I've been to the comedy factory numerous times and each time every comedian has delivered. However, the comedy factory is located inside of a Best Western and the decor is outdated. I'm not sure of the agreement between the hotel and the factory, but some extra love and attention should be given to area the factory is in to make... More

I purchased $25 VIP tickets for myself and my son to see our favorite comedian, Deon Cole. This was our first visit in the new location (O'Donnell Street in Baltimore, MD), and I immediately loved that open and free parking was readily available as opposed to where they were located prior: downtown Baltimore where parking in a garage was over-priced...

I always enjoy coming here and seeing the different comedians. I recently saw Tony Roberts and Meschelle! Both were hilarious. Keep in mind you have 2 drink minimum but you can always buy bottled water.

The Baltimore Comedy Factory. We have had some great date nights here! The emcee, Alabama, is great. Every comedian we've seen has made us crack up. We've seen well known comics like Tim Meadows here, and some we have not heard of, but each one has given us so many laughs. I recommend this place highly. By the way, this... More

I was a little leery of a comedy venue inside a hotel but was pleasantly surprised. The room is big enough to hold a decent crowd but small enough that no seat is a bad seat. There is a 2-drink minimum but that is fairly common & was doable. The wait staff was very friendly & attentive. Food looked good... More

Sorry previous post had me laughing, “Racist against both Black and Whites” Is that even possible? Oh well, I go there frequently and always have a great time, I appreciate the security, because the get rid of people that disrupt the shows quickly, and nothing is worse than trying to watch a show and have to listen to idiots try...

They have a policy where they have a fake cop in a Police uniform tell you you cannot leave if you do not produce a document that says you paid for their two drink minimum. I complied and bought more than the minimum, but their stupid idiot server didn't give me a let me go ticket. I decided to leave... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending David Allen Grier's performance on March 28, 2015. We loved the new location and parking was great for us. Even though it is a few miles further in travel, it was much more convenient. Looking forward to the next show!

I use to enjoy going to the Baltimore Comedy Factory until they were inflexible and unwilling to change my ticket to a different show due to inclement weather. I've been to the DC Comedy Improv and they were more than willing to accommodate a very similar request. So my advice to you, if there is ANY chance of there being... More
