Page 2 of 2

3. Ray Combs Florida Comedy Club
201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-806-9799; floridacomedyclub.com.

If under-the-radar comedy acts is your thing, this is the comedy club for you. Sans all the glitz and glamour the Fort Lauderdale Improv provides, the Florida Comedy Club is more about cheap tickets and big laughs. There is most definitely a local feel here that makes you feel like you're witnessing something on the rise.

Many of the same house acts that perform often are featured on the Florida Comedy Club website. Tickets for an upcoming tour titled All You Can Laugh are now on sale. 

2. Sick Puppies Comedy
7200 W. Camino Real #330, Boca Raton; 954-667-7735; sickpuppiescomedy.com.

Besides offering improv classes and workshops, Sick Puppies puts on a damn fine improv show themselves. Tickets range from $17-$20 for their shows that feature a huge variety of people from all different walks of life. Just the number of people involved in some of these shows is impressive. This is one of the most ideal locations to take a date as it's clean, cheap, and easy to access without stepping over drunks or asking Siri 45 times where the club is. 

Sick Puppies' list of October shows can be found on their website in addition to information about how you can learn to do what they do, thus kickstarting your comedic career so you can gain a spot on the new Mad TV, whenever that finally airs. 

1. Palm Beach Improv 
550 S. Rosemary Ave. West Palm Beach; 561-833-1812; palmbeachimprov.com.

Like its southern sister club, Palm Beach Improv is the top of the mountain when it comes to improv clubs in its area. Here you will find the famous comedians that have either been in a movie or had a special on Comedy Central. This upcoming month, the club welcomes Aries Spears, Jeff Dye, Ari Shaffir, Bob Marley (obviously not that one), and Bruce Bruce. 

Palm Beach Improv offers drink specials on all types and brands of alcohol, making it a top option if you're looking for a fun couples' night out on the cheap.
