Wilbur Theatre Information

The Wilbur Theatre is probably one of the strangest places in the nation to see a comedy show – raunchy jokes don’t generally get told in a historical brick building that dates back to 1914 with sweeping red curtains and a glittering chandelier. The theater became the new home of Boston’s Comedy Connection in 2008, and since then, the likes of Louis CK, Pauly Shore, Joel McHale, Kathy Griffin, and David Spade have all done their best to lighten the mood of the serious setting.

The venue also hosts the occasional musical performance, with past shows at the Wilbur Theatre including the xx, Wu-Tang Clan, and Blondie. A seating capacity of 1,200 makes it one of the largest comedy venues in the city, and since it’s located in the theater district, it’s easily accessible via the MBTA Red, Orange, and Green lines.

While limited concessions are available in the lobby, people who really feel like getting their dinner and drink on do it at one of the nearby lounges before or after the show. Combining irreverent comedians and lofty architecture, a comedy show at the Wilbur Theatre is a unique experience.

The Best Seats at the Best Prices
Moss L. May 14, 2013
The Wilbur Theatre provides not only the best comedy and music acts currently trending worldwide, but ensures a good time at a fair price. The Wilbur posts their shows months in advance to provide priority seating to first come first serve customers. If you forget to get a seat in advance, no problem! The ticket office sells tickets right up until the last minute and guarantees a good seat. Many of the performers sign autographs and take photos at the end of their show which always adds value and great memories to a wonderful Boston experience.
Always a Great Night Out!
Effie O. May 14, 2013
The Wilbur Theater is a great new home for Boston's "Comedy Connection." The venue hosts some of the biggest names in comedy from Lisa Lampanelli to Robert Kelly. Tickets are very reasonable and the space is very clean. The seating is very tight so be prepared to be close to the people sitting at your table. The Wilbur offers validated parking if you drive in and if you take the T it's an easy walk. Make this the highlight of your night or catch a night show after dinner.
