With locations dotted along the country, Funny Bone Comedy Clubs host local and nationally touring comedians plucked from sources such as Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing. Over the past three decades, these hallowed stages have served as a launching pad for up-and-comers and have been graced by the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Kathleen Madigan, Jim Breuer, and the clown from It, who is no longer welcome at birthday parties. Funny Bone Comedy Clubs stay involved in their respective communities by also hosting numerous charitable functions, magic shows, and children’s comedy.
