Comedy club coming to the Seaport District

Boston’s Seaport District is about to get a sense of humor. The up-and-coming neighborhood boasts an array of corporate offices, restaurants, and residential options. But when John Tobin, booker of Nick’s Comedy Stop, and Chet Harding and Norm Laviolette, cofounders of Improv Asylum, took a walk around the area a year ago, they found one amenity lacking: entertainment. They intend to rectify that by the spring, when they expect to open a stand-alone comedy club, Laugh Boston, at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.

In the cavernous raw space that is to become the club, the floors and steel beams are unfinished. Windows look out on the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center’s LED sign and on a landscape dotted with cranes and construction sites. Laugh Boston is part of the explosive growth in the district.
