Waitress only made it around once. She served the wrong drinks. We were in the back and could not hear most of what the comics said.

What a fun place for an evening out! Ticket prices to see the weekend comedy shows are reasonable (some open mike nights during the week) and you can often find half-price offers....drop your business card into their box and you're sure to get a freebie of some kind. Once in this cozy 3-level theatre (a drastic improvement from their prior location), the minimum order is 2 items, either from the drinks (soft or alcoholic) or menu. (finger foods and dessert.) We generally get their buffalo wings (a full basket for $9), or their smoke house burger ($9.50). Their baskets of onion rings are thick and juicy, bet you can't eat just one! For dessert, you CAN'T MISS their 2-layer chocolate mousse cake ($6), actually so huge and rich it can be shared by 2 or 3 people depending on how big your chocolate fix is! (We usually order in advance for our table so it doesn't sell out). They offer a variety of fun and tasty drinks, along with standard beer and wine varieties. My favorite is the Babbling Nut, a combination of Hazelnut liqueur, Coffee Liqueur, Amaretto, Baileys, a splash of coca-cola and Half-and-Half. Another "bet you can't drink just one". I've also delighted in the Good News, Bad News (fruity and tropical) and the Knock Knock Joke, Specialty drinks are around $7.50, soft drinks $2. The comedy show usually features an MC, an opening act, and a nationally renowned act. On Christmas Eve, we saw Richard Pryor's daugher Rain, and headliner Marc Unger. Have seen many shows in the past, rarely disappointed with the entertainment. For a good, inexpensive night out, this is a must! Reservations can be made by phone or online www.magoobys.com
