Professional Comedy in the Fox Valley: Two Comedy Clubs and Other Settings for Humor

One of the interesting things about the Appleton area and the Fox Valley community is the abundance of entertainment opportunities. In the area of humor, people may be surprised to find that there are two dedicated comedy clubs in the and a variety of other settings to see professional comedians. An article by Jim Collar of the Post-Crescent, "Rivalry between Skyline Comedy Cafe and Comedy Quarter spills into courts," illustrates the positives (though it also covers the unfortunate legal battle between the two competing comedy clubs):
For fans of live stand-up comedy, there has never been a better time to call the Fox Cities home. Two competing clubs — the long-established Skyline Comedy Cafe in Appleton and the upstart Comedy Quarter in the Town of Menasha — offer a choice as both typically stage shows four nights each week.

And, the clubs aren't the only options, with venues such as Appleton's Fox Cities Performing Arts Center and the Green Bay area's Weidner Center, Resch Center and Oneida Casino bringing in A-list comedians.
People in the area really appreciate humor and tend to have a great sense of humor, in my biased opinion. Thus, I can get away with some of my wacky web pages (e.g., the Wonder Whacker at and not be driven out of town. Not yet, anyway.
