Urban Solace

Readers’ vote 

Take 5


This brewpub has stand-up and open mic comedy nights every Thursday. Mostly featuring artistes from Bangalore Comedy Club {a group of stand-up comedians from the city}, the event lets you sit back with a mug of beer and enjoy a laughter-filled evening, or even take up the stage and unleash your fun side.

When: Thursdays, 8pm onwards

Urban Solace

Known to be Bangalore’s first and longest playing stand up and open mic comedy night, LOL @ Urban Solace {every Wednesdays} has been on for nearly five years now. Having been the starting point for artistes such as  Kanan Gill, Vamsidhar Bhogaraju and Biswa Kalyan Rath, we think this might be the perfect way to give yourself an entertaining mid-week break.

When: Wednesdays, 8pm onwards

The Local

Head to The Local on a Monday evening and beat those weekday blues with their Loco Mondays – Standup Comedy and Open Mic. Laugh yourself silly with acts by comics from Bangalore Comedy Club or talented patrons of the pub. Throw in a drink or two and you’ve got yourself a perfect Monday, we think.

When: Mondays, 8.30pm onwards

The Biere Club

The Biere Club believes in starting the weekend early with a hilarious evening of stand-up comedy every Thursday. Naveen Richard {Bangalore-based stand-up comedian}, Amogh Ranadive {Mumbai-based comedian and humour writer} and Sapan Verma {one of India’s youngest comedians and founding member of East India Comedy} are among the artistes who have performed here.

When: Thursdays, 8.30pm onwards

Rangoli Metro Art Centre

This cultural space becomes the venue for the Bengaluru Laughter Carnival Mini on the first Sunday of every month. Organised by Punchtantraa {a collaboration of artistes focussing on the artform of radical mime}, this monthly event sees a group of talented, stand up comedians as well as other artistes like illusionists and jugglers who go all out to give you an entertaining Sunday.

When: First Sunday of every month, 7pm onwards

Price: INR 300
