Comedy Club Gets a Makeover

Less than a year after opening, the Riot Act Comedy Theater (801 E Street), Downtown’s only comedy club, closed last month to retool and reopen as Penn Social next week. The new social club will still serve as a comedy club in its downstairs comedy club, but will also feature live music, karaoke competitions and games. The upstairs bar will get a new look and offer a medley of activities, and a sidewalk café will add to the social motif. The Riot Act featured both local and national comedians and an open mic night, a mishmash of amateurs, veterans and giveaways.
