The original outpost of the Comedy Works franchise (now with a second location south of town) is underground, but the acts the club presents aren't. The cavernous and oft-cramped room hosts many of the comics who have regularly cozied up to Jay, Dave and Conan (Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr, Ellen Degeneres, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle among them), as well as local standup guys and gals. The club has been going since 1981 and even earned accolades in USA Today as one of the top five comedy venues in the country. The setting isn't for the claustrophobic -- tables are shoved together to maximize the laughter-decibel level -- and the drinks aren't cheap. But the laughs aren't, either.
