We enjoyed the majority of the comics. It is a bit pricey plus a 2 drink minimum per person, but we had a good time.

The main comedian when we saw the show 7/30/17 was Geno Bisconte. He was terrible--angry and hateful--tried to make jokes about Jewish people and the holocaust and when the audience didn't laugh, got angry at the audience. He also used the N word and a...More

I guess for the price, this was good for a night out at the last minute. The talent was a mix of average to great. The beer was cold but a little pricey. The only complaint is the way they seat you. You get there...More
