Laughing Skull Lounge
Voted Best Comedy Venue and billing itself as “Atlanta’s only full-time progressive comedy lounge”, The Laughing Skull takes its standup seriously. Their philosophy can best be summed up by a musical analogy: “Most comedy clubs focus on playing Top 40, while we focus on playing jazz,” says the team. It seems this dedicated yet freewheeling approach appeals to the headliners themselves. Greg Proops diagnoses Laughing Skull audiences as “hip, smart and not jaded.” Paul F. Tompkins shot his Comedy Central special here, and cult comedic heavyweights such as Garfunkle & Oates, Margaret Cho, and Marc Maron have all sent punchlines hurtling toward the 74 seats that fill this intimate venue. Though there’s no food served during the shows, the 22’x32’ lounge sits at the back of The Vortex Bar & Grill, whose burgers have won multiple “Best of Atlanta Awards” since 1992 and been featured on TV’s Man v. Food.
“Show up early and eat a burger, drink a beer. The drink menu inside the comedy lounge is smaller, but still good beer and tons if laughs. ”
“Small venue, great vibe! ”
