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

Wasn't quite sure where we were going when we went in, but after getting to the basement, the layout was fantastic. The room was laid out perfectly and was very comfortable. The comedians were very, very funny. However, it'd be nice to not have to hear cuss words every fourth word. You can be funny without the expletatives.

We had a great night but seeing as it was so cold outside we were slightly annoyed that although we purchased our tickets the day before and were told that doors open at 8.15pm were made to wait outside for an hour in the cold as the bar was too busy from the earlier show. Its a massive venue so... More

We have visited the Chicago Improv a few times now, whenever we stay overnight in Schuamburg, Ill. They always have great headliners who keep us rolling in their seats. It is a bit more pricey than say, the MIlwaukee WI comedy clubs, but I think it is the area too. They offer both food and drinks.They also do not offer... More

Okay, I went here on Saturday night to see Jim Breuer do stand up. First of all, he is one of the funniest people in the world. Period. NOW....that is why I rated the Improv a 4 and not a 3. The Improv is located in the Woodfield Mall, parking is a challenge, but it is free and if you... More
