The 9 Best Comedy Clubs in Massachusetts!
Did you know that comedy greats Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien grew up in Massachusetts? If laughter is what you need, check out one of these comedy clubs in Massachusetts. You can’t hold them responsible when your sides ache from those belly laughs, however. And you never know when you’re watching a future celebrity either.
Laugh, eat and drink while enjoying comedy shows by seasoned professionals as well as Massachusetts locals at Dick Doherty’s Beantown Comedy. The pub food isn’t half bad and the shows provide some of the best stand-up around.
Staging laughs since the 1970s, Nick’s Comedy Stop is a Massachusetts staple for great shows. The club isn’t fancy, but the bar offerings are ample. Nick’s doesn’t serve food, so eat before the show. Call about renting the place out for a private comedy show.
In addition to serving up some of the best Chinese food around, Kowloon Komedy—better known as the Kowloon—serves up comedy, too. One look at the autographed photos on the wall tells guests they’re walking where some of today’s comedy greats once walked. Check out a comedy show and be sure to have dinner, as the food is truly sublime.
