In the mood for a funny fix but don't know where to go? Well, you're in luck. From improv to stand-up to sketch, open-mic and comedy theatre, Dallas serves up a litany of laughs practically every night of the week. The only thing is, you have to know where to look.
It's pretty much a given that you'll find all the heavy-hitters at places like the Improv, located both in Addison and Arlington. And the lineups are all killer at Hyena's Comedy Club, where touring comedians like Pauly Shore and Dustin Ybarra routinely perform. Want to see (or be) the next Chris Rock? Then head over to Back Door Comedy Club on Thursday when the stage is up for grabs. The club is also a stomping ground for big name comedians like David Spade and Bill Engvall.
Of course, there's more ways to get your laughs on then just stand-up. For comedy theater, check out the independently produced showcases at Theatre Three. There's also the Pocket Sandwich Theatre, one of the city's longest-running comedy showcases offering everything from popcorn slinging melodramas to comedy musicals.
Like you laughs with a side of seduction? Then the enticing and hilariously entertaining trysts at Viva Dallas Burlesque are truly a must-see.
And if you really want a steady stream of laughter–we're talking improv, sketch, stand-up, open-mic– you name it, Dallas Comedy House delivers it up on a silver platter five nights a week.
