Hecklers beware: Rockhead Pub's Comedy Quarry doesn't like you. The venue embraces comedians and the audiences who love them, but will use a giant stage hook to remove anyone who attempts to ruin the night with their own untested musings. Because of this, crowds can bask in the sharp witticisms of regional, national, and international stand-ups without interruption. The club gives back in other ways, too—it hosts fundraising shows for local charities and Twitter caption contests for its followers.

That talent may well include some big or soon-to-be-big names: Roney worked with stars including Mo'Nique and Mike Epps on his documentary Da Comic Vibe.

As part of famed San Francisco promoter Bill Graham’s chain of venues, the rock ‘n’ roll pedigree of The Fillmore Detroit comes with the name.
