Seeing live comedy can be very entertaining, and when you pair it with great food and drink, it can make for a really fun night out. The Painted Pig in Canton has one of the only live comedy shows OTP every Saturday night. After going to the Painted Pig several times for dinner, we finally got the chance to go for the comedy show.
Appropriately called “The Laughing Pig,” the upstairs bar at the popular Painted Pig restaurant becomes an intimate comedy club setting every Saturday night at 8:00. Each show has 3-4 comedians who do their thing while you are able to sit back and enjoy cocktails or dinner from their yummy menu.
Having been to couple ITP comedy clubs and ordering food off their menus, the Painted Pig is definitely superior. No fast bar food here — it’s all chef-prepared and delicious. They even walk around with a fancy dessert tray to tempt you near the end of the show. Live music starts at 10:00, so you can stay for that too if you aren’t ready to head home yet!
The show runs just under two hours, and the comedians wait in the back to meet people afterward.
If you’ve ever seen live comedy, you know that some of the entertainment comes from just observing the people in the crowd. It’s no different at the Laughing Pig; the small setting definitely seems to get some people a little rowdy… all in good fun though! The content is definitely “adult” so be prepared!
Reservations are a great idea, but not always required. If you know earlier in the day that you are going to the show, calling ahead assures you will get a good table for your party. The ticket price is just added onto your bar/food tab. It couldn’t be easier!
