The Laughing Derby is more than just a comedy club, it is the best night out in Louisville. Whether you are watching a performance by some of the world's top comedians, enjoying one of signature drinks, or attending a party in our unique event space, you'll be having fun.
The foundation of The Laughing Derby lies in presenting a superior comedy show from start to finish each night using only the best talent from around the world. The Laughing Derby believes that comedy is art, and art is clever - we uniformly reject tired comics looking for an outlet to test the limits of vulgarity. Our search for originality and professionalism is unrelenting, and we pride ourselves on both identifying the best of the day and cultivating future stars.
But great talent alone isn't the key to a great show. We take great pains to mix and match the different material, styles, and pacing of our professional comedians in order to ensure the best combinations possible. The result is consistency: The Laughing Derby constructs a great show every night.
Upping the Ante
The same folks who operate Morty's Comedy Joint in Indianapolis and the Laughing Devil in New York City, the owners of The Laughing Derby have a tremendous amount of experience operating successful and hip comedy clubs.
The ownership team is a healthy mix of comedians and businessmen - fusing the best features of dozens of clubs from across the country and business practices from around the world, and topped off with a level of sophistication previously unheard of in the industry.
Technically speaking, The Laughing Derby is no slouch either. The memorabilia on the club's walls creates the feeling of a shrine to comedy, while offering unobstructed views from every seat in the house. The Laughing Derby employs a state-of-the-art audio-visual system, ensuring appropriate acoustics and lighting, so good that we record and produce comedy albums live inside the club.
Spend an evening at The Laughing Derby to see, taste, and experience the difference.
