Located in the heart of San Diego’s historic downtown, The American Comedy Company brings you the best comedians on tour today, in an old-world atmosphere which adheres to the Gaslamp Quarter’s speakeasy past.
When nationally touring stand-up comedians come to San Diego, they come to The American Comedy Company. Thanks to our intimate, old-city space, you’ll get up close and personal with your favorite comedian. Some of our featured performers include Joe Rogan, Jay Mohr, Kevin Nealon and Craig Robinson.
Think you’ve got what it takes? We host an open-mic night for anyone looking to showcase their talents. If you think you have the jokes to keep people laughing, come on down the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm to sign-up for the show at 8pm. The crowd will be waiting.
While the comedy keeps you laughing, the food will keep you satisfied. We’re really proud of our Bavarian Pretzel Bites, plus we've got options like Chicken & Waffles and Portobella Mushroom Sliders that elevate our menu from typical bar food. Try our Half-Baked Cookie Dough Sundae or Kahlua Mud Slide Float for dessert. We have a full bar and offer specialty craft cocktails (like Strawberry Fields & a Mule Bar), local craft beers on draft (like Stone IPA), and an exclusive selection of red, white, and sparkling wines.
With A-list talent like Joel McHale, Bill Burr, Tom Green, and Harland Williams, we can guarantee you won’t stop laughing. Because we’re constantly booking new stars, check our calendar, join our e-mail list to keep informed.
