Went to the ladies comedy show and didn't think it was to funny. It was hard to follow and They didn't start on time. Maybe the house show would have been better.

My husband and I were in vacation from Pittsburgh and decided to try out the show...fantastically interactive and hilarious! Love that the material is clean (which is refreshing) yet still so fun and funny! Highly recommended!

I saw the show in New York with my extended family of 7. We wanted to try San Diego since it was much closer to home. We brought 3 additional friends for a total of 9. We knew it was 1st come seating so we got there right at 7:00. When we got inside, our seats were reserved! Special treatment... More

This was a perfect Saturday night outing for me and my husband. The show was absolutely hilarious. The framework of the show I saw sort of mimicked "Whose Line is it Anyway?" but in this show it was a competition between to improv teams. They do a lot with audience suggestions and participation. I didn't stop laughing for the two... More

And if I had my way, and if we didn't live 45 minutes away in North County, I would go every weekend. This is pretty much my favorite thing to do on a weekend night. The show is always funny and entertaining, and sometimes it rises to the heights of downright side-splittingly hilarious. Throw in a nice dinner beforehand in... More

So funny! Audience participation...you get to call out suggestions or volunteer to go on stage. Great improve! Very funny! And CLEAN...you don't have to worry about your kids being there.

I don't know how they do some of the things they do! Improv is on point, funny, definitely a great thing to do in San Diego. If I ever return, I'll definitely be paying the NCT another visit!

We visit San Diego yearly from New York State and even though there are many things we love about the city and see time and time again...we NEVER miss NCT. It is always different and always hits it out of the park. No fear of being "dragged" up to the stage...volunteer, or not. And even though our kids are older... More

Really awesome show. I've been about a half dozen times now and every time it has been so funny my cheeks hurt and my abs get a complete workout. I've never been disappointed. We will definitely be back....several times. LOVE this show. Only thing that sucks is the parking - get there EARLY!!!
