About this event

Join us while you still can!

SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR FANS AND FOLLOWERS: Rocky's Market, our arts program sponsor, is closing their Brooklyn Basin location at the end of August 2022. Try as we might, we weren't able to convince the property managers to keep the Arts at the Basin program. Thanks to everyone who rallied!!! If you haven't come to a Comedy Edge show yet. . . there are only TWO shows left: this Saturday, August 20th and next Saturday, August 27th!

Let's go out BIG!!! Planning to see you all there! It's been a phenomenal ride as a producer and a comedian to be a steward to this space and this energy.

THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF ALL WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED: Since fall of 2020, every Saturday, April - October, the Comedy Edge has brought you a new diverse lineup of some of the brightest and boldest voices in comedy featuring acts that have been on Comedy Central, Netflix, and BET for a night of wildly fun, edgy, adult comedy.

From 2020-2021 we sold out 40 shows in a row! This year, in 2022, we partnered with the neighborhood to expand our audience reach and brought laughter to even more people!

Open air, covered patio with heaters and delicious organic food from a California cuisine style restaurant, plus a wonderful selection of wine, beer, and everything that comes in a boutique style gourmet grocery.

We've got you covered rain or shine!

What our audience is saying:

"Comedy Edge is that good that we came back again this Saturday."

"I just want to express how awesome these shows are and how much they mean to my wife and I! We are always looking for new date-night adventures and found a home at the comedy edge (literally been to like 10 shows)." - Ash Nec

"I wish we had known about this event and this venue sooner. Our experience truly was magical and we look forward to going back and bringing some friends. It's so amazing to have outdoor entertainment available to us." - Michelle Hill Gayle

"My wife and I drive up from Fremont to see the comedy edge occasionally, and we pretty much only do it for Comedy Edge. It’s one of the best comedy shows in the bay, always fresh, funny and good date night. We’d be there very week if we lived in Oakland." - Sami Shad

Last year, nearly half of our audience came back for more!

And just one more testimonial:

"My friend and I celebrated her birthday at the Comedy Edge a couple of weeks ago and had the best time! I can't believe we just discovered it. All the comedians were amazing - diverse and insightful and hilarious!

Since I'm on the "abundant side of cautious," it was such a bonus to see comedy in a gorgeous outdoor venue. Holly made the audience feel at home with her gifts and giveaways, especially the router from her garage. We bonded with the other guests around us, which usually doesn't happen at other shows." - Tavi Baker
