The Funny Bone in Columbus is considered to be an “A” room in the comedy world. It is located just inside Easton Town Center in Northeast Columbus, Ohio. This is the hub location (headquarters) for the Funny Bone clubs in the Midwest. Other locations include Dayton, Ohio: Newport, KY (near Cincinnati), Omaha, Nebraska: Syracuse, New York: Des Moines, Iowa: Hartford, Connecticut: Virginia Beach, Virginia. There are other Funny Bones in the country including Baton Rouge, Louisiana and more, but they are not booked by Dave Stroupe, the man behind the booking of most of these rooms mentioned above.
To get booked for the Funny Bone you have to already be famous or get in front of Dave Stroupe. He does National Showcases one Thursday per month. You have to email him to get on these showcases. Include the pertinent info on the email to get on the showcase including who you are, where you are from and a very abbreviated list of comedy credits or accomplishments and a video link and he generally is pretty good about getting back to people. His email is email@example.com
