Do locals go to the comedy clubs on the strip?

    Just curious. I've often read that many of the locals avoid the strip, which I understand. But I have yet to find any off-strip comedy clubs. Not talking about comedy shows, per se. But actual clubs. On the strip you have Brad Garrett's @ MGM, Laugh Factory @ Trop, Riviera Comedy Club, Las Vegas Live @ PH, Improv @ Harrah's, and LA Comedy Club @ Bally's. Each club has a rotating roster of different comics each week, so just curious if anyone here ever braves the strip for a night at a comedy club?

    The comedy clubs are something I enjoyed as a tourist and continued to enjoy as a local. We also see headliners when they pass through town. The Palms and Hard Rock (techinically off-strip) regularly host headliners.

    I've also seen a show at Sapphire, they do comedy on Fri/Sat nights. There are some video poker bars that do open mic nights and comedy themed nights too. Shakespeares Pub & Grill in Henderson, and Bar 702 come to mind.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a favorite comedy club? Should I try and catch a headliner if there is one while I am in town instead?
