This is purely a review of the club, not the comic: It's a comedy club; small stage, brick wall, a spotlight and lots of people packed in tight. The place is small and you will see the comic from any seat. VIP is inches from...More

We've gone to the Stress Factory several times over the years - and have always had a great time. They get some great acts - but do your research to ensure the headliner is somebody you will like. A few notes: They do pack you...More

I’m sorry i don’t know for sure but I have never seen them collect money and I sat near the door last time . When you come in they ask your name that you reserved under or to see the confirmation on your phone .

Tickets vary based on the line up. If a celebrity is the headliner, tickets are usually $20-25. You have a food and drink minimum also.
