Venue Description

Looking for something different for your next quarterly managers meeting? A new venue for an upcoming seminar? Can't seem to find the right place for your holiday party? From meetings to weddings, The Laughing Derby has a great deal to offer:

  • Bar/Restaurant Happy Hours | It's completely free to host your event at our bar. If you have a group of 25 or more, we'll provide a fun atmosphere much classier than the typical dive bar and more personal than the average restaurant. Admission is 18+ (21+ in the bar). And should your group decide to attend the show afterwards, everyone gets half price tickets!
  • Private Events | If you'd like to rent our showroom for a private event, we can accommodate up to 220 people seated! You can use it for meeting space, a party, a catered dinner, or anything else you can imagine. We can provide music, AV equipment, or anything else you need.


The Laughing Derby's space comprises approximately 5,000 square feet and includes a lobby with a bar area, restrooms and a showroom which seats as many as 220 people.

Our showroom features a state of the art audio-visual system, including a 52 inch projector screen linked to two computers, enabling just about any type of computer generated visual presentation, we also have two large flat-screen TV monitors on the same wall.

The Laughing Derby features a fully-staffed catering kitchen.

The Laughing Derby is conveniently located in the Mid City Mall off of Bardstown Road in Louisville.

We have parking facilities for several hundred automobiles and access to valet parking services upon request.

The Laughing Derby provides a number of party packages to fit just about any budget. Each package offers you the opportunity to select from dozens of combinations of hors d'oeuvres, entrees, side dishes, and desserts to compliment full or partial access to Morty's bar and, of course, an unabridged private performance by a regular line-up of professional touring comedians. Private functions at The Laughing Derby typically combine any or all of the following services:
