The original Laff Stop was discontinued back in 2009, and then once again in the same building, Sherlock’s Pub recently suffered the same fate. We’re here to remember them both for giving so much to the comedy scene in Houston. Here is the rest of the story.

A home for local live comedy, Sherlock’s Pub was a staple within the stand up community. Not just a place to showcase your act, but also a place for comics to work on their material. Every Monday night, Sherlock’s was the most attended open mic in the city of Houston, bringing in over 45 local comedians, while also including professional comedians on tour.
As sad as it is to see it close, we are here to celebrate it and everything that it brought to the Houston comedy scene.
