Great date night

Great place to go on a date because you don't have to come up with a lot of conversation at first...after the show you'll have plenty to talk about!

We had fun. We'll be back. Wiley's has a charm that chains cannot compare. It's in a cool old building, easy to find and good parking. A couple things I'll add with best intentions to be helpful. We're from out of town, so called during business hours several times just to ask a question about visiting the club. No one... More

Still one of the better deals in town. Reasonably priced,good laughs and has a lot more charm than the more commercial alternative. Worth checking out.

New owners are trying to modernize the club, I hope it doesn't loose it's vintage charm. Prices are good and they are still bringing in good talent (some better than others). Good staff and lots of great history.

This is the best Comedy Club in town. Do research who you are to see. Not everyone is worth seeing. Be prepared to be heckled. Happened to me and comedian would not give up.

We saw Dan St. Paul last weekend. What a great performance. Wiley's is a great venue for comedy. Intimate setting, decent service. Just wish they had a better wine selection, but it's not a deal breaker.

Wiley's comedy club offer a variety of comics that are funny and is conveniently located in the Oregon District. It's a great place to go and start or finish you evening off depending on your plans. There's a full bar if you want to relax but since there's a two drink minimum as with all club, it's a choice. There's... More

Only been here twice but the comedians were good both times. Staff was great but the drinks and food left a lot to be desired. Not great and small menu. Good deal for a fun night out if you can get the free tickets, but I wouldn't pay to go. Great location in the oregon district to go out before... More

Wiley's Comedy Joint has to be the best bang for your buck in Dayton. From Dave Chappell to Ron White they all take the stage at Wiley's. The new owners are putting a modern twist on a classic club. The new menu is delicious and the drinks are cheaper than most bars in the Oregon District. A must see if... More

Wileys offers a variety of comedians, as well as other performers. I have been here on many occasions, including to see a Burlesque show. I have enjoyed every visit. Must be 18 years old to get in door, the staff is friendly and the service is good.
