The wait is over! New Arts District comedy club Wiseguys Comedy Las Vegas opens in September with tickets on sale now. The calendar is already stacked with heavy-hitting acts. ⁠


Located at 1511 S. Main St., in the former Clay Arts building, the 4,300-square-foot venue kicks things off with its weekly Bucket List Open Mic on Tuesday, September. 7. The open mic night is followed by opening weekend performances by Zoltan Kaszas from September 9 to 11. Upcoming shows include:⁠

• U.S. history/comedy podcast The Dollop Podcast on Sept. 14

• stoner comedian and actor Doug Benson (“Super High Me”) on October 9⁠

Cristela Alonzo, who created, produced and starred in ABC’s “Cristela,” on October 15 and 16⁠

• Emmy-nominated writer Nimesh Patel (“SNL,” “A Little Late with Lilly Singh”) on October 22 and 23

Maria Bamford, star of semi-autobiographical Netflix series “Lady Dynamite” and voice actor (“Bojack Horseman,” “Big Mouth”) on November 12 and 13


While the Wiseguys brand is new to Las Vegas, it’s a seasoned comedy institution in Utah, where it’s operated venues in Salt Lake City, Ogden, and West Jordan since 2001. Wiseguys is owned by Keith Stubbs, who also runs Wiseguys clubs in Salt Lake City, Ogden, and West Jordan, Utah. Those venues host comedians such as SNL alums Kevin Nealon and David Spade, Netflix stand-up star Christina P, veteran comic Eddie Griffin, “Chopped 420” host Ron Funches, and more. Soon, we’ll be able to catch that caliber of talent right on Main Street. The Las Vegas location will feature a 950-square-foot outdoor patio, a full bar and a limited food menu.⁠

Most strikingly, the building features bold murals of iconic comedians by Arizona artist Gina Ribaudo. The wall facing Main Street features Whoopi Goldberg and Don Rickles. Around the corner, the wall is graced by Richard Pryor, Joan Rivers, and Pauly Shore, who now resides in Las Vegas and is a constant fixture around Downtown Las Vegas.
