As a company, 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 an EXPERIENCE. The Comedy Bar's motto is "Comedy Done Differently" and we stick to this principle in everything we do.

Visited Chicago recently for a friends birthday. We saw some tickets for sale for some local and California comedians and decided to go for it. What a funny night! It was ironic because the headliner wasn't that great (which is why I am leaving 4...More

We happen to go during open mic night. Definitely worth checking out, we had a great time! Waitress wasn’t very good (actually terrible) but I would still go again.

Nothing about the show was big or sexy. It is billed as a burlesque show which included a total of 2 burlesque numbers over the course of 90 minutes. And it was the same burlesque dancer for both numbers. The burlesque dancing was very good...More

We stumbled across The Comedy Bar by chance. We went on Tomato Tuesday. The comedy was decent. Some were hilarious while others seemed too stoned to function. All in all, we had a great time. The waitress was working her tail off. To avoid her...More

We arrived to the club 20 minutes ahead of time because we preordered a GA type of ticket and wanted to get a good seat. The Eventbrite website shows that doors open 30 minutes prior to Showtime and arriving at least 15min beforehand is recommended,...More

Hi, the full Gino's east menu is available in the show room. The only suggestion we make is to order at least half hour before the show begins since our deep dish can take up to an hour to bake in the oven.

Hi, I'm sorry but I think you may have the wrong venue. We do not have bands perform.
