Great inexpensive evening to see amateur comedians. Come early to avoid the crowd. Seating is first come first serve. The food is good and the service is average.

Get your Goldstar going and get in here for a lot less! Has several different showtimes, the line moves quickly and the staff are very quick to remove anyone causing a disturbance

We saw Dan Cummins and OMG he was so funny. First time my husband had been to a comedy club and now he can't get enough. We were lucky enough to right down front. Seeing the facial of these guys is half the show.

Improv Brea - I have not been to that many comedy clubs or concerts at dinner/club type places, but of those that I have been to, Improv Brea does it best. Easy check in out front; prompt seating to a good table; prompt service for drink orders. Drinks were tasty and not stingy on the liquor. Service continued to be... More

Admittedly I have enjoyed myself at this location. However I have also been to both the free nights where the newer comedians were not interesting at all, and at least twice paid $50+ per person to hear so called "prime" comedians who were either excessively intoxicated and/or impaired from some other drug. Improv's response after the second experience was that... More

There is a service upcharge when you buy the tickets in advance online. There is also a 2 drink minimum (soft drinks $6 and Bud light $7), with fried foods available if you get there early. Seating is tight, but there are plenty of servers and the place is professionally run. parking can be difficult on the weekends.

Two drink minimum ensures you'll have fun. Great comics and food isn't bad either. Top comics from around the world

Hey, you don't go to a comedy club for fine dining, but it would be really nice to have seats that face the stage. In some cases they do but due to the club layout even if they do you may spend the whole show staring at the back of someone's head. Last show I saw at the Brea Improv... More

It's too bad they require a 2 drink minimum but serve drinks using very cheap alcohol. Most mixed drinks are awful! Highly overpriced. Maybe stick with bottled drinks. Eating before the show is imperative! Many restaurants within walking distance. Venue and comedians are usually very enjoyable.
