Is standup comedy a popular entertainment source in Istanbul? If so where are the best comedy clubs?

As far as I know, standup is NOT a big deal in Istanbul. I've seen two clubs- one is, I believe, in Gulhane near the metro, and the other is across from Taksim square where the big hotels are. Neither is really a good indicator of quality, as they are both catering to wealthy and stuffy tourists.
