About Comedy Underground

Open seven nights a week in Pioneer Square since 1981, the Comedy Underground is among the most venerable nightclubs in the country. It’s philosophy of success is to present talented acts who have something incisive to say in addition to always being hilarious. Fans may not recognize all who appear here but we are confident they eventually will because our track record of presenting future stars is, well, out of this world.

Name a major comedian: Ellen DeGeneres, Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld. They most likely appeared at the Comedy Underground early in their career.

Moreover, we are committed to developing local talent with an open mic on Monday, Call Backs on Tuesday and guest sets by worthy up-and-comers on weekends. We even help budding entertainment promoters by giving them the chance to produce here on off nights.

We serve stiff drinks and are proud of our new Tex-Mex menu.
