I really like the Improv and have been there a half-dozen times by now. Located in the Woodfield Mall, it's very accessible. Parking is plentiful with the addition of the new enclosed parking lot. But if you want to park right near the Improv, arrive early, as there are restaurants on this side, and parking is usually pretty full. The... More

After a long not-very-funny week, a good laugh is welcome. We go to the Improv often because they have great shows and really know how to take care of customers. It seems that businesses spend so much time on getting new customers that the ignore the ones they already have and I'm happy to say that is not the case... More

The hubby and I went on a whim on a Saturday night. I read a lot of the reviews here first and decided to go with the dinner package and I am so glad we did. First of all there was not a long line MAYBE 10 minutes but not bad at all. If you choose the dinner option you... More

I had never been here before, but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked through the unassuming storefront under the marquee and down the stairs into the cave-like basement. The bar was cheerful and tastefully lit. The walls are covered with photos of comedians who had previously played the club. The club itself is pleasant, although dimly lit, which is... More

So much fun, I wasn't sure what to expect but we couldn't stop laughing at the improv actors and actresses. There was audience participation, which was awesome.

I saw Gary Owen here. We had a great time. The venue was spacious and you didn't feel all cramped like in other comedy clubs. The service was also very good. Every seat in the venue was good where you could see the stage very well. It was also very clean there. It's a 2 drink (item) minimum which is... More

Ok so yes as everyone states there is a line that you have to wait in to get into the club. Relax people. It doesn't take that long and we visited on a sold out night with Deon Cole. All 3 acts were good some great! It was a fun night for all of us that attended. The prices are... More

I bought tickets to see Rob Schneider 3 months in advance and the seats sucked. He was great but it's a terrible seating chart. We even got here 50 minutes early and waited in line. I looked at the back of a women's head the whole time. Below was my view.
