A comedy club in Richmond is a venue, typically a night club, bar or restaurant, where people watch or listen to performances, including stand-up comedians, improvisational comedians, impersonators, magicians, ventriloquists and other comedy acts. The venue may seat as many as 300 people and present shows five or more nights per week. They feature a classic performance space with modern multimedia production facilities. They are home to improv performance companies whose members and alumni entertain audiences and who appear in hundreds of films, sitcoms and commercials. They are the best entertainment houses to reckon in the city.
