Did you realize that Sacramento is a comedy Mecca?
Oh, trust me, you fortunate ones, it is.
Within a microphone’s throw of downtown Sacramento, you can find three major comedy clubs, two improv shows, a few smaller weekday venues and, for the aspiring comic or those of you wondering if you have the chops, some open mics and showcases to satisfy your comedy appetite.
Because we report on the Sacramento comedy scene each and every day, we are constantly immersed and amazed at how much quality comedy is made available to you.
In the last 60 days alone, Jerry Seinfeld, DL Hughley, Tim Meadows, Josh Blue, Gallagher and Ralphie May Jo Koy, Darren Carter and so many more headlined Sacramento. Local comedian Keith Lowell Jensen had his first CD released at the Punchline while local up-and-coming superstar Mike E. Winfield headlined the local clubs and the coolest improv house, The Sacramento Comedy Spot, continued to create laughs and giggles with their weekly improv, sketch, stand up and open mic nights.
Why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to get up and go. Get out of the house. Smile. Laugh and have a great time. And I am going to show you how.
Each week, I will answer questions from you, the great readers of the Sacramento Press, the comedy lovers, the beautiful people, and help you navigate through our very wonderfully lush comedy landscape. I will help you pick the right show and venue, fit it into your budget, and address issues like hecklers, rude waitstaff, sitting in the front row, finding a group to attend with and the different levels of "edge-iness" you might be comfortable with.
Trust me. I know comedy.
