Hilarities 4th Street Theatre is one of the largest made-for-comedy venues in the country, presenting the best in national stand-up comedy. Hilarities features a tiered showroom that accommodates 400 guests including a mezzanine balcony with 8 individual skyboxes seating between 8 to 12 guests each. The showroom features comfortable custom-made seating. Preferred seating is available through advance ticket purchases.

Hilarities 4th Street Theatre features seven weekly shows, and the faces you’ve see onstage range from homegrown Cleveland favorites like Mike Polk to faces you’ve seen everywhere, like Dom Irrera, Dave Coulier, Rita Rudner, Sinbad, Tom Papa, Craig Robinson and the Wayans Brothers.

We offer full cocktail service with various specialty drinks, wine, beer and a wide array of non-alcoholic selections, plus a limited menu of sandwiches and appetizers designed for sharing during the performance.

In addition to providing nightly entertainment, the showroom is available for large corporate group events. The theatre is designed and wired for videoconferencing, power point, projection and state-of-the-art wireless sound presentations for groups as large as 400.


Hilarities Comedy Hall, which opened in 1986, has been credited with pioneering the revival of Cleveland’s Warehouse District. Hilarities was a downtown destination for Clevelanders for nearly twelve years, drawing nearly 130,000 visitors annually, a number which exceeded that of even the Cleveland Ballet.

Over the course of history, Hilarities succeeded in bringing attention not only to itself, but to its neighborhood and the city of Cleveland. Hilarities served up a host of now nationally prominent talent such as Tim Allen, Paul Reiser, Sinbad, Kevin Pollak, and Louie Anderson to name a few, as well as having spawned from its amateur ranks Clevelanders who have gone on to national prominence.

Hilarities has been credited with bringing the national spotlight to Cleveland more than once, including the promotion of two one-hour HBO specials staring Blake Clark and Rita Rudner, as well as nationally televised taping for Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network.” The Showtime event served as a national showcase for Cleveland talent.

Hilarities Comedy Hall, Cleveland’s Carnegie Hall of Comedy, was a proven entity in the revival and continuation of Cleveland’s live entertainment community, leaving its mark on the Historic Warehouse District. Hilarities, based on its nationwide reputation for providing live laughs and outstanding service, is now writing its newest chapter in the heart of Cleveland’s thriving Gateway Neighborhood, located on E. 4th Street.
