The producers at Comedy Bar populate their main stage and cabaret space with local and nationally touring acts that have helped them earn accolades such as Best Comedy Club from the readers of Now. The main stage holds weekly improv bouts and comedic rap battles, whereas the intimate cabaret space doubles as a classroom for standup and sketch-writing workshops. The venue's servers, meanwhile, fuel laughs with a well-stocked menu of pub grub, and draft beers from local breweries including Mill Street and Sleeman join in the revelry by giggling when poured.
