From our weekly open mic to local showcases to regional headliners to national touring acts, the Lucky Cat is Cedar Rapids’ home for comedy.
We’re located in the heart of the up-and-coming Kingston Village neighborhood, where we’ve been since 2018 as Thew Brewing. We started hosting comedy shows in our taproom early on. Our comedy presence has continued to grow and in this different post-pandemic world, we realized our efforts could be better spent on our passion for rebuilding the comedy scene in Cedar Rapids. We ended our brewing operations in April 2022 and shifted the focus of our business to comedy and events.
In addition to our comedy programming, we are home to many other events including Lexi Belle’s Drag Bingo, Sunday Morning Yoga (10:30 am every Sunday), Pub Trivia (5:30 pm every Sunday), monthly Cork N Canvas events, pottery classes with the Ceramics Center of Iowa, and more!
Our commitment to community lives on. We operated Thew Brewing with a focus on giving back and raised thousands of dollars for community causes like the Tanager Place LGBTQ+ Youth center, Willis Dady Homeless Services, Together We Achieve, Cedar Rapids Pride, derecho relief efforts, and many others. We are carrying this spirit into the Lucky Cat and look forward to serving the Cedar Rapids community for years to come.
