“Waste of an evening”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Couldn't remember the opening act but it involved a very raunchy act by a women that was far from entertaining. Was disappointed with Amy Shumer. Was expecting to spend the hour laughing, but instead it was a rambling commentary on everthing sexual. Way to many people packed in this old building. I wonder how they get around the fire codes. Be prepared to sit "elbow to elbow", while seated on chairs that have the illusion of padding on the seats. Check your receipt closely as we were charged for an extra beer that we didn't order or drink.

“We love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We have come to the Punchline about 15 times. Lynn Koplitz made us laugh until we cried. We hadn't heard of Trevor Noah, but fell in love with him and his accent and smart, fantastic comedy. Craig Shoemaker was a total pro, too, and had some of the most unique comedy we'd ever seen.

It is a tight squeeze in there, and it is 30 years old. But it is a must-see place if you like comedy. Where else can you go to a 6 pm show on a Saturday? It can set the tone for a great night, whether it is just beginning or coming to an end.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This place looks like a DUMP. Comedy was just OK. WAY out of ATL and way too far to drive. I will not be returning to this one.
