show, or a more traditional comic routine by the likes of Lavell Crawford, the well apportioned theatre offers the perfect prescription for anyone’s bruised funny bone. For a full-time comedy club in Boston, look no further than the Comedy Studio in Cambridge (less than 3 miles from downtown Boston). With enough built-in comedic fodder based on the Comedy Studio’s location on the second floor above a Chinese restaurant. While you enjoy your food that you picked up on the way upstairs, local comedians like Scott Carney may have something to say about the food and location in their act; chopsticks not required. The laid back environment at the Comedy Studio results from the owners / founders of the club being regular performers and excited about showcasing local talent. If you’re ready for a fun night of quality comedy with both new and old faces from around Boston and the world, the Comedy Studio is the place to go!

Boston Comedy’s Old Guard

Locals and visitors alike also enjoy an evening of comedy in Boston at Dick Doherty’s Comedy Den. Located in the financial district of Boston, this Boston comedy club icon lays claim to serving as the comedic launchpad for Dane Cook. Over 26 years of Boston comedy has taken place in this club and it shows; from the wait-staff to the act, the mood and ambience is everything a comedy club should be. Plus, the financial district empties out in the evenings, making traffic a breeze and parking a non-issue in a part of town packed with pubs.
