Went last night and had a really enjoyable experience. Great intimate atmosphere, the crowd participates, my wife was brought onstage. I won 2 free passes for next we go. Bar has quite unique drinks that were delicious. All in all, great way to spend an early Saturday night before hitting the other bars of Ferndale..

I had the luck of catching the Thursday night line up of three improv troupes while in the Detroit area on business. Being a perpetual student in improv, I know talented improvers when I see them; and I saw a lot on my visit. I stayed for both the 9 and 10 pm shows. The 9pm featured Soft Friction &... More

This is a terrific venue with extremely talented entertainers. It is hard to believe that it as improv given that the stories they were telling were hilarious. We sat through nearly 2 1/2 hours of comedy and it seemed like no more than 10 minutes. We drove over from Ann Arbor and it was well worth the trip. One act... More

This was a small venue located of the main strip of Woodward Avenue. When you arrive you can sign up to participate in the show. I could tell there are a lot of regulars who attend the show; a large portion of the audience knew each other and were familiar with the improve games. A friend from our party was... More

This place is great. It is perfect for a date or a night out with your friends. They usually have a pretty good drink special going on too, which is always an added bonus. It's also great because they offer a lot of variety: improv, sketch shows, etc.

I love this place! I have been here quite a few times now, and every time I have laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. There are many different groups that perform, and they always keep it entertaining! There are different prices on different days, and some days if you get tickets to the first show you can... More

We saw the all star comedy improv show. Never heard of this place prior to a Groupon. The show was very funny. I'm not normally a big fan of comedy shows because they tend to pick on the audience and it gets old. This show involved the audience, but didn't single anybody out except one person who went on stage... More

Not the best presentation, the quality of the acts is not that great. The bar is ridiculously expensive and the 'theatre' is very hot and fairly uncomfortable. Though, I guess it would be ok for an awkward first date or something

Embarrassingly bad. They didn't do any improv, just stupid skits. A couple left in the middle, we stayed hoping it would get better; it didn't.

Steven, I'm sorry to read that you were unhappy with the sketch show you saw. I get the impression you were looking to see an improv show. If you're willing to give us a second chance, I'd gladly provide you with a pair of tickets to see The Go Comedy! All-Star Showdown (Fridays at 10pm or Saturdays at 8pm or... More
