We went to see Mitch Fatel at the Laughing Derby (formerly Comedy Caravan). He was hilarious, laughed the entire time!! The environment was great, server was quick and on top of it. This honestly was the best date night we have had in years

The good: You can see touring comedians at a great price, usually $15 or less and a 2 drink minimum. We have a blast every time we go... Until this Saturday night. The not so good: We went to a show that had a promo for 2 free tickets. We used their website got the confirmation email all was good.... More

Never underestimate how great it feels to laugh! This place was as good, if not better than any comedy place anywhere in the country. Saw amazing comedians (Holly Lynnea, Steve Hofstetter, and the amazing Keith McGill). I will go back again and again....hurray for Louisville's excellent talent!

We (5 couples) went to Laughing Derby August 1st. I bought the tickets on Groupon for a very good price. Highly recommend for a fun night out. I have gone to comedy clubs in NYC and this would rank up there with them. I will definitely return in the future.

My wife and I went to the comedy club the other night while they were tapping an episode of laughs. The comedians were great but between the acts they wanted to tape for the show. For 2hrs we had to participate in the tapping. So a normal 2 hrs show lasted 4hrs. The high chair seats my wife and I... More

We went to Laughing Derby last night, first time with new owners. They were taping the tv show Laughs and host was great! Very quick and witty. Headliner was Jeff Dye. Awesome guy. Highly recommend for a fun night out. Suggestion: They need to reorganize reception area. You walk in and go down stairs. There is a podium, however, the... More

My husband and I went on a Thursday night for a special TV taping of the new Fox show "Laughs." It was not what we expected but we had a great time. There are a few issues with the club that other people have already stated. Getting in is a little bit of a mad house. Seating is first come... More

It was a little crazy trying to get tickets and the wait before the show was very long as a huge crowd packed in. The waiting area before being allowed into the main venue could definitely be A. bigger and B. better air conditioned. I along with everyone else within my view were sweating profusely. Once we got in we... More

My husband and I saw Tim Meadows tonight. Overall, the show was enjoyable. The comedian that opened prior to Tim was less than funny. The host of the show was very funny. One significant negative.....it was so hot in the showroom. Tim was very engaging with the audience. Seating was tight but we could see well. We will return.

Me & 3 others drove 50 minutes from home & attended the Mark Curry show, Saturday June 21, at 10:00 pm. It was my first show at this place. I must say, it was a nightmare from the start. We get there & the line is backed up from the entrance door that goes into the showroom, snaked thru the... More
