We happened on this place unintentionally. We had spent a rainy day at the Newport on the Levee. That evening instead of leaving we decided to take in the comedy show. It was a place with tables crammed packed into it. The drinks were high priced and not very good. The service was over whelmed and not attentive. The show... More

I had made our reservation for a party of 4 and everything processed. However, I wasn't able to print the tickets. I called a couple of times to check on them and get more info and the office was never open. I left messages and I never received a call back. I had to call about 10 different times on... More

We saw adult hypnotist (don't remember name), he was hilarious, really enjoyed show. A few of participants were just acting, but to my amazement, several were out of their minds doing crazy things. I am naturally sceptical Great venue and value. They do serve food, not bad, we at before we got there, then just had appetizers. They do often... More

Last night was my first visit to Funny Bone at Newport on the Levee. It is a relatively small venue with table service for food and drinks. Keep in mind that the ticket price for the comedian(s) does NOT include all fees. Each patron much purchase at least 2 items from the menu be it food or drinks. My husband... More

We had never been to a comedy club. I booked tickets on line. Every thing worked fine. The place was crowded and service was swamped. Prices were not too bad. Rodman was great on TV and better in person. He added to the bits that he did on TV, which was the right move. We wanted our friends to hear... More

I have been to many shows here, some I have paid for and some I received free tickets. Most Comedians I have seen there are pretty good. It is a comedy club so you never know what they will joke about. I don't sit directly in the front. Usually the comic will have something to say to at least one... More

i liked the table service, food, drinks and the intimancy of the seating. A small venue with everyone there to have a good time with others. I was not amused by the constant profanity and in-my-face sexual vulgarity. I'll choose future shows more wisely after comprehensive research.

As it was my first trip to a comedy club, I was excited for the experience. But, it was a bad experience from the start. You are greeted by perhaps the most unfriendly and rude staff I have ever encountered in a restaurant/club environment. Upon entering the club, you could immediately feel the stifling air and heat that lingered throughout... More

We were able to gets tickets the day of the event. The box office window is right out side and easy to find and purchase. The facility was clean and the seats all had a good view of the stage. We did not get any food. I was disappointed in the drink menu. Not my type of drinks. I did... More

We really enjoy going to the Funny Bone. It is four blocks from our house and the free tickets make it a no-brainer. If friends are in town, we do tend to go there. We have never been disappointed by the comic in any of our experiences and I know we have been there at least 15 times. I know... More
