Ok Les moved his comedy club downtown from a less than shiny area on the north trail. Come early because parking is an issue downtown - always. The club is nice and the seating can be purchased online in advance. At $15 this is a good deal. There is a 2 drink minimum per person and you can count on... More

This comedy club has been a local favorite for many years. Now the new digs add a bit more ambiance, missing at the previous locations. New menu and drink selections are also a welcomed sight. Les attracts some really funny entertainers for a hilarious night out. McCurdie's continues to be the best laffin' place in town.

New location and it is a big improvement. there is a two item minimum at the tables but the selection is decent and the food is OK. Of course, this is all about the entertainment which can be great fun. Good place to go for birthdays, etc.

This is a fun evening's entertainment most of the time. Be sure to read about what comic is appearing -- some of them are a little too "blue" for my taste. But if you are a big fan of the word "F@#&", then you might enjoy them.

This was our first visit to McCurdy's and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The one disappointing thing was the "cover charge". We should have checked ahead of time but we were not aware that you had to purchase a minimum number of drinks/food items per person.

I have been to McCurdy's several times and have never had a bad experience. The comedians are funny (some funnier than others) but the place is small and intimate. There is not a bad seat in the house. They have a two drink or food order minimum per person. But a soda and some salsa and chips will meet that... More

New location is a big hit. The Green Room allows for some pre and post show drinks and food. The theater room was designed for comedy. We have seen national acts and small time acts. But, every time we leave smiling. You will definitely have a great time.
