The Comedy Shrine is a venue dedicated to producing and presenting a diverse array of comedic performers and formats which include stand-up, sketch, improvisation and overall great entertainment that is smart, funny and provocative. Our cabaret-style comedy club has two intimate rooms the ‘Improv’ Room and the ‘Stand-up’ Room with seating for 110 people for both along with a full service bar. See below for show listings.
Improv is an ensemble of actors performing scenes that they make up on the spot based off of suggestions given to them by the audience. The Comedy Shrine cast is made up of professional actors with backgrounds including iO, Second City, and Comedysportz.
Stand Up Comedy involves one comedian on stage at a time telling jokes that they have written out beforehand as a routine. Each show generally consists of a host, feature, and a touring headliner. In addition to the usual 3-Act show, The Comedy Shrine also hosts a number of Standup Contests, Showcases, and Special Events.
