Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great lineup & we had a great laugh. This establishment has commercialised every aspect they possibly can which makes good business sense. Food was average although the tiramisu was fabulous! Lots of announcements but friendly service. All in all a good fun night.

Our first visit and it didn’t disappoint. From booking to seating to the acts, we had a great experience. We booked the show only but did order nachos, which were a 3/5. Acts were very funny, with very little profanity as mentioned in a previous review, so I guess it’s hit and miss

Fantastic adult only venue with some hilarious comedians. The venue is comfortable with great cocktails and drinks and yummy food. We often go along for a fun night when visiting Melbourne. It's a great time, definitely worth going. 5 star

Modern day stand up comedians feel it necessary to use continuous foul language in attempts to be funny.
If you wish to hear a barrage of F & C words then you’ll probably enjoy it. If it was not for the humorous performance of Marty Fields the night would have been terrible. He was by far the highlight act of the night, although he didn’t have much to beat. The food was satisfactory but $29 for a beef burger is right up there in cost as is the alcoholic drinks.
It’s a shame modern day want to be comedians can’t hold a candle to those great comedians who never needed to resort to disgusting foul language to make people laugh. The night just reinforced why I stopped going to the comedy festival many years. Never again!

Live entertainment as it always has been. Bar staff with attitude “Does anyone know what they want?” were more entertaining than some of the comics.

Your experience depends on the line up. Ours was mediocre.

Went to this place 2 weeks ago. Packed house. Made a phone booking a couple of days beforehand. Turned up & found my name wasn't on the list. So gave them my name and was accomodated with great seats. Before the show started I purchased a cocktail at the bar. During the show I sipped around 2/3 of it and when there was a break, I noticed a crack in the glass. So decided to bring it back to the bar. The barman rudely said " oh you drank 2/3 and then decided to return it" Then took the glass emptied the contents and threw the glass in the bin. I replied, " sorry its dark in here & didnt see it until now" . He with his back turned got me another glass and refilled it with the cocktail and said something underneath his breath. I asked " what did you say? " he turned and said 'everyone knows what you're like ..........." (then stated my name). I then said "what? " he repeated it all and again stated my name. I then asked him what his name was, for which he didnt want to answer as he took his time, then said "you can call me Dave". I said : "how do you know my name? " he blatantly ignored me after that. I was left feeling very targeted as a woman in a largely 'male dominated establishment without any management to call upon and talk to about the incident. Beware females & be careful. Its an awful environment full of sexist mysogynists who rely on ridiculing women for a laugh. Its just NO FUN nor is it funny!!

I love this place, if you live nearby it's definitely worth buying a membership so you can go as many times as you'd like in a year. Dont let the outdated logo/branding put you off, it's a good show with nice pub style food.

Low level comics and the drinks were definitely watered down...my black russian was more like a grey austrian. Headliner did maybe 15 mins. Marty Fields ripped off Dave Attell bit about one legged homeless guy giving directions.

If you want to see a mass sausage fest line up, this is the place for you. Outdated humour and bad management

It was funny and entertaining. However I was hoping to hear more Asian Jokes.

The location was easy to find
