HOUSTON – Not a weekend person? Maybe, you're simply tired of going to the same bars?

We compiled a list of Houston venues that offer a good laugh with that cold drink.

Here are some of our favorite spots:



Get rid of your Monday blues with Punchline Mondays at Axelrad. Located in Midtown, Axelrad holds weekly stand-up comedy shows at 8 p.m. There is never a cover, but they do encourage to show some love to their comedians with a tip.
