Morty's Comedy Joint is more than just a comedy club, it is the best night out in Indiana. Whether you are watching a performance by some of the world's top comedians, enjoying one of our local draft beers, or attending a party in our unique event space, you'll be having fun.
The foundation of Morty's Comedy Joint lies in presenting a superior comedy show from start to finish each night using only the best talent from around the world. Morty's Comedy Joint believes that comedy is art, and art is clever - we uniformly reject tired comics looking for an outlet to test the limits of vulgarity. Our search for originality and professionalism is unrelenting, and we pride ourselves on both identifying the best of the day and cultivating future stars.
But great talent alone isn't the key to a great show. We take great pains to mix and match the different material, styles, and pacing of our professional comedians in order to ensure the best combinations possible. The result is consistency: Morty's Comedy Joint constructs a great show every night.
Upping the Ante
The team that owns Morty's Comedy Joint also owns Wiley's Comedy Niteclub in Dayton, OH. They have a tremendous amount of experience operating successful and hip comedy clubs. In fact, Morty's Comedy Joint has been voted the best comedy club in Indianapolis three years in a row.
The ownership team is a healthy mix of comedians and businessmen - fusing the best features of dozens of clubs from across the country and business practices from around the world, and topped off with a level of sophistication previously unheard of in the industry.
Technically speaking, Morty's Comedy Joint is no slouch either. The memorabilia and record collection on the club's walls creates the feeling of a shrine to comedy, while offering unobstructed views from every seat in the house. Morty's Comedy Joint employs a state-of-the-art audio-visual system, ensuring appropriate acoustics and lighting, so good that we record and produce comedy albums live inside the club.
Spend an evening at Morty's Comedy Joint to see, taste, and experience the difference.

Q: How old do I have to be to get into the club?
A: You must be 18 or older with a valid ID for admittance into the club. We do allow those under the age of 18 if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Q: Do I need to arrive at the show early?
A: Yes. We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 45 minutes before showtime. Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Our shows frequently sell out and reservations are held only until 30 minutes before showtime. The only way to ensure seating is with an advance ticket purchase, which holds your seat right up to our showtime (this will not ensure group seating together if you show up at showtime and we have a sold out show). If we have guests in need of seating at that time, your reservation will be cancelled.
Q: Is there a dress code?
A: Yes. We want everyone to be dressed comfortably. For some that means suit and tie or dress, for others that's jeans and a t-shirt. Please keep in mind that you may be sitting next to a complete stranger. How would you want them to dress/smell and try to match that (assuming that you want them to look and smell nice. If you want them to look and smell bad you might want to go to an outdoor venue)!
Q: What is the Ticket charge?
A: Ticket prices vary from show to show. See our CALENDAR for more information. Always save money by purchasing tickets in advance online. At the door tickets will typically be $5 or more over the online sale price. Tickets can be purchased up to 90 min prior to the show start time online. After that they MUST be purchased at the door at the higher ticket price.
Q: Can I bring my gun in?
A: No, absolutely NOT. We do not allow any firearms on the premise unless you are an on-duty and uniformed police officer. If you choose not to leave your firearm at home or in the car, you will be asked to leave and no refunds will be given.
