My girlfriends and I went to celebrate one of our birthdays. Ricky Smiley was the headliner and the house comedian, Alabama, was the opening act. Both were absolutely hilarious! The club is actually located inside a hotel, but there is plenty room inside the club. I've been several times and prefer to sit on the opposite side of the room,... More

This was my second time being to the new location. I really like it; the parking is free and the space if large. It's not like some of the comedy clubs where they squish people in like sardines and you have to disrupt other tables if you need to get up to go the restroom or something. It used to... More

We went to see Huggy Lowdown. It was a good show and good venue. All three comedians were funny. The tickets were pretty high and then a two drink minimum a bit ambitious I think.

This was actually our 2nd time there. The first time they were located very close to the inner harbor, about 2 blocks away from our hotel. The new location is off of a highway and located inside of best western hotel. The comedians were funny. It was well organized and there was a large crowd. There is a 2 drink... More

I've been to the comedy factory numerous times and each time every comedian has delivered. However, the comedy factory is located inside of a Best Western and the decor is outdated. I'm not sure of the agreement between the hotel and the factory, but some extra love and attention should be given to area the factory is in to make... More

I purchased $25 VIP tickets for myself and my son to see our favorite comedian, Deon Cole. This was our first visit in the new location (O'Donnell Street in Baltimore, MD), and I immediately loved that open and free parking was readily available as opposed to where they were located prior: downtown Baltimore where parking in a garage was over-priced...

I always enjoy coming here and seeing the different comedians. I recently saw Tony Roberts and Meschelle! Both were hilarious. Keep in mind you have 2 drink minimum but you can always buy bottled water.

The Baltimore Comedy Factory. We have had some great date nights here! The emcee, Alabama, is great. Every comedian we've seen has made us crack up. We've seen well known comics like Tim Meadows here, and some we have not heard of, but each one has given us so many laughs. I recommend this place highly. By the way, this... More

I was a little leery of a comedy venue inside a hotel but was pleasantly surprised. The room is big enough to hold a decent crowd but small enough that no seat is a bad seat. There is a 2-drink minimum but that is fairly common & was doable. The wait staff was very friendly & attentive. Food looked good... More

Sorry previous post had me laughing, “Racist against both Black and Whites” Is that even possible? Oh well, I go there frequently and always have a great time, I appreciate the security, because the get rid of people that disrupt the shows quickly, and nothing is worse than trying to watch a show and have to listen to idiots try...
