Comedic Relocation

New, 3 comments

Atlanta's oldest comedy club, The Punchline, has announced it will close its home of more than three decades in April, opting for an undisclosed venue elsewhere in town. A co-owner tells the Atlanta Business Chronicle a "variety of things lined up with redevelopment coming in Sandy Springs and some exciting things happening around metro Atlanta," spurring the relocation. The curtain first lifted on the legendary stage in 1982, and it's since hosted the biggest names in comedy history, including Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen and Dave Chappelle. Any guesses on where the jokes might be going?
