This was our second visit to the comedy club. We absolutely loved it they are two for two. This year show was a stereo typical revue style and it was phenomenal. Funny and witty.

We were looking for something to do and went to the Improv show. Talented performers and had a great time. Got there early and ordered dinner. The burger was fantastic. Definitely worth the price of admission and a true local thing to do.

The comedy was entertaining, but some of the skits lacked "pop". The cast itself worked well as a cohesive group. I left the show feeling that the show needed more substance. I would still recommend this venue, just temper your expectations.

Went to the late 11 pm show, bonus- free street parking after 10 pm. Show was witty and entertaining, impressed with actors' great improvising skills. Purchased tickets at goldstar at half price, so it it was definitely worth the value.
