Punchline Comedy Club
Now the most legendary of all comedy clubs in San Francisco, the Punchline Comedy Club has been around for more than a quarter of a century, having helped launch such stand-up geniuses as Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnell, Drew Carey, Chris Rock and Dana Carvey. The yucks may be top-of-the-line, with big-name comics still performing here, but the food is basic at best. Luckily, you probably won’t have to eat it, seeing as there are a dozen great restaurants within walking distance. On the weekends, plan to enjoy a great meal elsewhere, then walk over for the 10pm show to enjoy a drink or two and a few laughs.
