This comedy place is simple. You come in, you can buy candy or drinks at the concession stand, and you sit around the stage. It was funny. Two out the three acts were pretty funny. I would highly recommend this place for a night out...More

Had a great time. Had a good selection of beer, mixed drinks, and wine about $10, some snacks. Small place with a good vibe. We saw Nicole Byer. She is so amazing!!! We definitely will be back.

This was my first time seeing comedy in a small venue and it was great. Fewer people means less chance of having a heckler or person with annoying over the top laugh or something else that ruins the show. No drink minimum. There is a...More

We loved the small feel of this venue. Fun atmosphere with a nice mix of drinks and snacks. Not sure the talent is always top notch but not bad.

Comedy may have been directed at College Students. Talk was mostly about Marijuana and male anatomy. Not good for mature adults. Concession Stand was far from adequate, and general atmosphere was dismal.

This is a very nice comedy club. We have been to a few different clubs and they tend to be seedy. This was not in any way. Clean well lit lobby. Nice assortment of libations and snacks for sale. The venue is rather small, but...More

We were in town and wanted to try a comedy club for a night out. We were disappointed in the movie theater style seating and concession style bar. We are used to bistro tables with table bar and food service. The stand up comedy was...More

My husband went to see a headliner and the opening act was funnier. We were looking for something to do and pick a same day show. The $25 ticket was worth it. The location was great and the space is very clean. They only have...More

Saw Rory Albanese tonight. Fantastic! We had a great time. He has this comedy thing down to a "science". Very witty. The club itself was clean. It matches up to clubs I have been to in CT, NY and Vegas. Prices for the booze were...More
