This is my second visit to the improv, and it’s been nothing but laughs. A gem in the desert that brings in some great comedic talent. Great food and served quickly by friendly staff. Look forward to my next visit.

Okay, Hint #1. If you sign up for the VIP Club, they will call you every 30 days or so and offer you free tickets. There of course is the ticket service charge $3.10 that for some reason they cannot waive but they tell you...More

We had an excellent dinner and saw an awesome comedy show at the Improv. The show was very affordable and dinner was reasonably priced! We would do this again in a heartbeat!!

We visited this location when I heard that Craig Gass was performing. This is a great person venue with no bad seats in the house. Definitely worth the price of admission.

I've been coming here for a while. They really do treat their customers well. Standing in line and it was hot out... They gave us all free water and otter pops. They bring top headliners, have great drink deals and if you fill out the...More
