Seattle’s Parlor Live comedy club, which opened in downtown Seattle  in June, 2014, abruptly closed its doors Sunday night.

The Parlor Live outlet in Bellevue will remain open, said marketing director Boone Helm.

“We will consolidate our programming to Parlor Bellevue which remains our most recognized and thriving flagship location,” said Boone in an email Monday, Oct. 26.

Helm declined to comment on why the club was closing.

Owner Steven Olson, a former dentist from Phoenix,  owns Parlor Live, which began booking comedy in Bellevue in 2008. Both clubs booked A list comedians. Parlor Live Bellevue will continue with shows by Damon Wayans, Steve Rannazzisis and Paul Reiser through the end of the year.

The closure of Parlor Live in Seattle leaves the city with just one comedy club, the Comedy Underground, which has been operating in Pioneer Square since 1981.
