Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle

With a stage sturdy enough to bear the weight of standup comedy giants such as Jon Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle continues to cultivate talent to fill up its schedule. In the same way that it has operated since 1979, the venue employs a three-tier format for its shows: an emcee, a local up-and-coming act and a nationally recognized comic. This approach exposes audiences to new voices while entertaining them with the promise of a recognized talent at evening’s end.

  • “Great laughs at reasonable price.”

  • “Most of the time the main headliner is the funniest comedian and sometimes all 3 are great! Its a great time out to see live comedy!”
