My first time here. Three comics, all were enjoyable though I thought the first one on targeted to many patrons sitting in the audience. 2 beverage minimum required. Staff diligent about checking IDs.

Great venue and lots of laughs. Pricing not unreasonable. Go early for best seating. Before going you can check out most of the headliners on you tube and get a feel for there comedy.

Went to spend some time laughing. Comedians were good. There is a 2 drink minimum and soda counts. It is a roomy comedy club. You don’t feel cramped like most comedy places.

This is my second visit to the improv, and it’s been nothing but laughs. A gem in the desert that brings in some great comedic talent. Great food and served quickly by friendly staff. Look forward to my next visit.
