“Excellent. Never dissapoints.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This show is always great. The comics are consistently good. On occasion a newbie will come up who isn't as polished as the others, but considering where the show is and the venue, this is an hidden gem. I never fail to have a good time and one of the best parts is watching the reactions of all the other audience members who are in stitches the entire time. Great cultural mix at the Hyatt show as well - all walks of life, race, orientation enjoying a great time. Many of these comics are better than what you find on TV.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I didn't have high hopes for this show given it was at a hotel in Bethesda and only cost $10. But we live near by so we tried it and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the talent. Lots of laughs. Look forward to returning.

“My stand up Debut!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great way to spend an early Saturday evening! No reservations are permitted or required. It is first come first seated. No saving seats but it did happen and i stopped short of making a scene. The manager was kind enough to find us another table seat since we did bring food with us from the Daily Grill. I would not recommend doing 'to go' food for the show, just because not many others chose to do that. the one comedian described it best.."you are NOT in a comedy club, you are in a small conference room in the basement of a hotel with a fake brick stage drape"...that was funny, but the quality of the entertainment was excellent. There was a nice mix of 'newbie' comics who you could tell were a little nervous but did their best and enough very talented artists at the skill of making people laugh that it was thoroughly a positive experience and 2 hours that passed very quickly! I suppose it made it even better when in the finale portion of the show, 3 audience members were invited to tell a joke to win a prize of a t-shirt. The first 3 were so bad, the host offered for one more to step-up...sucker that i am..i felt i could do better than they did. Of course i proceeded to tell a fairly funny 2 line joke..leaving out one of the key words, making it sound totallly stupid!! One more woman was given a chance after my fiasco..lol...and she pulled it off to win the prize. My date and i laughed more at my faux pas than any of the jokes told. A good time was had by all..:)

“Cheap Night Out!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

$10 cover gets you a night of laughs. Talent varies, but it's less than the cost of a movie ticket. Full bar available during show, but not food. Lots of places to dine before or after in Bethesda and you can even bring in your own carryout.

“Great time at Laugh Riot last night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2009

My wife and I went to the show last night (12/26/09) and we had a great time. The MC was halarious as well as the headliner. The only bad thing was that the new guy (who was funnier than the second guy) was only allowed a few minutes. Definately bring the new guy back! All in all it was a great time and we can't wait to go back.
