Reopening the Palm Beach Improv is comedian and South Florida native Flip Schultz. He has the pressure of starting comedy back up in South Florida. "I wouldn't call it daunting. I'm actually thrilled and honored that they asked me to be at the [reopening] of the club," said Schultz.

"We are super excited to open again. The world needs some laughter!" said Rene Harte, managing partner at the Palm Beach Improv.

Friday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.

Tickets start at $20 with a two-drink minimum.

The GreenMarket features more than 90 vendors offering a variety of products, including fresh produce, exotic plants and flowers, herbs and spices, baked goods, gourmet and specialty foods, coffee and teas, and much more.

There are other changes due to the coronavirus pandemic including the suspension of activities for kids. Parking is free in the city garages for the first two hours.
