First time here, came for the Comedy, not the environment or food. It's like most comedy clubs, looks like a basement, smells like spilled beer and nachos. Eat before/after, get the minimum off the menu and watch the show! Only recommend if you know the Comedian

Don't go to open mic night. It's a gamble. One or two comedians were ok, but the rest were pretty bad. It was a waste of money.

My husband and I went with 8 co-workers. There were 3 comics, the openers and the main act. The first 2 were mildly funny but the main act was so crude I was cringing most of the time. I just do not see the need to constantly use the F bomb to make a joke. The expletives were non-stop. I... More

Paid for tickets and couldn't even watch show because they had signs in front of our seat and would not move them. When asked for refund they walked away saying give them a minute and they never came back so we had to leave without our money or being able to watch a show. Worst place, worst customer service, and... More

This is the second time in a two month we have gone. Both times the comedians were great! Constant laughing! The service needs to really improve. First time took 30 minutes to be waited on. 45 minutes to get the snacks and drinks. Two drink minimum. We didn't order the second drink, the shows don't last that long. Last night... More

I was laughing so hard almost fell off my seat. Had a really good time. Prices were good. We would definitely go again, going to tell my friends and co-workers.

We went to see Mitch Fatel at the Laughing Derby (formerly Comedy Caravan). He was hilarious, laughed the entire time!! The environment was great, server was quick and on top of it. This honestly was the best date night we have had in years

The good: You can see touring comedians at a great price, usually $15 or less and a 2 drink minimum. We have a blast every time we go... Until this Saturday night. The not so good: We went to a show that had a promo for 2 free tickets. We used their website got the confirmation email all was good.... More

Never underestimate how great it feels to laugh! This place was as good, if not better than any comedy place anywhere in the country. Saw amazing comedians (Holly Lynnea, Steve Hofstetter, and the amazing Keith McGill). I will go back again and again....hurray for Louisville's excellent talent!
