Live comedy is one of life's simple pleasures... like a double rainbow or cat videos on the internet. So it is with great pleasure that we're able to offer the following comedy shows to the Lehigh Valley. And shows are just the beginning! We offer classes too! Plus, we've also got all the ammenities you'd expect - delicious eats, a full bar and comfy seats. Please note that these shows can contain strong language and adult material. Parental discretion is strongly advised.
