“Through all the darkness, through all the shame of which men are capable, the spirit of man will remain alive on this earth. It may sleep, but it will awaken. It may wear chains, but it will breakthrough.”- Ayn Rand

AC Jokes Comedy Club is a team of comics that came together to form the only stand up comedy show ran by the comedians themselves.  Using a grassroots approach, the members began by going out on the Atlantic City Boardwalk to try and convince tourists to come to their stand up comedy shows.  They would eventually learn that what they were doing was “semi-illegal,” which made them a perfect fit for Atlantic City. Comedy Fans began to notice their combination of hard work and humor. Prior to Covid, AC Jokes was running shows in 2 rooms at the Tropicana Atlantic City, one at Ballys, and one at Caesars Pier.  AC Jokes prides itself on innovation. Following the pandemic, they brought live stand up comedy back to Atlantic City and the surrounding New Jersey/Philadelphia area by being the first to have a drive-in style show.  Currently, AC Jokes is the only show in the world that runs 7 days a week.  Stay tuned as there is much more to come from this unique dysfunctional comedy family.
