I bought tickets for my girlfriend and I 6 weeks in advance. The doors opened at 7:30 and we showed up at 7:45, the door man said the show was sold out and our seats / table were gone. He then said he could let us in but we couldn't sit together. We reluctantly said OK,they then maid us wait... More

We often take in comedy clubs when we travel as a family. Most are good, but this one was sadly disappointing. There's a two drink minimum per person, which isn't necessarily bad, but the disappointing part was that the show, which had two separate performers, was only about an hour total! Would not recommend this, unless the length of the... More

Went with the family to celebrate my birthday. Heather McDonald was very funny and entertaining. (and even stayed around after the show for pictures with the fans). My only complaint is when calling for a reservation, we were put on hold for a while and then disconnected. Had to call back to make reservation and then when we arrived, there... More

I have been to a couple comedy clubs the Ontario improv and Pechanga casino , seating is great , but this one you're like in a garage like Ralphie May joked about it, seating is tight , dark that you can't see what you have in your table , it's just very cramped , I like Pechanga better then Ontario...

My son recommended this venue during my visit prior to his deployment. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The food and drinks were very good. The seating was first come, first seated closest to the stage. The show was entertaining with several openers before the main act. We all laughed a lot and enjoyed the show. The location was...

Came here to see Joey Diaz and Kevin Smith on two separate occasions. Wow this is a place that requires two items per person, it certainly feels better than most other comedy clubs that we've been to. The brownie sundae is surprisingly very good, and the coffee is pretty decent for a club. It is a dim lit main room... More

Our comic, Dav, was very funny. Two item minimum but for a beer and chips it was $17. So not expensive and the food was decent. Place is in the basement, which most comedy clubs are...it could have had more air circulating as the place was tight...and we were packed in...but all in all, the evening was fun and we... More

The worse management I've ever come across! Went there to see Tony rock who was great from the part that I was able to see. However, my cousin had asked for management because the waitress had her waiting for 30 minutes for a drink that she had NEVER put in. The manager came over and began speaking directly over my...

We have been coming here for 2 years and the quality of the talent they bring in is top notch. Better than the Improve most nights

This place has a great vibe, the boozy drink off their secret menu is refreshing & high octane and the chicken Ceasar salad is delish! Comedy is barely under way and I've already nearly wet myself from laughing! :)
