“The show is always funny”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We went to McCurdy's last night at their new location and it was great! The performers never disappoint and the new place is great. I thought the wine was a little too expensive, considering I ate dinner at Owen's and their wine is less than McCurdy's. But, the show was good and the service was pleasant.

“New theatre, same quality shows”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Since April when I wrote a review, McCurdy's has moved downtown. Good move! The Theatre is no longer in a shabby strip mall between a dollar store and pawn shop. the interior of the new theatre stage seems about the same. I would estimate that the seating has increased a bit. There is a bar at the entrance. It's small but beats hanging out outside. The required 2 item minimum ( drinks, snacks) continues. I don't mind this as a way to keep the tickets at a reasonable price - about $20pp. The snacks have improved, but I miss the popcorn The downtown location is next to a parking garage and in a nice area off town. The shows continue to be great Most are nationally known comedians. I wish Les & Pam lots of good luck

“Sweltering in bar show 1+ hrs late so you had to run up bar bill”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Loved old venue. Was at new location in June & loved it then. Went tonight. Bought tickets, about $85 for 2 & walked out before show started. Show scheduled for 9:30, got there at 9, got corralled into tiny sweltering bar, bought a drink, got told show was 'delayed' an hour. Pushing people, in bar like sardines, tried to go stand outside, Couldn't leave w drink, so had to be stuck in this tiny bar with so many people. Host sat us in this seat that my husband couldn't anywhere near fit, and when I sat sat us, they threw our stuff on table & walked away before we could even address them. At that point we'd had enough & left. Sad....

“What a fantastic club!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

The new location on Ringling is really nice. Been going for a couple years to the old location and this is a great change! Sometimes they call and offer free tickets to help fill up the club on slower nights! The headliner never disappoints. As usual there is a 2 item purchase minimum. So the "free" tickets aren't really free, but it's a great gesture and great marketing. Love McCurdy's!
