Very entertaining

I attended last Saturday night with my husband and daughter. We went for the 7:30 Improv Slam, and were allowed to attend the 9:00 regular show (also improv) at no extra charge.

We attended Naughty or Nice on Saturday, Dec 12 at 8:30 PM. We were a party of 8 men, celebrating one of us turning 50. The show was pathetic.

Not like any club I've ever been too. Seating sucks.....rows of seats. We were lucky enough to get the last row. Couldn't see very well unless you turned your neck in a crazy angle to watch tv on the wall. Bathroom right at stage so when people went it disrupted the so called entertainer! Maybe if it cost $5.00 a... More

Really enjoyed being at DSI for several shows. The Improv Slam show was family-friendly and filled with laughter! The audience participation drives this creative team of comics to play at the top of their game! Had fun too enjoying great beverages from the bar during the evening programs... An awesome group of talented, witty...did I say funny? ... Young people!!... More

Great comedy theater with lots of different shows. Tickets are well priced. There is a snack bar that sells beer as well. There are family friendly and adult only shows. It's a great time for locals and tourists!

Adolescents and the young at heart will enjoy the family friendly improv on weekends. The cast manages to keep it "clean" and fresh.
