I went to a show on August 23rd 2014 and it was really nice. The staff was really great an really friendly. There is a 2 item minimum per person and the price is kind of high but I don't go out like this very often so it's okay for me. The fries and onion rings are absolutely wonderful, they... More

From the time we arrived until we left we were greeted with friendly and efficient staff. We saw Mo'nique who was beyond hilarious. The food was good although they over cooked my prime rib. We will be returning with friends soon.

Manager totally profiled my cousin and I, made a huge commotion after we had been admitted ( with tickets) and ushered to our seats. San jose is becoming known for discriminating. So sad

I would recommend sitting in the balcony if there are only 2 in your party. This is because you might be seated at a crowded table downstairs & you will have to turn your chair around to see which is very uncomfortable. If you sit in the balcony, you still can see the comedians & you have more privacy. The... More

Been here for several shows (Tommy Davidson, Margaret Cho, etc.) and have had a pretty good time. The food quality is terrible, but the drinks are okay. Most nights (all nights?) there's a two-item minimum, so even if you don't drink you can grub and still meet it. Wish they got some bigger names to do shows here, but that... More

We went to San Jose Improv to see Fluffy (Gabriel Iglesias). The show was very funny - two other comedians performed before Gabriel. There is a nice comedy club menu. I had a good blue cheese burger; my husband had a good steak sandwich. Wide Variety of drinks - we had 2 anchor steam beers. If you go for a... More

It was really fun. A great night out! I enjoyed the atmosphere and the fact that it was not very expensive. I went there with my brother who lives in the area. We both enjoyed the night out and we did not have to travel very far to have a good time. I would recommend it.

My husband took me for my birthday and we really enjoyed ourselves. We went to the early show (let us in at 5:30p) because they serve an expanded menu beyond burgers and appetizers they normally serve at the late show. It's an old vintage theatre that my husband used to watch movies when he was a kid. Very nice layout... More

Went to the show tonight with a few other friends. The food and service is very good, except the food comes in very small portions. We had the spicy chicken wings and there were less than nine or ten wings on the whole plate! The server was good and the drinks are good. Good calamari. There can be a few... More
