Jokes on the Beach Wants to Revive Miami's Comedy Scene, But Can It Deliver?

After last week's article on Miami's comedy venues closing en masse, New Times thought the scene needed some comic's relief. But just as both of Miami's comedy clubs closed, a new one emerged: Jokes on the Beach, located inside Trio on the Bay on the 79th Street Causeway.

Was this business savvy or luck? What role will this new club play in our fractured comedic landscape? We spoke with one of the owners, Lenny Moore, to get the inside story on what Miami's newest (and currently only) stand-up comedy club has in store for us.
