Funny Bone Comedy Club, which has previously hosted the giggle-goading talents of Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Chris Rock, sparks audience laughter with performances by both famous standup artists and comedic stars on the rise. Guests can harken to the suave observations of Vince Morris, who has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and HBO’s Sex and the City, as he unpacks amusing insights on relationships, race, and microphone twirling techniques (December 29–January 1). Sandman the Hypnotist invites spectators to join his hilariously edgy display of trance induction (January 12–15), and former SNL cast member and recurring guest on The Today Show Finesse Mitchell shares side-splitting tidbits of love-life advice (January 19–22). Like those on most space shuttle missions, seats are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
The club’s menu of appetizers ensures delectable eats for guffawing jaws, such as Southern fried dills with Cajun mayo ($5.99) or fried green tomatoes with collard greens ($5.99). Beer-battered catfish lollipops ($5.99) dive into jalapeno dipping sauce before nourishing tummies and a healthy growth of prehensile cheek whiskers.
Funny Bone Comedy Club
It started when Gerald Kubach became enamored with standup comedy. Looking to invest in the humor business, he and cofounder Mitch Kutash opened the very first Funny Bone Comedy Club in Pittsburg in 1982. Over 25 years later, the little club that could has turned into a national comedy institution, with branches in nearly every metropolitan city. While household names such as Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Roseanne Barr, and Tim Allen have cut their teeth on the clubs' stages, The Funny Bone continues to offer the first big breaks to up-and-coming local talent.
