This was a great place to go for an evening of standup comedy! The show went from 8:30 to 10:30 and tickets could be purchase at the door. We would highly recommend it.

Good comedy. Comedians were a lot of fun. Just enough audience participation. Food Not so great. Good way to fill an evening. Easy walk from local hotels. Purchasing a certain amount of food and drink is a requirement.
