The comedians are funny and the room is cozy with every seat being close to the stage. However, they tell you to be there 90 minutes before showtime so that you're forced to order food and drinks while you wait. That's not the problem - the problem is that the food is horrible tasting, much of it comes out room temperature, and everything is over salted, requiring you to order more to drink to get rid of the aftertaste. Everyone we talked to around us complained of the same bad food experience, many of whom have been their several times and were hoping for better.
If you eat elsewhere and the show sells out they will seat you individually - you bought seats, not a table - so if you eat at Gordon Biersch and then show up at 7:15 for a 7:30 show, you and your date might be given separate seats across the room from each other.
Hopefully this business model is changed soon. They got us once, but if it happens a second time then we'll stick with that OTHER comedy club downtown on Salina Street.
