We saw Lenny Schmidtt, who was fair. The MC was talented, but the other acts were pretty weak. I expect to be packed around a child-sized table at a comedy club, but this venue really has not been kept up. The staff is humorless. With a virtual monopoly on stand-up, now, Zanies ownership seems contented to live on fading memories of better days. What a shame.

A comedy club is only as good as the act, the night we were there it was great, we saw
Emo Philips. We got there early so we got second row seats which were perfect , had some adult beverages and laughed our fannies off . Great wait staff and a really good time.

This is a good club to visit if you are in Chicago as a tourist. Not far from downtown in the Old Town area (near North Ave & Wells). The cost is apx $22 per person, plus a minimum two drink charge. So figure about at least $75 per couple. The night we went (in Apr 07) the two lead-in comics were so-so. One wasn't very experienced nor funny, but tried hard. The other had a strange delivery that threw his punch lines off. The headliner was good, however. None of the humor was raunchy, I think
it's one of the venue's rules. Didn't miss it though. The place itself is quite small, kind of dingy (but in a good way as it gives it atmosphere) and the tables are very close together. Waitstaff did a great job maneuvering around. All in all, not a bad night out. You could do worse. But comics certainly don't compare to some of the acts seen in Vegas, on TV, etc. If you like improv you would be better off going a block or two away to the legendary Second City.
