Comedy at the Castle

Professional comedians provide some giggles to the guests and ghosts of the historic Pythian Castle in Springfield.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

Pythian Castle has always been on the map as a historical haunted landmark, but now it has added comedy nights to its schedule. Make reservations for the first Saturday of the month to get your laughs with stand-up comedy and dinner to boot.

Professional, nationally touring comedians grace the stage at the Pythian Castle to perform their comedy acts. In fact, you may have even seen some of them on TV. You can come and enjoy the show alone. Or you can make reservations to come early and have dinner, too. The menu may change, but it’s usually steak sliders, rosemary roasted potatoes, chopped salad and brownie delight.

This might be a night to leave the kids with the sitter; the comedy is usually geared toward the adult crowd.  And when you come to Pythian Castle on a comedy night, you can expect some mingling and hanging out in the castle at first. Right before the show starts, guests head into the castle’s theater. The theater has both regular theater and table-and-chair seating. There’s a beer-and-wine cash bar open throughout the show, too.

Once you are settled in, prepare for 90 minutes of comedy, from the opening act to the featured comedian.
