“Great comedy act”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Highly recommend any private group looking for some entertainment to hire these guys. Very funny and inclusive of the audience. A nice change than typical nightlife entertainment.

“Try something new!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

I've been living in Playa for two years now and I've been to the standard bumping club, live band or sports bar who knows how many times. So when I found out that there was a new comedy club that opened up I was eager to try it out. Comedy Playa is a breath of fresh air in Playa Del Carmens generic night life. The comics come from all walks of life and you can hear jokes that cover everything from pooping with a hangover to the joys and horrors of raising children. There is a welcoming atmosphere as the comics greet the guest as they arrive and often stay for a few drinks after the show. They also support open mic night inviting new comics to come up and try out comedy for the first time. In all Comedy Playa is a must for people looking for something new and people who are just fans of great stand up.

“Comedy Playa is the dope bomb shiznit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Like a laser guided missile of laughiness. Like a nuclear piss-yourself blast. Every single one of these comics will make your nether regions feel funny and your bowels quake with the pain of a thousand suns worth of awesome hilariosity. Seriously, you'll die. And love it. Go to this.

“stomach-hurting funny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

I am a huge fan of stand-up and was so suprised to find out there was a weekly show a few blocks away from my winter vacation apartment here in playa. i have been at least 6 times now and the 5 resident comics continue to pump out new bits week after week. Also twice i have been to special events they put on where they book comedians from the states or canada and the venue both times was sold out. Apart from this team being frickin hilarious, they seem determined to make sure the scene continues to grow here. GO SEE COMEDY PLAYA!!!

“Really fun night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

I've been to Comedy Playa gigs a few times now over the last year and always have a great night. The acts are top notch quality, I never get enough.

Their shows vary between regular stand up gigs, open mic, professional comedian guests, roastings, and halloween shows - from what I've seen so far.

I can say from experience that Comedy Playa is a jem (especially when compared to other local "expat"-type comedy nights I've attended in Barcelona and Vancouver, and not far off from the quality you'd get from professional stand up from Second City in Toronto).

The venue is great, the staff are super friendly, you get served promptly at the bar.
The atmosphere during the gig is intimate, audience participation varies from night to night. There's no doubt you'll find the comedians funny, eloquent, punny and thoughtful. You'll also pick up a lot of witty insights to life in Playa - making it the only place you'll find common ground on what it's like to live here as an foreigner.
A welcome relief when you're trying to let off some steam.

Highly recommended as a fun and unique night out.
