Comedy clubs are always a nice change of pace for a night out in Boston. When dinner and drinks sounds a bit boring, try hitting a comedy club for a few good laughs. Here are some of the best laughs in the Boston area. – Lori Lennon 

Dick Doherty’s Comedy Vault



Dick Doherty’s Comedy Vault features good comedians with cheap ticket prices. It is a great place to have an inexpensive night out. The stage is in a small, intimate room, so everyone is an easy target for the comedians.

Improv Asylum Comedy Club


Located in the North End, the Improv Asylum is a great place to take a date or a group of friends. The acts are always funny, the ticket prices are very reasonable and they even have a midnight show on Saturdays.

The performers have a great time putting on a show, and that always rubs off on the audience. For deal-seekers, the Improv Asylum offers a free Italian buffet starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday nights.

Mottley's Comedy Club in Boston


Mottley’s Comedy Club is located in the basement of Trinity bar in Boston, but don’t let the underground location fool you. The talent featured at Motley’s is fresh, funny and entertaining. The venue is small and the seating is tight, but the acts will make it all worth it. It is suggested that you buy your tickets in advance to get the best seats.
