When the big names in comedy come to Boston, you'll find them at the Wilbur. Since the closing of the Comedy Connection in 2008, the Wilbur is your best bet if you want to see nationally renowned comics like Jim Gaffigan, Lisa Lampanelli, Patton Oswalt, and Margaret Cho. The room is classy, and has relatively recently acquired a liquor license (we all know that this is key), and it’s always exciting to see a great comedian in a packed 1,100-seat theater.  Spring for the floor-level seats if you are tall (see: above 5'6"), as the balcony does not afford a lot of legroom.
