Even if they were not apprised beforehand, guests at Illusions Bar and Theater would quickly realize that they were in no ordinary watering hole. The venue is the brainchild of world renowned escape artist and comedy magician Spencer Horsman and his late father, Ken Horsman, a former Ringling Bros. Circus clown and showbiz veteran. Typical evenings see patrons sipping on specialty cocktails, wine, and beer at an Art Deco style bar before moving on to an intimate theater for a 90-minute performance by the various magicians who regularly stop by to show off their illusions.
Baltimore Comedy Factory has nonviolently busted guts with nationally sourced joke-slingers for nearly three decades. Several nights a week, the club schedules sets by stars pulled onto the stage fresh from appearances in blockbuster comedies and hit TV shows. After years in the Power Plant Live! complex, the Factory has moved its mirth into the former digs of Toby's Dinner Theater at the Best Western Plus Hotel, where longtime patrons now enjoy quality comedy without having to endure dinner theater.
Though modern in its amenities, Oriole Park at Camden Yards thoroughly embraces baseball's past.

Named Best Comedy Club by the Baltimore City Paper and blueprinted as a comedy club from day one, Magooby's newly built stadium of standup attracts a high-profile flock of TV-tested jokesters to its 240-foot stage and state-of-the-art sound system. The fully stocked bar lines up a joke-themed stable of specialty drinks, such as the Blind Pirate, with bourbon and coconut rum, or the Bearded Ballerina, with bourbon and Bacardi limon. The menu fuels laughing fits and juggling one-upmanship with burgers, chicken tenders, and a caesar salad.
