Chicago Improv is a nice venue but Rodman was not funny. very dry and slow and repetitive. The four of us ended up leaving early. We have previously watched very funny comedians there.

4 stars for great location, good value, amazing comedian variety, and helpful staff. Located at Woodfield mall, this joint is surrounded by shops and restaurants--- how can anyone complain? Due to the multiple popular restaurateur by Improv, parking sometimes is dreadful! For $22 per person, you can enjoy 1.5 hours of laughter from your favorite comedian or a new comedian... More

My husband and I enjoyed seeing Carlos Mencia while here. I was surprised as to how big and nice this facility was. We had a great time and enjoyed some great drinks. The service was lacking and I was disappointed because I would have drank more had we of seen our waitress more than a couple of times. We didn't... More

So much fun, a great place to go on a date night or with a group of friends. Classy, clean atmosphere, good food, great drink options. Minimum 2 food/drink order required. Ticket prices are very reasonable. Business casual to dressy dress code, people from all walks of life. Staff was very attentive. Mostly tables and booths, not rows like an... More

I really like the Improv and have been there a half-dozen times by now. Located in the Woodfield Mall, it's very accessible. Parking is plentiful with the addition of the new enclosed parking lot. But if you want to park right near the Improv, arrive early, as there are restaurants on this side, and parking is usually pretty full. The... More

After a long not-very-funny week, a good laugh is welcome. We go to the Improv often because they have great shows and really know how to take care of customers. It seems that businesses spend so much time on getting new customers that the ignore the ones they already have and I'm happy to say that is not the case... More

The hubby and I went on a whim on a Saturday night. I read a lot of the reviews here first and decided to go with the dinner package and I am so glad we did. First of all there was not a long line MAYBE 10 minutes but not bad at all. If you choose the dinner option you... More

I had never been here before, but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked through the unassuming storefront under the marquee and down the stairs into the cave-like basement. The bar was cheerful and tastefully lit. The walls are covered with photos of comedians who had previously played the club. The club itself is pleasant, although dimly lit, which is... More

So much fun, I wasn't sure what to expect but we couldn't stop laughing at the improv actors and actresses. There was audience participation, which was awesome.
