The Laughing Derby up for sale

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville staple is up for sale.

According to a Facebook post by Steve Hofstetter, owner of The Laughing Derby, the comedy club is on the market.

The club, formerly known as Comedy Caravan, is located 1250 Bardstown Road.

"A few years ago, my partners and I cane in and it has been an amazing adventure," Hofstetter wrote in his Facebook post. "Caravan was the first club I ever headlined, and that club will always have a special place in my heart. Those that know me know that I have been slowly getting out of the club business to concentrate on television and film, and while I will miss the old girl, it is time to put the club up for sale."

Hofstetter added that he has not been involved in the day-to-day operations of the club for over a year.

"We pulled it out of the red, and the club turned a modest profit in 2014 and 2015," he wrote. "We don't yet know what it will do in 2016 (the winter are always the best months). It could use some renovation (we did what we could on the budget we had) and we hope that someone can take care of it the way it deserves to be taken care of."

Anyone interested in purchasing the club is asked to email Chris Bowers at Bowers@laughingderby.com.
