I went for "Good Looks" show. I had a great time. All comedians are pretty funny. Last act was by Sarah Silverman. If you're on budget holiday and looking to explore LA comedy scene. Do not miss it.

I like the idea that the place is free (with a donation basket at the end to a different charity each night). That’s very cool. Depending on the night, you can see some great and fun performances. How funny it is really depends on who...More

We loved visiting this Improv Theater! We went to a show named "S----y Jobs" where the sketch group took a suggestion from the audience about their worst jobs and performed from there. Loved how cheap each ticket was and enjoyed the comedy. Bought our tickets...More

This particular show was based on a secret shared by an audience member. The skits that came out of the audience member's anecdote were hilarious! I like the small size of the venue, but would recommend arriving very early if you have a larger group...More

It depends on the show. Some of the UCB shows like Asssscat, sell out weeks in advance but most you can buy before the show. That said, personally, I would recommend ordering them online before the actual date of the show.
