Don’t Tell Comedy is set to host a string of upcoming shows around Boston. The exact address of the events? Unknown. Their lineups? A mystery.

Don’t Tell is a Los Angeles-based organization which hosts “secret comedy shows in secret locations with secret comedians,” according to its website. Instead of taking place at a conventional club, the shows are held in whatever space a host can offer it, from living rooms and backyards to stores and gyms. 

The exact location of each show will be revealed via email to ticketholders at noon on the day of the event. Guests won’t know who is set to perform until the moment each comedian makes their way to the stage. General admission tickets are $20, while tickets that guarantee a seat go for $30.


The next Boston show, taking place in Allston on Saturday, is sold out. However, there are still tickets for shows in the South End on Jan. 18, Newbury Street on Feb. 1, the Financial District on Feb. 8, Worcester on Feb.9, Back Bay on Feb. 23, and Malden on March 9.

Don’t Tell Comedy; various dates; various locations; $20-$30; 18+.
