Crack Me Up: Comedy Nights in Hong Kong

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and if that’s the case, then our city’s comedy clubs are the perfect remedy. Luckily for us, there’s a comedy night on almost every day of the week, bringing both well-known faces and amateur comics to the stage, as well as offering you the spotlight for your own five minutes of fame.
