After a long day at work, there’s few better ways to unwind then by slapping your knee with a good chuckle, or even falling out of your chair with a great guffaw — or maybe that’s just us.

So today, we ha-ha-have six places where you can get a giggle, let out a laugh, and have some hilarity in Derby City.

Comedy Clubs

Louisville Comedy Club
This downtown Louisville club (110 W. Main St.) is located directly across from Whiskey Row. It regularly hosts national touring acts like Jay Pharoah from “Saturday Night Live” and Adam Carrolla. It also hosts a free, weekly open mic night on Wednesdays, so you can see if your at-the-office material really plays.

The Caravan Comedy Club
Where can you find a grocery store, public library, movie theater, and comedy club all in the same place? Mid City Mall, of course. The current iteration of this club (1250 Bardstown Rd.) began in 2017, but the space has hosted a comedy venue since 1987. It regularly features both national + local comics, and often hosts community musical performances as well.

All you need is a stage and a mic

Gravely Brewing Co.
Known for its musical theme, this Highlands brewery (514 Baxter Ave.) also hosts regular comedy nights featuring local standup acts from Louisville Laughs.

Ten20 Craft Brewery
Like Gravely, this brewery (1020 E. Washington St.) regularly hosts local comedians in its event space, so you can get a belly laugh in Butchertown.

Kaiju
The backroom of this Germantown bar (1004 E. Oak St.) is the regular venue for a night of free, “Good Standup Comedy” from the Dog + Mouse House group.

Planet of the Tapes
This venue at 640 Barret Ave. offers movie-inspired craft cocktails, a cinema lounge, and DVD rentals in addition to live performances including stand-up comedy, improv, music, a variety show, and more.
