Giggles Comedy Club at Prince Pizzeria, Saugus

Standout qualities: Housed inside Prince Pizzeria is this North Shore mecca for comedy, where you can see Boston veterans like Lenny Clarke and Christine Hurley in a venue small enough that you will be afraid to get out of your seat mid-act for fear of drawing their comedic attention.

What’s unique: Like the bright orange dinosaur or Hilltop cactus, the leaning tower of pizza is a Route 1 icon. 

Insider tip: Looking for someplace to host your Pan Mass Challenge fundraiser? Book comedy night at Giggles for up to 150 people.

Fun fact: When Prince Pizzeria, which houses Giggles, went into business in 1961, a large pizza cost $1. Today, Prince Pizzeria is considered the largest family-owned pizzeria in the U.S. In the works: Opened in 1978, Giggles celebrates its 40th anniversary next year.
