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.

I actually was here doing a documentary featuring Louie Anderson and a couple other comedians. It is definitely a great place for great comedy. Typically they have a variety of acts. Comedy works is in the best part of Denver. Great places to eat or just hang out.

The Comedians that are booked here are in one word amazing. Then food is o.k., then again if you drink enough any food would be. I have tried several of their drinks. I enjoy the raging bull. And then for the most part it goes straight down hill. The seats are tight, and I am not fat. I work out.... More

I have been to the Comedy works a total of four times all of which times I have had a pleasant evening with funny stand up. My major gripe about the Lodo comedy works is you get there at a respectable time only to wait which seems like an hour in line before you can go down stairs and sit... More

I had been coming to shows here for 15 years. The comedians they bring in are amazing. I don't mind paying the 2 item minimum as you can just get a beer and some cheese sticks. All the mixed drinks are terrible. The margaritas taste like they just come from a mix and there's no booze in them. The seating... More

We went to see the Sklar Brothers at Comedy Works downtown Denver in September of 2014 for my birthday! It was a perfect night! I arrived late because I came from work but as we approached the check in stand, an employee told us that front row seats had just opened up and we could sit there if we'd like... More

I was called by the Comedy Works and offered a free pass to visit during a show during the week. Honestly I really wasnt crazy about going since there were no acts I recognized but it was supposedly "Free" so I said ok. The logistics of the whole affairs is trying, you have to get there between 07:00 to 07:30... More

Good comedians, but rather crass for my taste. Definitely not for kids. Didn't appreciate the claustrophobic type seating either. Staff was courteous and accommodating. If you need a good laugh they can deliver.

Great location right off Larimer Square. Park in the Writer's Square garage and get a voucher at the box office for $1 off the $6 evening parking cost. The comedy club is downstairs right across the street from the garage exit and looks and feels like you would expect with brick walls and a cosy atmosphere. They have wonderful headliners... More

I haven't laughed this hard in a long time - very funny comics, a lot of fun. But seating was terrible - they cram everyone in like sardines, although we got there early so had decent seats in the first 10 rows - it would have completely sucked if we were much further back. Wait staff are constantly back and... More
