The Comedy Catch
Making Chattanooga Laugh Since 1985!
So these two kids from Jersey walk into a bar…….
It sounds like the start of a joke, but it isn’t. Keeping Chattanooga entertained for the last 27 years has been serious business for Michael Alfano and Cheryl Gorrian.
In the summer of 1985 The Comedy Catch debuted as Chattanooga's first full time comedy club, then located in Dr. Sages atop the since demolished Holiday Inn downtown. Comedians Kens Sons and Les McCurdy started the club but soon relocated the club to its present Brainerd Road location and was renamed The Comedy Catch at the Cafe. Being comedians they missed touring and performing comedy nation wide and decided to sell the Brainerd Rd business to Alfano and Gorrian.
It was a rather small and intimate club back then; seating about 100; with the restaurant, now named, Giggles Grill downstairs and the Show Room upstairs. Improvements over the years boosted the clubs’ seating capacity to around 150 until the Great Remodel of 2000 transformed The Comedy Catch into the jewel it is today. The club is now all on one level and the Show Room can comfortably seat 250 with state of the art sound and lighting. One thing that hasn’t changed in the last 25 years is the hands on ownership, delicious food and beverages, and the best service staff in town.
