Chuckles and cheese make the perfect pizza toppings at a new Nashville restaurant that’s part pizzeria and part comedy club.

Eater reports that Gino’s East & The Comedy Bar opened March 14 on 3rd Avenue South. In addition to a full menu featuring Gino’s signature Chicago-style, deep-dish pies, appetizers, salads and sandwiches, it also dishes out live stand-up comedy at 10 p.m. on Thursdays and 10:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“The comedy bar offers an elevated comedy experience,” said Sahar Chavoshi, the company’s vice-president of operations, in a statement. “Every comedian is handpicked by us personally, and we support the local scene while also featuring top-notch national headliners every weekend. We’re excited to bring an authentic Chicago comedy experience to Nashville with our pizza partners.”

Gino’s East is a Chicago-based chain that has been in business since 1966. In addition to multiple Windy City-area stores, it has locations in Arlington, Texas; Lake Geneva, Wisconsin; South Haven, Michigan; and Mexico City, Mexico.

The Nashville store will also offer Gino’s latest specialty pizza, the #DeepAF pizza, which features 33 percent more dough, 75 more cheese, and double the toppings compared to a regular deep-dish Gino’s pie.
