A Brief History of Rocketship Comedy:
Rocketship Comedy is a banner that represents high quality, independent stand up comedy shows in Indianapolis. Stand up comedy is rising again, and we are doing everything we can to have a great stand up comedy scene in this city. Showcasing comedians from all across the country, and sprinkling in our best locals, we always have a professional show.
Rocketship Comedy began as a weekly showcase in a punk bar called the Sinking Ship in 2011. This weekly showcase would see some of the greats hit it’s stage, such as Doug Stanhope and Kyle Kinane. This showcase eventually ended up at this venue, but Rocketship continued to grow.
Rocketship still produces it’s weekly showcase on Sundays with the best touring and local comics. Since then, we’ve also started several monthly showcases around Indianapolis. And now, a festival!
