Comedy Works South

5345 Landmark Place Greenwood Village, CO 80111 | Southeast Denver Suburbs | 720-274-6800

Location Description:

After running the Comedy Works downtown -- which some consider one of the finest comedy clubs in the nation -- for nearly two decades, Wende Curtis opened the Landmark location in October 2008. While the downtown club brings in the younger, hipper and edgier comics, Comedy Works South generally brings in the slightly cleaner, nationally known acts. This 21,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, which also includes a restaurant and a martini bar, is an upgrade on the downtown location, and the comedy theater holds nearly twice as many people. The venue is also available for private functions, including business meetings, reunions and wedding parties.
