Sometimes you need more than an expertly used GIF to get you laughing out loud, and when you need something IRL to get you ROFL, we're lucky to have Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle. For the past 20 years, the joint's been providing the best stand-up comedy the Detroit area has to offer. Plus, it's featured the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jon Stewart, making it a destination for funny people on the rise.
