Goodnights’ new permanent spot is now open for (show) biz.

Interlude, over. … Goodnights Comedy Club is making its debut this week at its new underground Village District locale—churning out the comics and laughs, natch, with top-notch comedy headliners Anthony Jeselnik, Kelsey Cook and Dave Attell among the first big names to christen the stage. 

Since the final curtain closed at its Morgan Street digs, the legendary laugh house has been supplying the sillies via its temporary space in the defunct K&W Cafeteria. Now, Goodnights’ new permanent home—situated underneath what will soon be a wraparound Shake Shack (stay tuned for opening updates!)—will be amping up Village District as the new hip place to hang.

“We’re thrilled to welcome guests into Goodnights’ permanent new home!” says Goodnights owner Brad Grossman. “After months of hosting guests in our temporary location, we’re ready to unveil our new space, which is packed with amenities to further enhance the comedy club experience. Goodnights is a Raleigh institution and we’re proud to continue to honor our roots and legacy while also enhancing the overall atmosphere.”

With 11,000 square feet, two stages (doubling its comedic capacity!), the space to hold a 300- to 325- person audience, and low ceilings, the setting is thoughtfully designed to foster a sense of community and an ideal comedy setting.

To boot, the new venue is a vision—literally—thanks to a massive mural of DTR by local artist Jennifer Ross spread across the backdrop of the stand-up stage. It’s (finally) time to say hello to the new Goodnights!
