Wise Guys Comedy Showroom, which opened first in 1985, and after a 7year
vacation reopened in October 2007 in Franklin Square, is now ready to
announce its grand opening at its new home. On Friday, August 14th, the
first general admission show will take place at 201 South Salina Street
(formerly Traditions of Syracuse) at 8 pm. (Thursday evenings show will
be by invitation only.)
After months of searching, Wise Guys finally found the right new location.
This new spot is worthy of our guests and our world-famous talent
beautiful, unique, spacious and located in the heart of downtown Syracuse.
Formerly Traditions of Syracuse at 201 South Salina Street, this historic
building has it all a grand wooden bar with a special spot for our
slight-of-hand magician, Dan Uzunoff, and our tarot card reader, a beautiful
dining room that will be able to cater special parties before the show, and
of course the famous Wise Guys Comedy Showroom Stage in the lower level.
