Improv Comedy Club In West Palm Beach

Posted by Gerald Lombardo on Thursday, December 6th, 2018 at 12:12pm.

Whether you’re on a date or with friends, going out in West Palm Beach to watch some stand-up comedy is a great way to spend your night. The Improv is the premier comedy club in West Palm Beach that features the biggest and brightest names in comedy 52 weeks a year.

Did you know that standup comedy was born in the United States? Historians trace the origins of stand-up comedy to a very specific time and place: the variety, or burlesque shows, that flourished in New York City’s turn-of-the-century vaudeville theaters. Although widely known for its racy stripteases and dancing-girl performances, burlesque also featured energetic, fast-paced comedy routines. The comedians designed their material to appease a new sort of audience: a ragtag crew of native-born Americans and immigrant workers. These audiences were intimately familiar with the physical and chaotic nature of modern city life, and they weren’t interested in the homey campfire tales of the past like those of Mark Twain and other early humorists.

The Palm Beach Improv has some great acts playing this month, December, here are just a few:

  • Anjelah Johnson

  • Jess Hilarious

  • Craig Robinson

  • Ian Bagg

  • And a special performance by Nick Swardson
