The hubby and I went on a whim on a Saturday night. I read a lot of the reviews here first and decided to go with the dinner package and I am so glad we did. First of all there was not a long line MAYBE 10 minutes but not bad at all. If you choose the dinner option you... More

I had never been here before, but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked through the unassuming storefront under the marquee and down the stairs into the cave-like basement. The bar was cheerful and tastefully lit. The walls are covered with photos of comedians who had previously played the club. The club itself is pleasant, although dimly lit, which is... More

So much fun, I wasn't sure what to expect but we couldn't stop laughing at the improv actors and actresses. There was audience participation, which was awesome.

I saw Gary Owen here. We had a great time. The venue was spacious and you didn't feel all cramped like in other comedy clubs. The service was also very good. Every seat in the venue was good where you could see the stage very well. It was also very clean there. It's a 2 drink (item) minimum which is... More

Ok so yes as everyone states there is a line that you have to wait in to get into the club. Relax people. It doesn't take that long and we visited on a sold out night with Deon Cole. All 3 acts were good some great! It was a fun night for all of us that attended. The prices are... More

I bought tickets to see Rob Schneider 3 months in advance and the seats sucked. He was great but it's a terrible seating chart. We even got here 50 minutes early and waited in line. I looked at the back of a women's head the whole time. Below was my view.

Went to the first show on a Saturday night. Woodfield was packed and took a while to find a parking spot. I think they had valet parking for $8 but we found a spot eventually. I would want to do the dinner-before option next time. The menu looked good and the food looked good as we saw it getting served.... More

My husband and I went this last weekend to see Piff the Magic Dragon. The first problem we came across is the ticket said doors open 30 minutes before the show. We arrived 30 minutes before show to stand in a long line in the cold. They then only let about 10 people in at a time about 10 minutes... More
