Most businesses intend to enter a new market with a bang. When The Funny Bone Comedy Club and Restaurant arrived in Columbus, Ohio, however, the sound heard was uproarious laughter. That was just the start.
Co-Founder Mitch Kutash and Gerald Kubach opened the first Funny Bone in Pittsburgh, PA after Gerald became enthralled with a comedy show. Years later, The Funny Bone has invaded over 25 markets and is still expanding today.
The Columbus Funny Bone, located at the Easton Town Center, has been bringing nationally-recognized humorists to Central Ohio since 1987. Such superstars as Drew Carey, Jim Breuer, Kathleen Madigan, John Pinette, DL Hughley, Gabriel Iglesias, Josh Blue and Dave Chappelle have dazzled Columbus crowds with their comedic genius. The Funny Bone also continues providing the freshest up-and-coming comedians to Columbus, as well as developing local talent.
In addition to having Columbus’ only nightly comedy shows, The Funny Bone is a recognized pioneer in accommodating diverse community needs. From hosting numerous charitable functions, such as Secret Santa and Operation Smile benefit concerts, to being the gathering place for various corporate outings and meetings, to holding children’s comedy and magic shows, The Funny Bone Comedy Club and Restaurant has etched a permanent mark in Columbus history.
