Space Rentals


Laugh Out Loud has two spaces available to rent by the hour for improv, sketch, or theatrical rehearsals at our Chicago location.

Our Chicago Theater is a 100 seat theater with a 12’ x 16’ stage

Book the Theater

Our Chicago Bar is next to the theater and is long narrow space with a tiny stage in the front window for rehearsals with 15-20 people

Book the Bar

Please Note:

  • There is some sound bleed between the two spaces, so please be considerate with your volume.
  • Space rental cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to reservation time for a refund.

Comedy Shows

Have an improv or sketch show you'd love to put up? Pitch us your idea!

Here is a breakdown of the way our show rentals work:

  • Each week, Laugh Out Loud - Chicago will retain the minimum rental fee from box office receipts ($75-150 depending on the day and time)
  • After the guaranteed minimum rental fee is met, the net box office receipts will be split 50/50 between Laugh Out Loud - Chicago and the Renter.
  • Please note: as Renter you provide a one week deposit with the signed contract to reserve the theater for your run (deposit is applied towards your minimum rental fees).

That way we can keep the lights on, and you have the opportunity to make money from your show.
