The best comedy clubs in Minnesota

I was on KSTP-TV’s Twin Cities Live with a roundup of the best places for standup and improv comedy in Minnesota.

  1. Acme Comedy Company
    • North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis
    • Monday is Open Mic Night — admission is free!
    • Plan a bit of time to find parking on the street; download the Minneapolis parking app so you can pay from your phone and get alerts when your meter is about to expire
  2. HUGE Improv Theater
    • Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis
    • Improv comedy 6 nights a week (closed Tuesdays)
    • Tickets are usually $10, with some shows ‘pay what you like’
  3. Cinema Grill
    • New Hope
    • Check the schedule in advance as they don’t always have a show
    • Big names go through the community of New Hope — Todd Bridges, Ben Bailey (“Cash Cab”)
  4. Stevie Ray’s Comedy Cabaret
    • Inside the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, Chanhassen
    • Shows Friday and Saturday nights
    • Similar format to “Whose Line is it Anyway?”
