Sometimes all you need is a good laugh. On occasion, reruns of your favorite sitcoms can do the trick, but there’s something a little more exciting about experiencing comedy in person. The performances, the crowd, the comedic energy in the room; everything seems a little more amped up at a comedy show. Lucky for you, metro Detroit has plenty of unique comedy venues that will have you laughing until it hurts. So set the DVR to record your favorite sitcom and head out to one of these four great comedy venues instead.

Go Comedy!

Go Comedy! is one of the area’s premier improv comedy theaters, and it’s not hard to see why. The venue is home to some of the area’s most talented improv comedians, and sketch comedy writers as well. Go Comedy! hosts recurring comedy shows every week. Their latest recurring show, “It Was the Worst of Times, It Was the Worst of Times,” will be ending its run next Tuesday, January 30.  With unique shows almost every night, Go Comedy! gives audiences plenty of reasons to laugh.

Punchline Comedy

If you’re in the mood for more traditional comedy, the Punchline Comedy club in Southfield hosts the country’s funniest up-and-coming stand-up comedians. With specialty cocktails and margaritas, along with a full food menu, Punchline Comedy makes for a good date night out. The venue also hosts Taco Tuesdays every week, just another great reason to check them out.
