Just a stone’s throw from the Poughkeepsie train station, Laugh it Up! provides quality entertainment by talent from NYC to Albany. Guests can enjoy a fine meal at Mahoney’s before the show or grab an appetizer and beverages during the show.
Laugh it Up! Is the brainchild of Dan McRitchie, a local talent with 20+ years of comedy experience under his belt. After winning the “Funniest Person in the Hudson Valley” in 1996, McRitchie took to the road to hone his skills. After working with many legends of comedy, he returned to the Hudson Valley and formed “Smells Like Comedy”, a traveling comedy show that entertained in many rooms in the Dutchess, Orange, Ulster area. It was through these shows that he realized that Poughkeepsie was in need of a centrally located comedy venue, and Laugh it Up! @ Mahoney’s was born.
