Best of Boston

2011 Best Comedy Club

Comedy Studio

A dim attic in a Chinese restaurant may not shout “big laughs inside,” but the Comedy Studio consistently delivers them. The room’s long communal tables—and an audience lubricated with potent scorpion bowls—provide a perfect setting for seasoned pros to test new material, and for up-and-comers to hone their timing.
