I didn't, and got a filthy-mouthed, fat black lady talking about getting shot, doing drugs and other illegal stuff. The 2 warm-up acts were funny and mostly clean, and the servers were polite. Next time I'll research the headline act before I go!

We frequent side splitters and its great for date might, party of friends and everything in between. Call ahead and ask if there are
Specials or sign up for their emails. I always get free tickets. I've seen no names comedians that were hysterical there, and big names that weren't. Comedy is a grab bag but its always a great time. Usually the place is packed but it's a nice very dark setting. Go, laugh, have fun, bring lots of friends and have an after party at your house.

I like comedy clubs. Over the years I've seen some really funny people. So, when a friend celebrated his retirement at Side Splitters last Friday, I was eager for a good laugh. WRONG!!! The host was awful and the warm up act was just so-so. I'd heard good things about the headliner, but instead almost walked out. The first 15 minutes of his routine dealt with the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman affair. This is NOT a subject matter for jokes. That was a tragedy. One man died and another might as well have. He then proceeded to finish his hour or so with very average material along with the liberal use of the MF word. I'm not a prude. I've heard it before and expected to hear blue language in a comedy club, but after a while, the repetition just became boring. I won't be back for a long while.

Second visit to this place. Won't comment on the acts as they vary and some are good and some bad. First visit was a fairly good experience second visit was not. hence an average rating. Facility is fairly clean, seating comfortable and good vision. 2 drink minimum at about an average of $8 a pop. If you want your drink on the rocks it is a dollar extra! Over prices bar food available.
