Detroit Comedy Clubs


Detroit has birthed some of the best names in comedy. A very short list of Motor City comedy notables includes David Alan Grier of In Living Color fame and Gilda Radner of classic Saturday Night Live stature, not to mention those masters of B-movie horror schlock Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Detroit is so steeped in comedy that while most towns have one or two comedy clubs, Detroit has at least four. A mainstay in the Detroit comedy club scene, Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle is where comedy hopefuls cut their teeth in front of a live audience. With dinner and live comedy (including an open mic night on Wednesdays), CoCo’s House of Comedy is an ideal spot for a side-splitting night out.
