New Comedy Club coming to Dubuque

Dubuque, IA (October 2019): Having started almost a decade ago in the Windy City, The Comedy Bar promises to give Dubuque a hilariously delicious comedy club experience beginning November of this year. To launch their newest location, winner of FOX’s Masterchef, Gerron Hurt, will be collaborating with the comedy staple to offer an exclusive menu designed by the Chef himself. Shows will be held every weekend at The Comedy Bar’s brand new showroom located on the lower level of the Novelty Iron building at the corner of 10th and Washington. Tickets are $16 for general admission, with food and beverage being sold separately. Their dinner menu features southern favorites from Chef Gerron’s restaurant concept. Southern Ego, located just above The Comedy Bar, near the main lobby. Signature items include the Blazin’ Bird Nashville hot chicken sliders, baked mac n cheese, and homemade bread pudding, just to name a few. Of course, no bar would be complete without delicious cocktails; guests will also be able to purchase from an array of specialty drinks offered exclusively at The Comedy Bar’s Dubuque location. The club also plans to include their pizza partners, Gino’s East, on their menu in the upcoming months once the pizza chain’s Dubuque location has launched.

“We are extremely excited to bring our brand of laughs to Dubuque, especially with Chef Gerron,” says Kyle Lane of The Comedy Bar, “We’ve been fans of MasterChef for years and when our most recent club opened in Nashville this past March, we had the opportunity to meet Gerron and his fiancé, Brandi. Also being young entrepreneurs ourselves, a collaboration on our upcoming Dubuque club just seemed like a no-brainer. This town is full of so much life and we feel honored to be able to invest into such a vibrant community.”

The Comedy Bar is set to open to the public on Friday, November 8th of 2019 with exclusive launch parties and VIP events occurring in the days prior. Visit for more info.
