COVID-19 UPDATE (Sept. 2020)
As of late last month, there are some outdoor, socially distanced comedy shows popping up around town. While details about what’s safe vs. what is not safe seems to change every 90 seconds, here’s what you can expect as an audience member at the shows on this website as we weather this pandemic:
– It is occurring outdoors, so be prepared for weather of all sorts.
– Seating is socially distanced and groups cannot exceed 4 people.
– You are expected to wear a mask and keep it on (over your mouth and nose) throughout the entirety of the show unless you’re taking a sip of your drink or a bite of your food. Is that overkill? No safe way of knowing, but the staff has to keep a mask on their face to serve you, so the absolute least you can do is return the favor (and tip 30% minimum – not joking, they’re putting their health and safety on the line, please act accordingly). If any of this is too much for you – we appreciate you considering live comedy, but respectfully request you wait until we return to some semblance of normalcy before attending shows.
– Some shows have the opportunity to buy tickets or reserve seats. We highly recommend doing so to prevent getting turned away as capacity is significantly lower than before the coronapocalypse happened.
Despite these precautions, you assume all risks by attending any shows listed on this site. This country is still a hotbed for a deadly virus that every other country managed to keep under control, so… try to be safe, have some fun, and don’t be a dick!
This site is not currently listing or promoting open mics. However, there are certainly ways to find out whether such events are occurring.
We love comedy. We love Cincinnati.
This city has low key one of the best comedy scenes in the country. There are a lot of great opportunities to go out and enjoy original comedy – no streaming necessary. We’re coming to you live almost every night of the week right here in the Queen City. Come to a show to see the best comics in the city run their tried and true material in an intimate setting – you might even see a big name drop in to do a set as they pass through town.
Shows may get cancelled last minute and are not reflected on this site. Verify with the show runner or on the Facebook group before driving out.
This Calendar should be up-to-date, but go ahead and read the previous statement one more time. If you run a show in town that you would like included on this website, reach out in the Facebook group.
