There are many comedy shows and clubs in Boston. If you are looking for a classy (but pricy) place to have a cocktail while watching some of the stars of Boston’s comedy scene, Nicks comedy stop is probably your best bet. If you are just looking for a free show we recommend Improv Boston and their free open mic nights!
