You know the cliche about starving actors working as waiters? Well in this case the actors ARE the waiters! It's a hugely fun evening (especially for locals since the humor is often area-based) with surprisingly good food and a ton of laughs. While the humor...More

I went to Laffing Matterz a number of years ago and it was a fantastic evening out. The acts were brilliant, but it helps if you have lived in Miami / Fort Lauderdale as a lot of the jokes are very localized. The food and...More

Great satirical entertainment by a fun crew that doubles as wait staff...great night out and although you don't go there for the food it is above average for this venue. Don't miss it.

Went there when it was in its original location. Food was fair and pricey but worth because it is a very enjoyable evening. Definitely out of the norm and a nice change of pace.

Enjoyable dinner and show -- most of the humor is good (maybe a little too much local humor). Nice seting. Not really suitable for little kids. Food was better than expected.

We went here last night not knowing what to expect. The meal is served beforehand. I had osso bucco which was delicious and my spouse had the filet mignon. The show started out slow, but picked up as the play went on. I especially enjoyed...More

Visiting friends in Ft Lauderdale who always line up fun activities for our stay. This included Laffing Matterz. First the food was top notch and absolutely nothing to complain about (and we are very critical of restaurants). What was fun is the interaction with the...More

We paid a premium to see this on New Years Eve and would have been better off watching sitcom reruns at home. The first skit was mildly amusing but there were not enough laughs to sustain a high school amateur hour. The cast has great...More
