My husband and I have been to the improv club many times but have never laughed harder when we've seen Rocky LaPorte and John Heffron have been on stage. We saw Rocky last year and saw John just last night. John Heffron had clean material, just a few swear words, and just had a great show all together. Thank you... More

Went for Valentin's Day with my fiancee. The stand up comedian was a big hit, the environment was upbeat and fun, overall loved it. They do make you purchase food and drink though which is in addition to the price of the ticket. There food is okay, nothing special but is expensive. Altogether for the both of us we spent... More

This is the 2nd time we went to this club. Both times had bad experience. We booked tickets for the dinner show and appeared on-time. Was then told we had to make a reservation for dinner (tickets said dinner show, did not say we had to make reservations). We had to wait another hour before we could enter. Line was... More

Not your typical bar food here. Absolutely love the Parmesan Crusted Chicken. It is worth arriving early to enjoy dinner prior to the entertainment starting. Comfortable seating and most of the comedians are very entertaining and well worth the ticket price.

After a hard days work, it was just nice to come the Chicago Improv and relax. Located in Schaumburg, its a great place to go and unwind.

We laughed until it hurt. This was really a great trip. There was a rather long line to stand in for this show but it was a big headliner and turned out to be worth it. We will return.

In the basement of woodfield mall. Many group on specials. Clean. Lots of space but still intimate. Can get drinks before show. Have major headliners and local comedians. Food is ok as are drinks. Perfect date place. Good restaurants in mall for before show.

We decided to go to Chicago Improve after our concert was cancelled and this place made us laugh after a tough day! Good length of time so it doesn't take up your whole evening if you'd like to get in a full night of activities! Drinks were not overpriced and wait staff was prompt. Perfect for a night out with...

I recommend to go early for dinner if you go to the 1st show, food is surprisingly good and priced the same as a restaurant. this eliminates the need to go to dinner before or after. Good choice of headliners. view schedule in the website

The comedian, Mike Patel was very funny. We found the 2 item minimum a bit much after paying an admission of $26 each, and to make it worse, the drink prices are exorbitant. If you want even finger type food, get there early for one of the dinner tables, the one we and most others got as well, aren't big... More
