About Laugh Boston
Laugh Boston opened the doors to its 300-seat state-of-the-art comedy theater in September of 2013. The venue features premier stand-up comedy, including a weekly show called Boston Accents, as well as national acts. Laugh Boston is located in Boston’s Seaport District in the Westin Waterfront Hotel directly across from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Laugh Boston features a full bar and a light fare, quick-serve menu. Laugh Boston has stand-up shows every Wednesday through Saturday night and is available for Group Events, Private Bookings and more! Over the past few years, and, as theater operators and performers, the Laugh Boston ownership team noticed a dearth of stand-up venues in Boston in the mid-level range. While there are a few remaining clubs in the 100-150 capacity, there remains a gap with no mid-range club. Because of that gap, the comedy scene has suffered greatly. A good portion of national names, and certainly regional and local stars, do not have the ability to “sell” a larger theater. As a direct result of the gap in Boston’s market, the performers are forced to work in other cities and industries, such as convention appearances and cruise ships.
