Always good talent and pleasant crowd for Laugh Riot. Food and beverage from the venue is tasty and well-priced, and the wait staff is friendly. Best of all, it's a half a block walk from home for us!

The MC and headliners are always pretty entertaining. It's in the basement/convention space of the Hyatt and usually gathers a good crowd. If you're looking to do something different, this is the a great option

The basement of a brand hotel in a downtown commerical area a couple miles south of the NIH doesn't seem like the right place for a comedy club.. and that's just the start of what's offbeat and amusing about Laugh Riot! The production is in...More
