Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: The Area's Top Comedy Clubs

October 25, 2016



I'm not a huge fan of hitting the gym. Honestly, I prefer to get my ab workout via copious amounts of laughter. The BEST place for lots of laughs? The comedy club! Here in the greater Seattle area, we have MANY fabulous places to catch hilarious comedians at every level with a wide variety of styles. If you're looking for chuckles in the coming weeks, here are some of the places you might hit:


1. Parlor Live - Bellevue, WA: Located in downtown Bellevue, Parlor Live has had some incredible comedians pass through the doors, including one of my favorites, Heather McDonald! This weekend, catch Clayton English from Last Comic Standing and Tyler Perry's House of Payne!


2. The Upfront Theatre - Bellingham, WA: Ever heard of a guy named Ryan Stiles from Whose Line Is It Anyway, the Drew Carey Show and Two And A Half Men? This is his place! The Upfront Theatre hosts some of the BEST improv comedy in the area. Be sure to check out An Evening With Kevin McDonald from Kids In The Hall. That's going down November 12th!

Could be a "tall guy" sighting at the GBU tonight! #TheUpfront #Improv #Bellingham #RyanStiles

3. Tacoma Comedy Club - Tacoma, WA: If you're looking for a fantastic comedy experience down south, definitely check out The Dope Show at Tacoma Comedy Club on November 13th. Seattle's favorite stoner Tyler Smith and company do a mostly sober set, then participate in certain 420-friendly activities, then come back for a second set. It's AWESOME. 


Where do you like to go for comedy? Email me your favorite places so I can check 'em out next time I need an ab workout!


Happy Adventuring,
