Minnesotaäó»s first stand-up comedy showcase style club opened May 7, 2016. Royal Comedy Theatre is located on Mainstreet in Hopkins, a suburb ten minutes west of Minneapolis with small town charm. Showcase style clubs are common in New York and Los Angeles where many comedians live (i.e. Comedy Cellar and The Comedy Store). Luckily, due to the growing population of stand-up comedians in Minnesota, this niche style club is able to feature five or more professional comedians every week. On a typical night, you might see a nationally touring comedian working out some new jokes and another stand-up comedian polishing their best material for comedy festivals and television appearances. Every week is different, and a variety of stand-up comedy style acts are always represented in the line up. You never know who might drop in to test out their material.
