About Us / FAQs


The Comedy Nest is a great club played by great comedians in one of the world’s greatest cities! (we have to get a thesaurus) Located in downtown Montreal, on the 3rd floor of the Forum, site of the historic arena where the Canadiens won 24 Stanley Cups, we’re surrounded by stores and restaurants (sushi, smoked meat, and more!), and parking in the Forum is only $6 for the evening!

The club holds 160 people in a cabaret-style setting, and our doors open 45 minutes before showtime, so you can come early and enjoy our full-service barpre-show videos, and delicious nibbles, like fresh popcorn and corn chips with salsa.
