Comedy Clubs In York Pennsylvania

Comedy Clubs in York, Pennsylvania

Located in south central Pennsylvania, not far from the Maryland border, York touts itself as the “Factory Tour Capital of the World.” But there is far more to this small city than tours of the Harley Davidson Motorcyle Company and the nearby Hershey Chocolate World. In fact, there’s plenty to laugh about in York. The area hosts several comedy clubs and theaters where you can have a fun and memorable night of comedy.

Pullo Center

Located on Penn State University’s York satellite campus, the Pullo Family Center for the Performing Arts features a 1,000-seat theater and hosts all kinds of concerts, plays, musicals, and live performers-including comedians. Comedians to have graced the stage there include Tracy Morgan of “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” fame. An updated schedule for each academic year, along with ticket prices and information for individual comedy shows, can be found at the Pullo Center’s website:
