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

Date night with my husband January 3, 2015 was spent at the early show at the Baltimore Comedy Factory. This was not my first visit to the Comedy Factory, but it was my first visit to the new location. The club is now located inside a major hotel with GREAT parking on site. This is a BIG plus from downtown,... More

I'm typing this review while I'm waiting for the 9:30 show to start. Unfortunately, it's now 10 pm and we still haven't been seated. The new location is at a Best Western hotel in Baltimore. That should have been red flag #1. The new location is technically in the hood. Parking is free, yet free is not always good. We... More

I've been to the Baltimore Comedy Factory on Light street, Power Plant, and now Best Western. This might just be my last. PROS: Drinks were not bad. There is not a bad seat in the house - due to set-up. Much cleaner facility and rest rooms. CONS: Parking was horrid. I guess due to the location and being in and... More
