The comedians were not funny. Drinks were expensive and not good! To much in Milwaukee to waste your time at this club!

We were entertained by three comedians, and they kept getting funnier and funnier. The main headliner was from Alabama, and goll durn it, if we weren't laughing our butts off. We went on a Thursday night and actually paid NO cover! Two drink minimum, and the drinks were delicious and well made. We requested popcorn, and that was on the... More

The show was amazing, fun great time. It was clean with a great atmosphere. 10 cover plus a two drink minimum but that was easy because the drinks were great. They do not have any food but they have popcorn.

The host, a sci-fi writer, was as funny as possible for the time allotted to him. The local comic was pretty funny, too. I thought the main comic, a gentleman from Alabama by way of New York City and Los Angeles was a little uneven. He had to much of a Don Rickles' act for my taste. Strictly adult entertainment....

My girlfriend and I stopped in here on a Friday night (only 10 dollars a ticket!) for a 7:30 showing. Been to comedy clubs in the past and this one was set up just like the rest of them. Don't pay the extra five dollars for the "better" seats. No reason as it is a very small venue. There is... More

Loved the atmosphere and the staff. We reserved our tix beforehand to get a discount. We were seated right up front (even while having only a minute to spare before showtime). The comics were pretty funny...and the specialty drinks were great. It was the perfect cherry topper of our trip.

This is a pretty cool venue. They can cram a lot of people in there. We bought tickets in advance and were seated right in front of the stage. I mean like directly against it, a few feet from the performers. This may have been a bit too close, but no big deal. So one of the waitresses serving the... More

There was a mix up at the door. The door man thought I did not have tickets purchased whatsoever. Please buy and arrive at the venue early for the comedian of your choice so that this doesn't happen to you. The club owner/manager saved the day for me otherwise I would have not been allowed in despite my ticket in... More

We have been to the comedy cafe numerous times.....normally all the acts are hilarious! During our last visit, this was not the case....a bunch of duds. Great service.
