Madison has a strong local comedy scene. Whether it's an open mic or a locally produced comedy show, there are great comedy events happening all the time. Over the years, local Madison comedy has been the starting place for many talented comics. Today, the scene features a diverse range of original voices.

Madison is also home to The Comedy Club on State, which headlines all of the best comedians in the country. You can see local Madison comedians perform there every Wednesday at the Big Deuce Open Mic, as well as host on the weekend.

Madison welcomes aspiring comics. If you've always wanted to try comedy, come to one of our many open mics. You'll find a friendly, supportive atmosphere in which to try out your stuff. Don't be afraid of bombing - we've all done it!
