An Evening of Comedy and Music

There is no better way to end the week than with a laugh.  Lake Carolyn, located in the Las Colinas Urban Center, provides a beautiful backdrop for an evening of comedy and live music.  Laughs by the Lake is the largest outdoor comedy show in North Texas.  The show offers adults free entertainment, scenic views and a variety of food and beverage options.  
2016 brought the largest crowd in the show's three-year history!  Attendees enjoyed performances by national comedians Matthew Broussard, Wendy Liebman and Myq Kaplan, as well as returning host and local entertainer Comedian Q.  Stay tuned for the 2017 line-up.
