Cobb’s Comedy Club

Great vibe, great crowd.  Go early to get a good seat.  It fills up pretty quickly. Their food menu is good and there is a 2 drink minimum.  Check their website for current show information and reduced validated parking.  (I would still highly recommend Muni (#30 Stockton) or a taxi.)  Before and after the show you can walk around the North Beach area and check out “the Hood”.  Lots of restaurants, bars, live music, and some great little shops.Cobb’s Comedy Club is located at 915 Columbus Avenue, just north of Lombard St., in San Francisco’s famous North Beach area.

Punch Line Comedy Club

The Punch Line is a small, comfy venue and there really is no bad seat in the house.  Expect a 2 drink minimum here as well.  Their food menu is good, quesadillas, fries, chicken wings and the like, and their drinks can be strong and a little pricey.  Check their website for current show information.

Punch Line is located in the financial district on the upper level of One. For recorded directions and parking information, call (415) 397-0644.

Judy's Tips

When you arrive in San Francisco, look for two of our free weekly publications, the SF Weekly and the Bay Guardian. They can be found on most newspaper boxes on most any street corner.

These two publications have up to the minute extensive listings of that week's events, newly announced concerts, many many small clubs and music venues. But don't expect directions or maps to these venues, that's what our Local's Insiders Secrets to San Francisco" package is for.
