The Caravan is more than just a comedy club, it's the best night out in Louisville. Whether you are watching a performance by some of the world's top comedians, enjoying one of our local beers, or attending a party in our unique event space, you'll be having fun.
The foundation of The Caravan lies in presenting a superior comedy show from start to finish each night using only the best talent from around the world. The Caravan believes that comedy is art, and art is clever - we uniformly reject tired comics looking for an outlet to test the limits of vulgarity. Our search for originality and professionalism is unrelenting, and we pride ourselves on both identifying the best of the day and cultivating future stars.
But great talent alone isn't the key to a great show. We take great pains to mix and match the different material, styles, and pacing of our professional comedians in order to ensure the best combinations possible. The result is consistency: The Caravan constructs a great show every night.
Upping the Ante
The Caravan is the premiere comedy club in Louisville.
Technically speaking, The Caravan is no slouch either. The memorabilia and record collection on the club's walls creates the feeling of a shrine to comedy, while offering unobstructed views from every seat in the house. The Caravan employs a state-of-the-art audio-visual system, ensuring appropriate acoustics and lighting, so good that we record and produce comedy albums live inside the club.
Spend an evening at The Caravan to see, taste, and experience the difference.

Q: How old do I have to be to get into the club?
A: You must be 18 or older with a valid ID for admittance into the club. Occasionally, we do have shows that permit children under 18, if accompanied by an adult. These shows will be advertised as such.
Q: Do I need to arrive at the show early?
A: Yes. We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 45 minutes before showtime. Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Our shows frequently sell out and reservations are held only until 30 minutes before showtime. The only way to ensure seating is with an advance ticket purchase, which holds your seat right up to our showtime (this will not ensure group seating together if you show up at showtime and we have a sold out show). If we have guests in need of seating at that time, your reservation will be cancelled.
Q: What is the cover charge?
A: Ticket prices vary from show to show. See our CALENDAR for more information.
