Each night, an old-school Budd Friedman comic showcase goes up.
You’ll see national acts like Wendy Liebman and Dan Levy, as well as young up-and-coming comics who are building their careers.
Once upon a time, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, and any number of famous comics whose names don’t begin with “J” performed on this stage.
