Nightlife

Best Comedy Club

Magooby’s Joke House

9603 Deereco Road, Timonium, (410) 252-2727, magoobys.com

Yeah, it’s in Timonium, but so is the State Fair, OK? Does that stop you from going to the State Fair? Plus, there’s a really good Dollar Tree store out there; no, they’re not all the same. Magooby’s is a perfect environment for the comedy spectator. It’s housed in a stepped auditorium, so nobody’s in front of you in a way that will block your view, and even when you’re in the absolute back of the space, you still have a great sightline and can hear perfectly, assuming nobody’s being a dick and heckling. The seating and exit processes are orderly and efficient, drinks are for the most part brought promptly by your server (we drink a lot, so it might not be fair to say they didn’t come fast enough), and the food is OK, but if you’re in a comedy club for the food, you should probably be up on the stage getting paid to hear people laugh at you. Magooby’s consistently offers professional comedy at least three nights a week, frequently brings in special events from touring acts, and routinely draws big-name comics for multi-night shows, as well as providing a space for neophyte local comics to bomb. One comedian we can’t name but who was on a show with the initials Saturday Night Live, personally told us he asked around for a good club with an appreciative audience that gets it, and he was told by more than one comedian that Magooby’s is one of the best clubs not only in Baltimore but in the whole U.S. of A.
