Laugh Louisville Grand Opening


Laughter can be heard once again coming from the upper level of Louisville’s top entertainment and dining district, Fourth Street Live! The freshly-renovated Laugh Louisville Comedy Club will host its grand opening weekend on April 1st & 2nd featuring the hilarious Ryan Hamilton, as seen on Netflix!

The festivities will kick off Friday, March 31st with a ribbon cutting scheduled for 1:00pm, paired with an open house for a first look at the space. Louisville’s new home for live comedy is a joint venture between Fourth Street Live! and Boston-based comedy producer’s Norm Laviolette and John Tobin.

With over 60 years of experience producing live comedy between them, Tobin and Laviolette have turned their shared passion for laughter into an equally strong passion for delivering quality live entertainment and dining. The duo could not be more excited to add Laugh Louisville to their family of venues, which includes Improv Asylum, Laugh Boston, Nick’s Comedy Stop, Asylum NYC, Detroit House of Comedy, Plano House of Comedy, and many more.

Laugh Louisville will host stand-up comedy, improv, and podcasts from established local, regional, and national headliners, as well as talented up-and-comers with a focus on supporting comedians from Louisville and throughout greater Kentucky. The downtown Louisville theater space has been renovated to include a larger stage, an increase in seating capacity to 330, and upgrades across the board from cosmetic improvements to an all-new sound system. From comedy fans to seasoned performers, this room for laughter should not disappoint!
