I have not laughed that hard in 20 years! The entertainment was great! Absolutely loved Ron Feingold! The venue is nothing to write home about. It has the same seats you would sit on in a convention type hall.

Who doesn’t enjoy laughing??? McCurdy’s Comedy Theater is so much fun. You can occasionally find Les McCurdy greeting you as you enter the comedy room. Seats are set up so most all views of the stage are great. We like their quesadillas, warm pretzels, and...More

All of the comdians were very funny. Food was good. It was a great time. My only complaint would be that nobody came back around to order more drinks after iur initial order.

We saw Rita Rudner at McCurdys. She performs in Los Vegas and we had heard that her performance is typically sold out. And indeed this performance was sold out. We thoroughly enjoyed her show. The food (2 purchased items are required ) was average; typical...More
