An Evening of Live Comedy


There is no better way to end the week than with a laugh. Lake Carolyn, 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 and scenic views. Over 2,500 people each year take in the professional comedic performances, local talent competition, and great food.

Comedy Showcase Opportunity
Local up-and-coming comedians have the opportunity to vie for the title of Irving's Funniest Comic at this year's Laughs by the Lake. Selected participants will perform their funniest five-minute set on stage, where the audience will vote live for their favorite entertainer. The winner walks away with the title and cash prize.
