UPDATED! Is Connxtions Comedy Club Closed?
UPDATE 11:44pm 4/28/14: ConnxtionsComedyClub.com now displays the following message: "Connxtions Comedy Club - Lansing is temporarily closed for building repairs and renovations. Stay tuned and thank you for your support!"
The rumor mill is a-churnin'! The word is that Connxtions Comedy Club has closed its doors, but is it "for good?"
In December, Connxtions' sister-club in Toledo closed and a source tells us that the club's owner has long been thinking about closing or moving the Lansing club as well, but in December, the Toledo Blade reported the Toledo club's voice mail indicated that the club may later re-open at a new location. That has not yet happened.
There is no indication via the club's website or Facebook page that it has closed, and in fact, ConnxtionsComedyClub.com indicates that there are future shows scheduled. But the word is spreading fast, with numerous social media mentions.

So saddened to hear that my favorite location closed today. How I loved hanging out at Connxtions Comedy Club in Lansing. I am relieved to hear that the business was not sold and will be back hopefully this fall. #connxtionsrocks
