Find out about the history of The Riff

The Riff is Asia’s premier standup comedy club. It is Hong Kong’s only full-time comedy venue, and the first on the continent from Live Nation, the entertainment house behind the legendary Punchline Comedy Clubs in the US, home to giants including Dave Chappelle.

Live Nation brought standup greats to the city like Jim Jefferies, Jim Gaffigan and Russell Peters, and The Riff is ground zero for relentless world-class comedy.

The show room was built by comedians, for comedians, and is the ultimate intimate setting for the jokes to roll hard and the laughs to roll harder.

With food service from California Tower’s best restaurants, a spacious speakeasy bar serving the classics, and a terrace that will knock your socks off, we have your whole night sorted.

The Riff is comedy in Hong Kong.
