Dinner Show or Orlando Comedy Club?

Comedy is important in our lives. We all need a good laugh now and then. (Read our earlier post about the importance of laughter.) There are many options when it comes to Orlando comedy clubs. Combined with a good meal, an evening out on the town, and you’ll probably have one of the more memorable evenings of your life. Capone’s Dinner & Show offers a lot of comedy in their show. Side-splitting laughter is quite common. However, if an Orlando comedy club is more what you had in mind, rather than a dinner theater, here are some suggestions.

Sak Comedy Lab - Orlando

Orlando Comedy Club Recommendations:

The Improv located on International Drive is very popular with tourists, because of its location having I-Ride Trolley stops (24 north/green 12 south). This Orlando comedy club features a lot of big-name entertainers. It has been a career launching pad for dozens of local comedians. The shows run primarily on the weekends with a few events mixed in on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Many, if not all of their shows are for people over 21 years of age. The menu at the Improv features appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, desserts and beverages (including a full bar). Keep in mind that 18% gratuity is added to every check. Groups can book events at The Orlando Improv.

Bonkerz Comedy Clubs are located throughout the United States. Central Florida is lucky enough to have several locations! Located in East Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Daytona, Oviedo and Deltona, the opportunity to have a hilarious dinner & show won’t be far away. Most tourists seek out the East Orlando comedy club on Colonial Drive. This location is known as the Boardwalk Bowl Entertainment Center. Shows are featured every Friday and Saturday night with a cover charge at $10 (usually). Here again, only adults 21 & over are allowed. Their menu consists of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and salads with prices from $6 to $17. A full liquor bar is available. Other events, such as corporate events, bachelor parties, retirements, and girls night out can be held at any of the Bonkerz locations.

Comedy for Families

SAK Comedy Lab is another great place to experience comedy. Of all the comedy clubs in Orlando, this one is least like a dinner show. Their venue is set up theater style with a concession stand for refreshments. The venue is a 200-seat theater located upstairs in downtown Orlando. Shows are held on Tuesday through Saturday nights and are suitable for all ages. Ticket prices run from $5 for some shows to $15 general admission for their popular weekend shows. Furthermore, if you really love improv comedy, you can take classes at SAK. Additionally, you may hire a comedian for your team-building event, or even have a local comedian emcee/host your event.

Create Your Own Dinner & Comedy Experience

Worth Noting: If you are looking more for an Orlando dinner show, yet want to experience the Improv, see the show, then walk to any number of restaurants nearby to dine. Next door is Fat Fish Blue, featuring a menu of Louisiana-Smokehouse cuisine and traditional American favorites. Even more, there are many other restaurants within walking distance worth noting. They are Adobe Gila’s, Itta Bena, Taverna Opa Orlando, Copper Canyon Grill, Marlow’s Tavern and Maggiano’s Little Italy.

While not considered dinner shows, the preceding Orlando comedy clubs combine comedy with dinner options and plenty of laughter. Other places where comedians often perform are at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Orlando. Most locals and tourists still prefer an Orlando dinner show over a comedy club visit. Usually, the food is better, and the entire family can attend.

You can also find laughs in abundance at most Orlando dinner shows. Read this best list of all Orlando Dinner Shows and pick one. That is, of course, if you are not looking to spend an evening at a comedy club. If a late night or adult-only show is what you’d like to experience, any of these comedy clubs will be great for you.

    It was brought to my attention that Mama’s Comedy Show was not included in this article. My apologies. Every Friday night at Sleuth’s Dinner Theatre, you can catch a comedy show at 10:00 p.m. for only $10. Evidently it is quite funny, so check it out! Call 407-363-1985 for information and reservations. http://www.mamascomedyshow.com
