I really enjoyed the improv. The seats are comfy and spacious. Great comedians that come there. I had been to the one downtown years ago and this is better and easier to get to. Plenty of parking.

This is a great venue with worthwhile talent. We have seen Jamie Kennedy, Louie Anderson and others here. They also have some local acts do warm up. You don't have to pay for parking. Arrive early for best seats.

Nothing bad to say about this place! - try it once and you'll be back again. I've been a few times and enjoyed each comic that came. I'll be back again for sure to support this establishment.

Since this is in the Woodfield Mall, I was surprised when we entered inside. It didn’t feel like we were inside a mall. After walking down the stairs you enter the club that has a nice nightclub feel to it. The tables have candles on them, and are on different levels, to allow a good view of the stage. Go... More

My husband and I have been here twice, once to see Jim Breuer and the 2nd time to see Bill Bellamy. The atmosphere is great, very clean, nice waitresses who are very attentive. Both visits we were lucky enough to be placed in the front rows. We didn't try the food either time but the drink are delish. A tad... More

Never been to a comedy club like this, very different. Good atmosphere and great material presented.

Very nice and comfortable setting with top performers. The food is always very good and reasonably priced. One concern is that often a comedian is well liked on TV with a clean sense of humor and when booked at a comedy club they can get rather dirty with the jokes. The management at Improv has welcomed calling and asking if... More

First time experience with the Schaumburg, IL Improv and was very impressed. What they advertise is what you get and more! We were quickly seated and acknowledged by our fantastic waiter! The food was excellent and the drinks perfect. Food and drink are pricey but the inexpensive ticket cost more than makes up for it. My total cost for tickets,... More

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
