I was thinking it would be cheesy and corny.. Not at all they had a great line up. Drinks were weak but hey some bartenders cant help cheap bosses. All and all entertainment was great service was okay, drinks sucked.

The comedians were funny. Interestingly, that's not always the case for a comedy club. I purchased my tickets on groupon so I got my money's worth. I had a good time. I have been there before and I will go back.
