This place was over the road from our hotel so we decided to see if we could get tickets an hour before the show and got lucky. Talented comics doing rehearsed sketches but also requiring a fair amount of ad lib. Most of the sketches...More

Don't pay for a reserved seat, not worth it. But if you do, make sure they seat you in a reserved seat.

Went to the early show for 7:30. This was my third time there. As always, the cast was amazing. Very talented. Got there half an hour before the show so we had better choices of seats. The only downside is that they don’t have you...More

We've been to SC many times over the years, but not since it moved to its current fancier digs on Mercer St. It's less intimate than Old Firehall was, and we were surprised to find that our 'reserved' seats were right at the back. Since...More

I agree with the previous review. It wouldn’t be terrible for your 14 year old. It might be a bit boring for them however unless they watch a lot of news and they have an adult vocabulary.
