Bananas Comedy Club
2170 South Rd. Poughkeepsie, NY 845-462-3333
If there's a comedic equivalent of "George Washington slept here," it's probably "Jerry Seinfeld performed here" or "Chris Rock performed here." Within the confines of the Clarion Hotel, Bananas' ability to boast both headliners and hundreds more A-listers reflects the kind of history comedy cred that most venues covet.
With a show every Friday night and two every Saturday night, you can add a four-course dinner package to the ticket cost -- $21.95 per person -- and get priority seating in the process. Best of all? There's never a drink minimum, and shows are open to audience members 16 and older. -Chris Serico
