Joker's Wild Comedy Club's stage showcases comics drawn from both the national touring circuit and the local scene. On June 22 and 23, Tom Daddario channels two decades of experience as a singer and actor into impressions of his girlfriend and his video-game-addled nephew. Melvin George II (July 6–7) has displayed his bass-laden voice on channels such as HBO and Showtime. On stage, he deploys it to examine the fragile anatomy of his own coolness, which largely hinges on his choice of hat. Opening for George, Peaches Rodriguez takes the stage with goofy but highly deliberate physical comedy, using skills developed early in her career as a world-class breakdancer in the 1980s.

The intimate venue, which recently replaced its space-hogging booths with brand-new seats, features headlining comedians who fill Thursday–Saturday evenings with laughter during 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. shows. On Wednesday night, fledgling funny folk strive for their five minutes of fame at open mic night. Joker’s Wild also runs its own School of Comedy, where budding comedians can chase their dreams of cracking up audiences and keeping glasses of water on a stool. The club’s full menu of pub food mutes growling stomachs with appetizers and entrees for patrons hoping to perfect an onion-ring spit take.
