When it came to choosing the best venue for stand-up comedy from the exhaustive list of two full-time comedy clubs actually located in metro Atlanta, new kid on the block THE LAUGHING SKULL LOUNGE
got our vote. The club not only provides audiences with nationally known headliners such as Doug Benson and Jennifer Coolidge on a weekly basis, but with a max capacity of 74, its also made comedy in Atlanta more intimate. As an added bonus, it shares space with the Midtown Vortex, so even if the comic doesnt make you laugh, the club can keep you happily fed. 878 Peachtree St. 877-523-3288. www.vortexcomedy.com.
