Improv Asylum

What started as a basement theater company in 1997 is still in a basement. But don't let that fool you. For over 20 years, Improv Asylum has been voted Boston's Best Comedy. Featuring several performances each week, including its Main Stage Cast, NXT Cast and all-improv Raunch show, Improv Asylum has something for every comedy lover. And if you're traveling with kids, they even have a matinee with bottomless hot cocoa!

The Wilbur Theatre

Think Trevor Noah, Dave Attell, Tracy Morgan, Phoebe Robinson, and Iliza Shlesinger - and that's just a glimpse of this year's lineup! Not traveling during a show? The Wilbur is also a top destination for live music in Boston.

Founded in 1982, ImprovBoston is a nonprofit comic institution that specializes in improv comedy. The comedy group offers regular shows at the Rockwell Theater and pop-up shows throughout the city. Be on the lookout for the opening of Studio 620, ImprovBoston's new performance space.

The Rockwell

Given its location in Somerville, a city with more artists per capita than any other in the United States, it's no surprise that the Rockwell is a hotbed of comedy. Formerly The Davis Square Theatre and Jimmy Tingle’s Off Broadway, this basement-level theater features a full bar and has a lineup ranging from children’s comedy to burlesque.
