An Evening of Live Comedy

There is no better way to end the week than with a laugh. The Levy Event Plaza, located in the Las Colinas Urban Center, provides a beautiful backdrop for an evening of live entertainment. Laughs by the Lake is the largest outdoor comedy show in North Texas. The show offers adults free fun, scenic views and great food.

Over 1,500 people are expected to take in the live comedic performances. Announcement on comedians will be made soon.

While there will be no profanity or obscene language, all comedic content is designed and intended for an adult audience. All ages are welcome to attend; however, parental caution is recommended for this PG-13 show.

Important Information:

  • Bring a blanket and/or lawn chair, as seating is not provided.
  • No alcohol may be brought into the event site; outside food and beverage are permitted.
  • Leashed, well-behaved dogs are permitted; dogs that cause a disruption for attendees must be removed from the venue. The handler is responsible for controlling and cleaning up after the dog at all times.
  • Please refrain from smoking within the event grounds.


Event parking is available in area parking garages for $10 per vehicle, cash only (no bills larger than $20 accepted). Garages open to the public one hour before the event.

Attendees also are encouraged to ride the DART Orange Line to the Las Colinas Urban Center Station. A free shuttle service will transport attendees between the station and the event; no pets permitted on the shuttle.
