There are only two places that I trust for comedy in Detroit. Well atleast for improv
- Go Comedy! Improv Theater : Located in Ferndale neighborhood. You can find Go Comedy with something going on every day of the week EXCEPT Monday. I would suggest the Friday or Saturday night but even on a week day it is really fun. The Friday and Saturday crowds are usually really fun. The vibes inside are fun with a full bar, shows 6 days a week, you can even take an improv. class. In my opinion this is the best establishment in the metro area to check out live comedy any night of the week. Its also a little classy.
- Planet Ant : Located in Hamtramck neighborhood. On Monday nights at 8PMfor $5 you can chect out a guest troupe, the home team, and a close out with a open mic improv. This space is the epitome of a DIY space, Planet Ant has held its place in the top of Detroit’s comedy scene for what seems like forever. Expect to laugh, the seats are folding chairs, but believe me it only adds to the experience.
