Came across the Tuesday comedy nights at the Throckmorton when staying in the area for a month and went along a couple of times. Having been to comedy clubs before I know they can be patchy but I thoroughly enjoyed both nights and the relaxed hosting by Mark Pitta. Nice touch is the performers making themselves available for a chat... More

This is a fantastic little theater but big talent. The ONLY drawback is the seating...crummy little seats and tables crammed in. But the rest is wonderful.

We are regulars for Tuesday night comedy, and always have a good time. There are off nights, when we don't love all the comedians, but in spite of that we keep coming back-and are always entertained. We've also been to hear music and the venue is the perfect sized.

Mill Valley wouldn't be the same without the Throckmorton theater. Offering live entertainment. There is always something tempting on the menu. Tuesday nights comedy is a sure bet for fun!

The eclectic range of shows at this delightful little theater hold there own against any big city venue. The great Robin Williams appeared here regularly as does Mort Sahl and numerous headliner musicians and bands. Please support this local jewel.

We had a group in town and enjoyed an evening meal at Balboa Cafe and a show at the Throckmorton Theatre. We attended a Tuesday "Mark Pitta & Friends" comedy show. I think we saw four comedians plus the MC. The show started with a beginner and ended with the headliner. We all enjoyed the evening.

142 Throckmorton Theater is in the middle of town and the facility abounds with incredible variety: from Comedy Night on tuesdays with Mark Pitta where you might see Robin Williams or Dana Carvey jump up on stage with the scheduled comics, to very serviceable renditions of golden age Broadway musicals (that you always meant to see but never did) by...
