Took a trip to Tampa from Naples to see Anjelah Johnson at The Tampa Improv. This girl was on fire! Have seen all her specials on Netflix and she brought brand new material that was hilarious! One of the funniest shows I've ever seen. The Tampa Improv is located in the Ybor District. Stayed at a hotel that was walking... More

My friends and I saw Lil Duval here on a recent vacay. We actually missed our Friday night show and the Improv was gracious enough to extend our tix for a Sunday show. The theatre itself is vintage and cute. There's a full bar and kitchen for patrons. The hostess' and wait staff were prompt and courteous. The only issue... More

Always enjoy every comedian. We typically get dinner here. The food is bar food (you are in a bar) but the food is good and usually quick. The food and drinks are typically priced for any comedy show. Wait staff is attentive and is there for your next drink.

Comedians were funny for sure but eat dinner first. Food was mediocre and 4 at our table, one meal came after the other 3 had finished. Server not personable to say the least. Not even a comped glass of wine for the misstep.

It's a beautiful space and other than raking the audience, the back half of the space makes you feel far, far away. Felt like I was at the Hollywood Bowl!() There is no "intimacy" to the space. Look comedians are an act. Stand up is an art form. So the level of 'funny' can vary even among top headliners, so... More

Excellent service from the greeters and waitstaff on January 5th. This establishment knows how to run a first class operation. I would highly recommend this place to new and returning customers.

This was my second experience going to this comedy club. I bought tickets the day of the show to see Bert Kreischer on 12/1 with a friend of mine. We showed up 40 mins early and were seated in the middle center of the 1st floor. The room was crowded but not uncomfortable. Drinks were pricey but I suppose that... More

The Tampa Improv is an all around nice venue. Great value from the acts I saw to the reasonably priced food and drinks. They sat me on the balcony off to one side in a corner at first. When I asked to move the staff was very helpful and made it happen no problem. The opening house act was clean,... More

I have a friend of mine who performs here and he had been bugging me to go. So finally I said I have a companion coming to town and if you could hook me up with some comps, I'll go. Well, I have never looked back. I have been 6 times just in August ( I paid for the other... More
