The Red Bar Comedy Club is an upscale, Vegas-style stand-up comedy theater that houses the fruits of fresh stand-up from some of the most prominent young comedians in the city. Most shows are a general lineup of local performers, although national comics have been known to pop up like so many spring-loaded children's toys. Past performers have included Hannibal Buress of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, and T.J. Miller, as seen in Get Him to the Greek and Conan. Like attending a professional Santa conference, there is no drink minimum at Red Bar; however, the club promises low drink prices to get patrons giggling at their personal pink elephants. Steps away from a veritable cornucopia of dining and nightlife, The Red Bar Comedy Club is a great evening destination for comedy nerds or monastery clowns looking for material to bring back to their isolated mountainside.
- Enveloped in a bustling tourist and Yup nightlife scene, the River North location has proven to be one of the key elements in making the DIY comedy club one of the hottest places to see local stand-up comedians in the city of Chicago. – Kristy Mangel, Chicagoist
- I thoroughly enjoyed myself at this comedy club and can't wait to go back!! – Natalie K., Yelp, 10/6/10
