Zanies Comedy Club Information

Zanies Comedy Club is a stand-up comedy venue in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood. Opened in 1979 by Austrian immigrant Rick Uchwat, the venue has been considered one of the best clubs out there by comedians and audiences alike.

Zanies Comedy Club offers stand-up comedy and only stand-up comedy. A step away from the legend of Second City, with its improvisational and sketchy comedy shows, Zanies was a jumping off point for big-name performers such as Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Jerry Seinfeld, long before they were nationally recognized.

The building is impossible to miss, with a giant red and white ZANIES marquee over the doorway. Inside the basement club, small bistro tables fill the space, and hundreds of framed photographs line the walls, a kind of 30-year display of the history of comedy. A full bar provides drinks and a limited menu offers bar snacks during comedy shows at Zanies Comedy Club.

To demonstrate how new and unusual Zanies Comedy Club was when it debuted, on opening night in 1979, owner Rick Uchwat received a call asking what kind of comedy they had. Uchwat replied that it was stand-up comedy. After a long pause on the phone, the person responded, “You mean you don’t have any chairs?”

Zanies Comedy Club User Reviews

Average rating:
Good start for a date night but don't go hungry
Kara M. Nov 3, 2012
Zanies is a fun place to go if you're looking for something different to start off your night. The shows range from headliners to a variety show where 10 comedians each get a few minutes on stage. Unless you're familiar with the headliner, I suggest going to the variety show so you don't get stuck with a comedian who doesn't quiet match your sense of humor. If they really suck, you only have a suffer for a few minutes. The place is small and fills up quickly, especially on the weekend, so getting there as early as you can is a good idea and it's important to note that the price of admission includes a two drink minimum. Zanies does have a menu, but it includes mostly low-grade snack foods like ball park-style nachos and microwavable pizzas. I suggest saving your appetite for any of the other surrounding restaurants. Overall, Zanies is a fun alternative. The shows only last about an hour and Wells Street offers a variety of places to checkout before and after the show.
