The show was great...very funny. The venue still needs a little improvement. It's an OK setup..tables and a stage. They could set up a little better food/drink area, but it's ok. You can get drinks and a few snacks. Do not plan to eat dinner...More

The Black Rock CFA is a great venue for a variety of performances. The acoustics are good as is the line of sight from most seats. Parking is available nearby. The staff is friendly and helpful. I've enjoyed their shows.
