We loved the Improv. Drinks were what you’d expect watered down tasteless. We did not order food. $60 per person includes 2 terrible well drinks or 1 custom drink like a Martini. The show was Margaret Cho. Her intro Rocco was funnier and more entertaining....More

Went to see Eric Griffin. He was funnnnnnny... The food was awesome. The service was decent. Our male waiter wasn't friendly but the ladies were. The club should open earlier because it's was to dark to order food and drink during show.

Me and my wife shared a booth upfront with a lovely couple and had the best time. I laughed so hard my ribs hurt. Food and drink were good too.

Great venue. All three comics were excellent. Headliner did almost an hour. Only issue we had was the rain while waiting outside. A really good value at $20 per ticket. Really fun.

Came here this evening to see Pablo Francisco and he was awful but to hear him speak of people with disabilities in his act was absolutely inappropriate. He should be ashamed of himself. Appalling.

Large comedy venue. Get there early for betters seats. We were in the front row of the back section, which was fine as we could still see well. Spade was hysterical!

My wife and I finally saw a show here for our anniversary and we really impressed not only with the caliber of the performers (two warm-ups and a main act) but that fact they avoided dirty humor. There was actually some interplay between the main...More
