Great location in downtown Sarasota with plenty of parking. Typical comedy club vibe. Small cocktail tables with a full house. A bit disappointing. The host (not sure it was the regular host) set the tone and it was hard for the real comedians to get the crowd going. The headliner was great and finally got everyone laughing. Food was fair....

We attended with another couple and shared an enjoyable evening. Both comics were indeed very funny. Intimate room with excellent views from all seats. Performances were generous in length, and food/beverage prices were modest. Two minor items: the seats could be padded given the duration of show, and the servers might be more attentive. Definitely returning and recommending the venue.

We received free tickets for our birthday. It was a nice surprise so we went with friends. We were given really good seats and the comedians were very funny. It was easy to hit the 2 item minimum purchase ( we went way over) as they have a great food and drink menu. The service was also excellent. Definitely sign... More

While the food is only so-so, and you have to purchase a minimum, the atmosphere and talent make for a fun evening. You will need a reservation. Check in advance to see who is performing as that can make a difference to the entertainment value. Our comedians were funny and the jokes were suitable for all ages, but some are... More

The place seems a bit seedy, but I guess that is what you expect in a comedy club. We enjoyed the opening act, but the featured comic, Bobby Slayton, was just too offensive and insulting to enjoy. We got great seats right up front. They have a two-drink minimum per person. There are lots of specialty drinks but none of... More

Got to see John "Hippieman" Novosad. He was hilarious. The club environment is very nice very clean. Just wish the club had better food on the menu and maybe a better selection of craft beer. All in all had a great time I will definitely visit again.

Went for our anniversary! Had dinner at Siesta Key, drinks at World of Beer, then the show. Park at the parking garage next to McCurdy's for free. Drinks at the Green Room do not count toward your 2 drink minimum. You can walk into World of Beer from the parking garage. Enjoy!

My boyfriend flew into town for two days (he's Military) and I wanted to put together a little date night. I'm not familiar with Sarasota so I searched on Trip Advisor and found this place. I jumped on the website and they seem to have a guest/celebrity performer every weekend. I wasn't familiar with the comedian that night but he... More

We went here on a Saturday evening and had a great time. They have valet parking but we were able to find a spot for free around the corner. We got there early enough to have a drink in the Green Room. There is a 2 purchase minimum in the comedy club per person and our beer in the green... More
