The original outpost of the Comedy Works franchise (now with a second location south of town) is underground, but the acts the club presents aren't. The cavernous and oft-cramped room hosts many of the comics who have regularly cozied up to Jay, Dave and Conan (Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr, Ellen Degeneres, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle among them), as well as local standup guys and gals.

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? The Comedy Works may be celebrating its 25th birthday this year by bringing in one big name after another, but the club stays fresh by giving amateurs a chance, too. And there are no hours more amateur than Tuesday's New Talent Night, when comedy guru Deacon Gray shepherds about fifteen newbies through brief sets. Not only does New Talent Night give untried comics a chance to perform before a real audience and develop skills, but Gray gives... More »
