Caroline Hirsch opened up a cabaret in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York in 1981. The comedians she booked were her most popular draw, so she started booking them exclusively.

After moving to a couple of locations, Carolines on Broadway (sic) opened at this location in 1992. Billing itself as "America's Premiere Comedy Nightclub," the list of comedians who have played Carolines is pretty extensive.

Notably, Bill Hicks gave his last performance at Carolines in January 1994 (before he died of cancer).

Louis C.K. often features Carolines as a filming location for the TV series, Louie.

I don't know why they don't put the apostrophe in the name. That's just how they spell it.
