You'll Never Laugh Harder Than At These 10 Miami Comedy Spots

Miami is a city flourishing with places to eat, drink, and party. It seems like every street corner has a brand new restaurant or a hot new bar to check out. Yet for some reason, it seems like our comedy scene has always been lacking. There used to be the Miami Improv in Coconut Grove once upon a time, but after it shut down, there wasn't much else to keep us laughing (except maybe the absurdity of finding parking on South Beach). 

Still, if you know where to look, you know that comedians and those who love them are actually doing something to make Miami a contender. Take a look at Just The Funny, an improv group that's been slowly growing their audience since 1999.

Then there's places like Artistic Vibes, created by a group of twenty-somethings to give their friends a quality performance space in East Kendall. AV has thrived thanks to social media and word of mouth, and their comedy shows are a real riot.

You'll also find hidden comedy haunts inside of various bars, clubs, and even hotels throughout the Magic City. All it takes is knowing where to look, or at the very least, consulting your friends here at 10Best.
