Boston Comedy Clubs Overview

Wilbur Theatre - Comedy Club | Concert Venue | Music Venue | Theater in Boston

The history of comedy in Boston goes back a long ways as some of the best comics in the world have broken their bones at some of the great Boston comedy clubs.

For starters, consider the list of legendary comedians who got their start here: Louis C.K., Denis Leary, Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, Dane Cook, Amy Poehler, and many, many others.

With all the stellar comedy clubs in Boston, it’s not that surprising to see such talent come out of the city. One of the top spots in Boston is Improv Asylum for sketch and, yes, improv, while Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy has been open for more than two decades and has seen big-time stars grace its stage for long stand-up sets. The Comedy Studio in Cambridge, meanwhile, is a favorite of Harvard students and a cheap spot for great, edgy comedy.

The comedy clubs are fun any night and are perfect places for daters, birthday partiers, bachelorette parties, or just hanging with friends while looking for big laughs.

So if you want to bust your gut for a couple of hours while listening to some of the best comics in the world do material on politics, sex, relationships, and current events, then check out the great comedy clubs in Boston for an unforgettable night.
