Limelight Comedy Club

[01/12/20]   Hey Limelight. This is Nate the producer talking, not that anyone else does these Facebook posts. Due to a sudden tragedy in my family, I'm going to have to cancel shows for the foreseeable future, at least for the rest of the month. I know this is out of the blue and kind of makes the schedule a mess. I apologize to anyone I booked who I will also message privately to reschedule at some point, but if you are going through the sh*t I'm going through right now, I think running a comedy show all by myself in the dead of winter that relies almost entirely on yelling at people on the street to get a crowd in wouldn't be your highest priority either. We're not gone for good. Don't worry. Keep an eye out on this page and I'll post when our next show or mic will be.

Open mic tonight! Bring your new stuff!

[12/25/19]   Merry Christmas all! No show tonight or next week for the holidays. We'll be back on January 8th for our monthly open mic. If you come by today, it'll be as empty as a cancelled show can get

It's our last show of 2019! Come on out and see some great free comedy! 7:30!

[12/11/19]   No show this week. They're painting the stage. We'll be back on the 19th

Tonight! Come out and try out that fun art that we call stand up comedy!

[11/26/19]   No Limelight this week. Go spend time with your family, you crazy animals. We'll be back on December 4th with our monthly open mic.

[11/20/19]   Another show tonight! Come by!

Limelight's tonight in just a few hours. If you don't go, I will be telling your mother.

In addition to our usual great shows, we're excited to announce that we'll be adding a monthly open mic component, starting this week! Come out and try your hand at stand up comedy! Still free, still Wednesdays, still 7:30

[10/29/19]   No show this week. We'll be back on November 6th with another great comedy lineup!
