Comedy Works has been Denver's premier destination for the very best in stand-up comedy since 1981. As one of the nation's true comedy landmarks, we routinely attract the country's top comedians. We also enjoy a strong reputation for developing new acts and fostering a talented base of local comedians. Many of our homegrown acts have become major forces in the national comedy scene, appearing on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show, Craig Ferguson, and Last Comic Standing, which our very own Josh Blue won.

We love coming to Comedy Works Denver becuase their calendar is always full of really spectacular national acts. Seeing these comics in a small and intimate room is such a treat.

We visited Comedy Works to see Michael Yo. HILARIOUS!! Truly great entertainment. The establishment itself was pretty cramped. You have the 2 item minimum per seat, which is fine, but if you order food there is literally no place to put it. You just have...More

I like the way they use a theater type of row seating. I think you can see better than sitting at the typical tables you see in comedy clubs. There are cup holders on every other chair and I think it would be difficult to...More

I liked the venue. It was a bit cozy though. Yes, they have a two item minimum per person which I think is unnecessary. I had a cucumber martini. It was pretty good. The opening act was much funnier than the main act (Joe Zimmerman)....More

I am still not sure how they knew who ordered two drinks and who did not but it's a policy that they do enforce so don't think you can save cash by byo. We saw Tom Segura and it was nice to be able to...More

The club is so perfectly put together that it attracts top of the line acts. It's one of the best places to see comedy in the world and I'm happy I got to see a show here.
