STAND-UP MEMBERSHIP

The Comedy Clubhouse

The Comedy Clubhouse is a 50 seat comedy club located at the nexus of the Chicago neighborhoods of Wicker Park, Bucktown, Lincoln Yards, and Noble Square at 1462 N. Ashland, Chicago, IL 60622. We have all types of comedic performances that our stand-up comics can participate in, with more coming. We use an internal site to allow the comic to sign up for their future performances. (Comics must wait for the completion of their performance for a specific show, like Toasted, before signing up for another future Toasted show)

 

Main Stage Mic

Our Main Stage Mic features our top house comics alongside a top Chicago or National Headliner. Our venue was a finalist in the Chicago Reader for Best Venue for Stand-up.

Toasted

A show where our stand-up comics do a set and then Roast and Toast an Audience Members. This show was named Top 9 Places for Laughs by the Chicago Reader. Our comics practice the real world skill set of coming up with jokes on a deadline in a very forgiving context.

Nightcap

Cutting-edge stand-up comedy from Chicago and around the country, this show features our house comics alongside a top Chicago headliner.

Main Stage Showcases

From time to time we put up showcases to highlight diverse talent or diverse skills within our organization.

Sponsored Show Program

Put up your own show! As a member, any show you petition will get 4 instances without charge. We supply the space, the staff, the ticketing, and all the administrative support. You market the show, perform, and receive 50% of total ticket sales! If the show is successful we negotiate a long term extension.

We are currently only looking for Resident comics. In the future, we may open up the House Comic designation.
