“Dinner and Laughs at Absolute Comedy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We were visiting Ottawa for the weekend and travelling with teens, (they were too young for the bar scene and we felt too old), so what does one do on a Sunday evening? We are frequent cruisers and always enjoy the comedy clubs on the ships, so we decided to try Absolute Comedy which offered a dinner/show combination. We booked for six people on the phone a week in advance. When we arrived, we walked into what looked like an empty neighborhood pub complete with a bar and a pool table with a side board of steam trays and our first impressions were anything but positive. Our wives (we were two couples each with a 15 year old) suggested that we leave and find another venue. That would have been a bad decision. The males in our group persevered and we were seated at a table near the back of the room. The food and service turned out to be very good with roast beef, salads, steamed veggies, pasta etc,. (definitely no epicurean awards, but more than adequate) and all ate heartily. After dinner, we were escorted past the long lines of patrons upstairs to the theatre venue, seated at a large booth with great sightlines to the stage and thoroughly enjoyed three very funny comedians. All this for about twenty-five bucks a head. Great night out!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Always a fun outing. I have been at leat 10 times and it's never a miss. Some course language and quite loud. Bring friends and have a party. Way better deal also compared to yuk yuks.

“Great Acts and Surprisingly Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I've been going to Absolute for a few years now and it never disappoints. But what gets me every time is that their food is decent and well priced. I mean - it's no 5 star restaurant ... but when you're hanging out with your buddies, having a few cold ones, you want something quick and affordable and they give you just that - and then some.

If you're looking for something new to do on date night - check them out. You won't be disappointed!

“Dinner and a show for less than $40”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were a group of 8 who went for the Saturday night buffet and show. We were not disappointed. It isn't a huge place so it's a very comfortable atmosphere and the line up was great.
The buffet was good,with beef, salad, mashed potatoes, and two kinds of pasta. Not a huge selection but it was good.
