Las Vegas comedy clubs were among the first entertainment venues to reopen after the forced shutdowns of spring 2020, partially because stand-up shows require less production and people to get onstage. Although they endured smaller-than-usual audiences for months, these intimate clubs were instrumental in bringing live entertainment back to the Strip and the city at large.
But one of the newest comedy spots remained closed throughout 2020 and 2021, and it’s finally opening its doors and turning on its lights again this week—Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club at the Linq Promenade.
“Las Vegas is my hometown and live entertainment was hit harder here than anyplace. It’s time to stop inhaling and get back to laughing,” Kimmel said in a statement. “We have a great lineup of comedians who are more than ready to get back to doing what they love in the city we love.”
