There’s been a resurgence in the interest of stand-up comedy in recent years and it’s definitely present in the thriving comedy scene happening right here in San Diego. There are currently four fully functioning comedy clubs in town, with the newest club being the recently opened American Comedy Co. in downtown San Diego.

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter (Corner of 6th & F St.) The American Comedy Co. is a custom built comedy club and restaurant featuring some of the biggest names in comedy performing inside an intimate 200 seat venue featuring a state-of-the-art video and sound system. Owned and operated by comedy mastermind Justin Hollister, the former manager of the San Jose Improv saw the potential of opening a customized comedy club in downtown San Diego and relocated his wife and young family in pursuit of opening, “The greatest comedy club in the country.”
 
Bringing in headlining comics from across the country, the clubs calendar features an all-star roster with names like Doug Benson, Ari Shaffir, Brian Posehn, JB Smoove, Harland Williams and Dave Foley from Kids in The Hall all performing multiple dates in March and April. For local comedians, Hollister will be holding monthly auditions on the last Tuesday of every month where he’ll scout talent and determine potential performers at the club.

SanDiego.com was at The American Comedy Co. on opening night (March 1, 2012) with headliner and hometown hero Bobby Lee from MADTV. Watch the video above for a glimpse into San Diego’s newest comedy club.

In celebration of their grand opening, for the month of March The American Comedy Co. is offering free tickets for Tuesday & Wednesday shows by emailing info@americancomedyco.com
