Best Comedy Room

While the big rooms are reserved for surefire, established—and sometimes stale and bloated—acts (cough, JeffDunham-and-JerrySeinfeld-at-the-Colosseum, cough), and the smaller rooms are reserved for up-and-comers or little-known road dogs, the Playboy Comedy Club at the Palms Lounge consistently hits the sweet spot of proven comics who haven’t graduated to large concert halls and outrageous ticket prices.
