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

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.
