Laughing Skull Lounge

878 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, GA 30309


"A perfect venue for comedy and one of the greatest assets for Atlanta's burgeoning comedy scene. If you listen to any comedy podcasts like The Nerdist, Doug Loves Movies, or Comedy Death Ray the name "Laughing Skull Lounge" usually won't be mentioned without the words "F**king awesome" at some point. That's coming from some of the top comedians out today which is a pretty strong endorsement in my opinion."

When it comes to Atlanta Comedy Clubs... SIZE MATTERS! We are the smallest full-time comedy venue in the WORLD and located right here in Atlanta! Yes, that is correct... if you can find a full-time comedy club with less than 74 seats, we will give you a prize! What is that prize? We do not know because we dont think you can find one!

How does this size benefit you? Because stand-up comedy is a personal art form best enjoyed in an intimate setting, and you can not get any more intimate than Atlanta's Laughing Skull Lounge! Our lounge is only 22' wide and 32' long with three rows of stadium seating in the back which means there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

Plus we are Atlanta's only full-time progressive comedy lounge, located in Midtown Atlanta in the heart of Atlanta's Midtown Mile, hidden in the back of The Vortex Bar & Grill on Peachtree Street. This intimate setting, along with these amazing comedians, gives you a comedy experience that you can not find any where else... period! And you can come early or stay late to eat at one of Atlanta's best restaurants... The Vortex has won best burger in Atlanta since 1992 and was recently on The Travel Channel's "Man vs Food" for their triple by-pass burger.

Please be aware that The Laughing Skull Lounge is not like most comedy clubs as we do not sell food during the show, all shows are no-smoking, and our main focus is on showcasing stand-up comedy as an art form to the people of Atlanta. The best way to explain the difference between us and all other comedy clubs is that most comedy clubs focus on playing Top 40, while we focus on playing Jazz.
