The Comedy Studio is located at the top of the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square and is open Wednesday thru Sunday. Shows start at 8pm and are priced between $10 and $12, unless otherwise noted.

New American menu and bar service available (yes, they have scorpion bowls!). Full Chinese food menu available downstairs till 3 AM.

The Comedy Studio was formed when a bunch of comedians looked around the industry and thought, "We could add a new twist to this". Sometimes that means new talent, sometime it's veterans pushing their boundaries. We assume more from the audience, and we demand more from ourselves. The casual, open, atmosphere of the Studio is the place where fresh talent is discovered and where national headliners come to try out their new material and polish up the old.

Wednesday nights are co-hosted by Kelly McFarland and Tony V. Thursday night features edgy political comedy at The Thursday Night Fights, or bask in the glory of "The Geek Council". Friday night showcases sketch, videos, and standup comedy from Piston Honda. Saturday features a more traditional format of headliners and other acts, while Sunday, hosted by Sam Walters, is open to newcomers as well as the funniest sketch comedy troupes in the Boston area.

Whichever night you choose to fill a seat, you're sure to see something unique, and you're sure to be entertained.
