She delivered as expected and did not disappoint the audience. I've seen her in funnier sketches before and last night's set was okay but I hoped for some new material or storyline. Overall, the show was worth it and we had a great time.

My friends and I saw Lil Duval here on a recent vacay. We actually missed our Friday night show and the Improv was gracious enough to extend our tix for a Sunday show. The theatre itself is vintage and cute. There's a full bar and...More

Always enjoy every comedian. We typically get dinner here. The food is bar food (you are in a bar) but the food is good and usually quick. The food and drinks are typically priced for any comedy show. Wait staff is attentive and is there...More

Comedians were funny for sure but eat dinner first. Food was mediocre and 4 at our table, one meal came after the other 3 had finished. Server not personable to say the least. Not even a comped glass of wine for the misstep.

It's a beautiful space and other than raking the audience, the back half of the space makes you feel far, far away. Felt like I was at the Hollywood Bowl!() There is no "intimacy" to the space. Look comedians are an act. Stand up is...More

Excellent service from the greeters and waitstaff on January 5th. This establishment knows how to run a first class operation. I would highly recommend this place to new and returning customers.

The Tampa Improv is an all around nice venue. Great value from the acts I saw to the reasonably priced food and drinks. They sat me on the balcony off to one side in a corner at first. When I asked to move the staff...More

I will be going to a show alone. I will arrive early, to be seated up front. I don't mind sitting with people I don't know, just want to be assured I will sit as close as possible. Suggestions?

You will need to get there early and talk to the host. They are the ones that assign your setting.

The show was about 2 hours when we went. We bought our tickets online the day before and just redeemed them there. I believe the price fluctuates depending on the day of the week and number of tickets already sold. I say... More
