Good comedy, bad food.

We have seen several comedians over the years and have not been disappointed by their performances. Every seat we have had has a clear view of the stage and the sound system is... read more

My husband and I frequent the Improv. They have a nice variety of comedians, cocktails and food. While there is a variety of food, it isn't the best tasting food in the city. I'd recommend dinner before or after your show on the West Bank of the flats. The space is somewhat tight, so plan to get cozy with your... More

RACIAL PROFILING AT ITS FINEST (At a venue that survives off of Black dollars)! I went to this club on 4/28/2016 with 3 friends. I had to leave the venue early because of another engagement (while my 3 friends remained). On the way out of the venue, I was chased down by a worker and accused of walking out without... More

My guy and I were here in March 2015 to see Carlos Mencia's comedy act. We got a deal for tickets on Group-on. This venue is small inside and the Ticket box location isn't in the best spot when there's mostly standing room only if you get there early near the lobby bar. The customer service of the staff could... More

Had dinner and a show.. The food was good, not excellent but very good.. The waiters were not the friendliest people but they got their job done. Would go back for another show for sure..

Went with my husband for a Friday night date. Sat right in front of the stage and had dinner reservations. Salad was out of a bad, steak was thin and not seasoned well, potatoes were baked. Average, BUT the staff was more than accommodating and courteous. Really great MC

We have seen several comedians over the years and have not been disappointed by their performances. Every seat we have had has a clear view of the stage and the sound system is good. No problem with the venue, location , parking, or staff. In fact, the waiters have been better than most restaurants. The staff we have had come... More

We went early on a Saturday to have dinner before the show. We asked to be seated outside for dinner, which they accommodated. However, when we moved into the venue, our server all but disappeared. He came around right at the beginning of the show, and we didn't see him again until the end of the show. Was it because... More

Some of the material was pretty raunchy, but the service was pretty good. We got in free because a girl in our group was on a mailing list that sends free tickets. I'm not sure how much tickets are, but I would go again even if I had to pay.
