Guest can also take advantage of the Cleveland RTA rail system with the Green and Blue lines dropping guests just a few feet from Collision Bend Brewing Company.  Another seasonal option is the Cleveland Metro Parks Water Taxi which transports guests for free from a large parking area on West Bank to the East bank – be sure to check their seasonal schedule here. Please plan ample time for parking so you arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. The tour cannot wait for guests who arrive late.

All passengers will be notified using the contact information you provided during the booking process.

Can I bring alcoholic beverages on the bus?2023-03-05T16:32:13-05:00

Beer and wine only, please – no liquor allowed. If you bring a cooler, it must fit on your lap or under the seat.

Is the tour appropriate for all ages?2023-03-05T16:34:24-05:00

The jokes heard on the bus are adult in nature and are similar to what you would hear in a comedy club, thus, just like an R-rated movie, no one under 17 is permitted. The only exception is the PG-13 tour which is offered only in Charlotte, NC.

 

Are car seats allowed?2023-03-05T16:33:39-05:00

There are no safety belts on the Funny Bus so for safety reasons, no car seats, small children, or babies are allowed. Refunds will not be issued for tickets purchased for small children or babies.

Is it appropriate to leave a gratuity?2023-03-05T16:33:17-05:00

Gratuities are never expected but always appreciated.  All gratuities are divided equally between the driver and the comedian.  Your comedian will provide an opportunity for gratuities at the end of your tour.  We also accept Venmo.

Are there any incidental charges?2023-03-05T16:33:08-05:00

Incidental charges are extremely rare; however, a charge can be incurred if a guest causes damage to the bus such as through vandalism or the release of bodily fluids (vomit, urine, etc..).  The minimum charge is $100.00.

The Funny Bus Does Private Tours Too!

The best way to bring a group together is through laughter! Our private tours accommodate up to 34 people and are great for company team-building activities or customer appreciation events. Personal celebrations like family reunions, neighborhood gatherings, and birthdays are also a hit on the Funny Bus. Private parties can bring beer & wine, and there is always a beverage and bathroom break at the halfway point. We can customize tour start times and pickup locations (a surcharge may be applied based on distance). If your group isn’t that big, don’t worry; for parties of 20 or more, we offer discounts on our regularly scheduled public tours too.

Meet the Comedians

Julia Mary
Julia Mary
Julia Mary is a relentless tornado of comedic anarchy and a fearless force of nature. When she’s not giving city tours on the Funny Bus in downtown Cleveland, you can find her doing local comedy shows, hanging out at home with her cats, or crying in a public bathroom. Some may describe Julia as “a bit much”, others would say she’s “way too much” – either way she’s guaranteed to make you laugh.
Bryan Sternik

Born and raised in Old Brooklyn, Ohio, Bryan knows this city like the back of his hand! He is a four-year veteran of the Cleveland comedy scene and boasts three awards from the Cleveland Comedy Awards including, “Rookie of the Year”, “Best Room” and “Juggernaut of Comedy.” Bryan is energetic about being himself and has an enticing presence, quick wit and goofy takes on the world around him.
Kristen Hoffman
Kristen Hoffman
Kristen was born and raised in Cleveland but recently returned from a four-year hiatus in New York City. Try as it might, NYC could not kick the Midwest out of this girl. A musical theatre defector, Kristen loves to be the center of attention and fell in love with comedy when she realized she wouldn’t have to share the stage with anyone. She enjoys running, occasionally for exercise, but mostly just away from her problems.
Darjon Bentley

Great idea! Loved hearing all about the city of Cleveland, playing some games and lots of laugh! BYOB was a nice addition!  Trip Advisor

Had an absolute blast. First off it is super convenient getting picked up in the flats at Collision Bend Brewery. The Funny Bus staff was warm and welcoming as we got on the bus. The interior was roomy and comfortable. Our small cooler fit perfectly under the seat and the seats even had a bottle opener attached. The tour was informative and the comedian was hilarious. Kudos to the funny bus as this has been long overdue for Cleveland. Can’t wait to book our next trip.

We had a great time on the funny bus. The comedian and driver were awesome! It’s the perfect balance of local info and comedy so you get to learn about Cleveland and laugh at the same time. I can’t wait to go again!

The comedian was hilarious, and the tour of Cleveland was top notch. Would highly recommend checking it out.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to have a good time in downtown Cleveland.

BYOB bar on wheels? Are You Kidding? Sign Me Up, Please. I laughed so hard I was rolling in my seat. Seriously, My cheeks hurt, and had to gently massage them at the end of the tour. I could tell that our tour guide/comedian, really enjoy & love what he do — and he’s good at it too!  

This tour was fun and interactive – the crowd is invited to dance, cheer along, and answer questions and win prizes! Oh, and did I mention you can bring along your own drinks?

Funny bus was a trip! The bus, staff and tour all clicked. Being able to bring adult beverages was a plus. Would only recommend if you want to laugh and have fun. Going to book the funny bus for our work outing.

Unique, informative tour of Cleveland like we’ve never seen before. We will be back for another comedian.
