Welcome to The Comedy Bar: The perfect place for a funny night out and an elevated comedy club experience.

Please click on the location you would like to visit for full show calendar and tickets.




We believe that sticking to the basics and doing them really, really well is the best path to success. It is exemplified in our name, our programming and even the venue itself. We offer great comedy, for a decent price, in a beautiful room that serves quality food/drinks with exceptional guest service. People don’t visit our venue just for the comedians on our stage, they come to us for a comedy club experience.

The Comedy Bar started out as a show in a downtown bar back in 2011. We quickly gained popularity and began to expand our programming schedule to meet the demand. In 2015, the club joined forces with Chicago staple, Gino’s East, in River North. In our current flagship, located downtown Chicago, we offer 7 days of stand up a week, a full menu of authentic Chicago food and in-house craft beer from Gino’s Brewing Company
