The Art of Comedy | When it comes to Atlanta Comedy Clubs... SIZE MATTERS! We are the smallest full-time comedy venue in the WORLD and located right here in Atlanta! Yes, that is correct... if you can find a full-time comedy club with less than 74 seats, we will give you a prize! What is that prize? We do not know because we dont think you can find one!

How does this size benefit you? Because stand-up comedy is a personal art form best enjoyed in an intimate setting, and you can not get any more intimate than Atlanta's Laughing Skull Lounge! Our lounge is only 22' wide and 32' long with three rows of stadium seating in the back which means there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

Plus we are Atlanta's only full-time progressive comedy lounge, located in Midtown Atlanta in the heart of Atlanta's Midtown Mile, hidden in the back of The Vortex Bar & Grill on Peachtree Street. This intimate setting, along with these amazing comedians, gives you a comedy experience that you can not find any where else... period! And you can come early or stay late to eat at one of Atlanta's best restaurants... The Vortex has won best burger in Atlanta since 1992 and was recently on The Travel Channel's "Man vs Food" for their triple by-pass burger.

Please be aware that The Laughing Skull Lounge is not like most comedy clubs as we do not sell food during the show, all shows are no-smoking, and our main focus is on showcasing stand-up comedy as an art form to the people of Atlanta. The best way to explain the difference between us and all other comedy clubs is that most comedy clubs focus on playing Top 40, while we focus on playing Jazz.

So if you are in Atlanta and want to experience stand-up comedy in one of Atlanta's coolest venues, get your tix now! And then you can experience for yourself how Atlanta's Laughing Skull Lounge is different from all the other comedy clubs.




There are 52 total General Admission seats in the club, and you are GUARANTEED a seat just not location. General Admission occupies the middle, the side, and the back portion of the room. This includes the comfy bleacher seating that has a bar to set your drink on in the very back of the club. General Admission seats are FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, and CANNOT BE RESERVED - even for large parties. For GA seating, we recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to any show time to ensure you get your pick of seats. Arriving closer to showtime will mean less options of seating. But… our room only holds 80 total so there’s not a bad seat in the house! General Admission seats can only be purchased on the main "event" page. See image below for reference. 


1 - We are located at 878 Peachtree St NE. inside the Vortex in Midtown. There's another Vortex in Little 5 Points. We are not there.
2 - Our club has a 2 drink minimum. This means when you come to the club you purchase 2 drinks while you're there. This applies to all customers, and drinks include soda and water. Please see our MENU for options.
3 - For refunds or transfers please see policy below.
4 - We recommend every guest arrive 30 minutes prior to show time to be able to get a drink, get settled in their seats, and avoid the line of people who are also running late. If you are late, we will hold your seats for up to 30 minutes after the start of the show. After that they are not guaranteed.
5 - We DO NOT serve food in the club. If you want to grub, please do so before OR after the show. We're attached to a sweet little restaurant that can accommodate any and all hunger needs.
6 - There's NO SMOKING in the club. This includes vape pens, e-cigs, or any other computerized form of smoking that has been dreamed up.
7 - Because of the volume of requests, we DO NOT do any special birthday (or other events) shout outs, etc., People celebrate their bdays with us often and on many nights we'll have a few people turning the dial on the old age gauge. We only have 90 minutes to entertain the hell out of you so to take time out of every show for shout out would be too hard. We promise we wish you the happiest of birthdays though.
