“Lots of laughs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

McCurdy himself opened the show and was fantastic. The other comics and the headliner were OK. Great atmosphere and location.

“Love The New Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I lived in Chicago for 9 years and McCurdys can rival a big city comedy club on certain nights. The opening acts aren't the best but Les McCurdy and the headliners make up for it. It's great that a city the size of Sarasota can attract some of the best comedians in the country to play here. Moving to their new location has been a blessing for downtown. It makes grabbing dinner and drinks before a show much more convenient.

“So FUN! Lots of laughs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We have been there 4 times- lots of fun! Can't wait to go to the new location! Les McCurdy is extremely engaging as MC! Will definitely go again!
Only thing lacking is decent food - but really- who cares?

“fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The recent move to downtown Sarasota is the best thing that has happened recently. I could just sit and laugh at Les <McCurdy for the entire evening. Last night we saw john DeCrosta for the 2nd time. He is a riot. We rally liked the idea of the "green Room" and everything was much cleaner looking. And no duct tape on the carpet.!! Really enjoyed ourselves. If visiting the area, this is a must place to spend an evening.
