What we're about

(Comedy Soup is on indefinite hiatus due to Covid-19. However, Producers of the show are now working on outdoor shows compliant with Alameda County regulations, which will be posted here as they get underway. There is still the possibility on an online edition of Comedy Soup, especially as we get into winter.)

Frequently Asked Question: "Is this someone's living room?

Yes. And we're here every Friday.

Comedy Soup is Oakland's very own little Stand-Up house show that features top local and touring comics, complimentary Wine and popcorn and a musical guest from a variety of styles. We’ve been running since November 2015 and have featured performers from Netflix, Comedy Central, Amazon Prime, Viceland, Conan, Colbert and Corden and were part of the inaugural Okaland Comedy Festival.

The Show's vibe could be described as a mixture of 'Fight club' and 'Mister Roger's neighborhood.'

As of November 2019, The SF Gate named us "The Hottest Comedy Club in the Bay Area."
