Best Place To Bust A Gut Dallas 2010 - Dallas Comedy House

Stiff drinks, hand-crafted snacks and dim lighting are par for the bar-course when it comes to things Dallasites demand in their nightlife, but they're hardly staples at comedy clubs, where overpriced booze gets served up alongside lukewarm nachos and some hack's life story. To the rescue: improv comics Amanda Austin and Clay Barton, who opened the Dallas Comedy House last year in an increasingly vigorous Deep Ellum. Offering high-quality improv classes on the cheap and stand-up comedy and variety shows seven nights a week, the Dallas Comedy House has brought in all kinds of folks searching for a spare meter along Commerce Street. Despite plentiful seating, the black-box DCH remains cozy, and the deceptively large stage supports a troupe of improv-ers or a lone stand-up with equal ease. But quality booze and service aside, the comedy at DCH hardly requires even a little funny bone-lubricating buzz.

Dearest Andrew-

Obviously you are an intelligent individual that I would never challenge to scrabble. With your keen sense of comedy I will offer you a fart joke. Please hold....

Oh Truth, you should know that empiricism on the opinion-based nature of humor is a farce at best. Aren't you being a little untrue to yourself? Unless your conclusion is based on a cross-sectional, multi-faceted research approach, wherein you've accumulated a stack of data, diagrams with comparative reports, I find it difficult to find any truth in your brief, electronically empowered annonymassertions (

Great job DCH! This is well deserved . They have worked very hard for this. Hopefully this will get some of you down to good ole Deep Ellum to see comedy. While you are down there you should also take in Ad-Libs, which is around the corner and where the DCH players all were trained. It's a different show and the laughs are side splitting. Understand please that when I say side splitting I mean both sides. That's right smart comedy so sharp it will cut you in half. Oh and they do comedy when it should be done, Friday and Saturday night at 9. Ad-Libs at MOUTH 2626 Main. Call 214-754-7050 for reservations. Congratulations again to DCH,go check out Improv in Deep Ellum!!

Well chosen! I've seen probably a dozen different shows at the DCH and they're all super fun.

Cowardly anonymous comment aside, DCH contains some of the funniest & quick witted people I've ever met. Some nights are better than others, but it's always a giggling good time. Plus their food is the bomb, baby. Nice cheap date spot too.
