Went to see Steve Hofstetter on a Wednesday night. Got down there early and parked at 3115 Broadway - which is a pretty scary looking parking garage, but we got it at a cheap price via SpotHero ($11). (The garage was not a bad experience, but it was dark, lots of beer cans and bottles, nobody around, very spooky.) Got... More

We were there for "Date, Drink, Laugh" and had a great time. They get the audience involved and it makes for an ever changing show. The host was great and the staff was wonderful.

I went to the Nasty Show at the Laugh Factory and it was pretty good! Some comedians were much better than others. I would recommend getting the VIP pass (especially during the winter) so that you don't have to stand in line outside and get first pick of seats. There is unfortunately a two drink minimum but if you get... More

Most of the acts literally put me to sleep. I did NOT like the fact that they FORCED you to buy drinks, but did not serve food. I mean, I don't drink alcohol so, why would I want to drink anything without food? The last act was OKAY, but not that funny. The drinks were over priced and finding parking... More

I have gone to free comedy nights and had the same amount of laughs. Two of the 6 or 7 acts were great. The rest I struggled to laugh at.

We visited the Laugh Factory on extremely short notice, and were pleasantly surprised that we could still get tickets. We attended "Your Featured Presentation," which was setup like Mystery Science Theater meets Jeopardy/@Midnight. We watched a condensed B film, where audiences members were encouraged to chime in and commentate with the five comedians (two hosts and three guests). The movie... More

Most of the comedians were funny the drinks were OK I did not really like the fact that you had to have a minimum of two drinks per person even if other members in your party drink more than two time of the show was the okay length of the show was OK the time was OK

We saw a Friday evening show, with several comics doing short sets. Two of the five were hilarious, two were funny, and one was pretty much offensive and not really funny. The host was funny as well. There is a two drink minimum, which was good because there weren't enough servers to get much more service than that. Overall, we... More

We booked a trip to Chicago for a long weekend and had reserved 2 tickets at the laugh factory for a 9pm show. A few hours before the show, we called to confirm the address, and we were informed that our show was cancelled. We were given the option to watch another show (we booked "The best of Chicago", and... More
