Surf City Comedy Club is back. Huntington Beach's newest and hottest comedy club in SoCal. Featuring the funniest, nationally touring headlining comedians this country has to offer every Saturday Night. Location: 7227 Edinger Ave. Huntington Beach, CA. Showtime: 8:05 p.m., opens at 7 p.m.

GRAND OPENING of the Surf City Comedy Club at: Endless Food & Fun -- Bob Perkell and the Surf City Comedy Club is Back in Huntington Beach, starting the new year right. Beginning in 2012 the popular comedy showcase of top national talents regained its prominence at the premier event in North Orange County, Calif.

Surf City Comedy Club features the best talent around the nation. Each week the Martini Blues (formerly a jazz club) brings top acts from Los Angeles and nationally to Huntington Beach's club atmosphere for a free show. Surf City Comedy Club is absolutely one of the best deals in the region.

When going, the atmosphere is not upscale. You can dress up if you like in this supper club where dinner such as steaks, appetizers and food plates are served late with cocktails or beer on tap. But you can also wear jeans, as there's a sports bar on site and a rock-n-roll vibe that often takes over the place.

Surf City Nights was originally hosted as a Comedy Club with Bill Word. He gave comedy classes and and had comedy act competitions. Martini Blues was sold and the new management went another direction, requesting Bob Perkell take the the helm of the comedy event, as Word had relocated his gig to a club in Anaheim.

Surf City Comedy moniker somewhat limits the branding of this event as it would draw greater audience if it featured the acts' global reach and Los Angeles club influence, as well as their many media credits. Thus, the attendance doesn't quite reach its potential on many Thursdays, and the longevity of this wonderful club night is not a given, according to our estimates. So, if you love comedy and you don't dig driving to L.A., stay in OC and pick up some great stuff in the night clubs around the county. In addition to Martini Blues, you'll find comedy nights at Gallaghers Pub in downtown Huntington Beach, just off Main Street at Walnut, across from Crabby Kenny's.

Where to stay: The two closest hotels are Hotel Huntington Beach near the Bella Terra Mall and 405 Freeway, and Extended Stay near Boeing and the 22 Freeway.
