Charlotte-based Hendrick Construction today said it has won the contract to build The Comedy Zone at the NC Music Factory.
Hendrick declined to disclose the contract value.
The Comedy Zone is the largest comedy club network in the U.S. and owns more than 60 comedy clubs across the country. It is based in Charlotte, but there hasn’t been a Charlotte location since 2007.
The club will be 7,100 square feet and beneath The Saloon at the Music Factory. It will feature stadium seating for 400.
Brian Heffron, president of Heffron Talent International, is the owner of The Comedy Zone
“The Comedy Zone will put Charlotte on the map overnight as a top-five city in the U.S. for comedy,” Heffron said. “Everyone at the top of the stand-up game right now will perform.”
Construction is expected to be completed in late June.
