Totally awesome!

Had a great laugh with all 3 performers and MC was also outstanding. We will be back when we are in Ottawa again.

Way too crowded (I get being full, but I don't want to touch knees with the people at the table next to me) and they don't serve glasses of water (I'd love an explanation on how that's legal).

Really had great fun there. So much, that we went a second time during our time in Ottawa. I really like the concept (being European - it is not very common here). The food was good too and all in all it was very good value for money. I suppose it depends a lot on the comedians and your sense... More

Absolute terrible, the main act could not handle the crowed and asked security to step in, the guy he was complaining about was having fun and laughing like every body. He was not even funny. The Devore in the place looks like it is from the dollar store curtains and all, a total revamp is in order even the comedians... More

Staff are excellent, it's very well run and the talent at this small comedy club was exceptional. We have not laughed that hard in a while. It's what you expect in a small comedy club - nothing fancy but it works and it's comfortable and well worth the cover.

I don't think you can do anything for this price where you will have as much fun. Staff were excellent at organizing, seats were easily accessed. Food (sweet potatoe fries, nachos) was really really good. Price point average. Service, fast. Comedy

First time at a small comedy club and I was very impressed with the quality of comic they attract, all three were good but the main headliner was hilarious. My son and wife go here often and they informed that it is consistently this good and they have only ever had one comic they found boring. The seating is a... More

First time at a smaller comedy club looking for a evening of laughs. The Mc did a great job breaking the ice with a full crowd. Club brought in a full crowd that added to the energetic atmosphere. Highly recommend this place after a great dinner in little Italy.

I always enjoy myself at Absolute Comedy. On any given night, they usually have a good amount of talent to keep the laughs going. I find it odd that you can only buy water though. Like no free tap water, even when I'm ordering a beer?
