McCurdy’s Comedy Club

McCurdy’s Comedy Club has been bringing the laughs to Sarasota, Florida for almost 30 years. It has made many moves over the years, starting at a room at the Holiday Inn, to a theatre on Tamiami Trail, to a huge space in the heart of downtown where comedians and entertainers are playing to sold out crowds. With that move came a new website to showcase the big names that the theatre brings into town. I wanted to create something that was easy to use, bold, dark, and as in-your-face as the owner himself, Les McCurdy.

The primary goal of the McCurdy’s Comedy Club site is to sell tickets. We made sure that was front and center on every page, above the footer, along with the sidebar of all of the show pages. The call-to-action color of bright yellow helps make this pop against the black background, which is a nod to the bright lights of the comedy stage.
