A group of 8 of us reserved ahead for a Friday night and the place filled up. The emcee was hysterical and kept the show moving along as we heard from 8 different comedians. Although they could have been more diverse (only one woman and...More

Really good comedy for an extremely affordable price in a unique setting. On the third floor of a Chinese Restaurant. It is a very intimate setting with great comedians. Had a blast!

What a great surprise! We were looking for something to do on a Friday night and happened upon this place. Eight comics lined up, 6 were great acts. Only $12 pp and no pressure to buy food or drinks, unlike other places I've been. Really...More

Fairly small venue above a chinese restaurant. However, $10 for two hours of comedy is great. The Thursday night we were there had about 10 different comics performing for about 10 to 15 minutes each. A couple were very good. One was awful. The rest...More

A group of colleagues came with me to The Comedy Studio for their Wednesday "fresh faces" night. Absolutely hilarious, and a fabulous time was had by all.
