The Laughing Tap is an 18+ venue. No one under 16 will be admitted even if accompanied by parent or guardian. Please note, some shows may have a strict 21+ restriction. Check the event listing for details.
The Laughing Tap does not offer refunds although we are happy to exchange your tickets to a different event if seating is available.
Do you have a drink minimum?
No! Our events are about the entertainment you are seeing, therefore a fully stocked bar with craft beer on tap, cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks options are available to those that want to drink responsibly.
Do I have to print my tickets?
Nope – Save a tree! You can simply give your name at the ticket window. Please note, you may be asked for ID.
Doors open 1 hour prior to show time unless otherwise stated. Please arrive with your party early to ensure you can sit together. Your tickets may be re-sold if you arrive after the show has started.
We are wheelchair accessible and happy to accommodate persons with disabilities. Please note when purchasing tickets if you have a wheelchair or walker so we may assist you.
Ample street parking is FREE after 6pm and a convenient pay lot is available half a block away (corner of 5th and Pierce). If you plan on drinking before, during, or after the show please use a Lyft or Uber to ensure you can come back and laugh with us again in the future!
Heckling and Disturbing the Performance
Heckling of any kind is NOT ALLOWED and violators along with their entire party will be asked to leave. Heckling is interrupting, talking to, or otherwise disturbing the comic and/or audience during the show. Trust us, you are NOT “making the show better” or “helping the comics out” in any way. If a comic directly engages you in conversation, you may respond, but don’t take this as an open invitation to talk.
Photo and Video
Filming and Recording of events is strictly prohibited and violators will be removed from the show. If you need to use your phone or other device please step out of the show so you do not disturb the audience around you or the comics on stage.
We offer a full bar featuring Wisconsin beers on tap, cocktails, wine, soda and more! The bar is open before, during and after shows! You must be 21+ to drink at The Laughing Tap. Please bring your ID. No carry-ins are allowed! It is a violation of Wisconsin State Law to bring in outside beverages.
All bags are subject to search. Do not bring backpacks or large bags.
Pricing, show times and show line ups are subject to change. Follow us on social media and check information for events on our website for updates or changes.
