My wife and I attended a show on a Friday evening in December and had a good time. Luckily we had dinner prior to the show or it might have been a different story! The venue is as you would expect for a comedy club, kinda dingy and dark. A little cramped but it was not packed so we had... More

I took my adult children to the club (as I have done before); however, the last visit was very disturbing in that the primary comedian talked at length in very crude terms about relatively " kinky" sexual practices. (When I said what, Tripadviser would not print my first review; therefore, I had to "clean up " my review and not... More

We had the opportunity to see a live improv show recently in DC. I do not remember the name of the comedian who appreared first but she was pretty humerous as an opening act before Arsenio. We liked the show and seeing the ELECTION had just happened he was pretty unbiased BUT the audience definitely leaned left. It was a... More

This is the first comedy club/caberet type place that had very good food - a notch above typical bar good. Servers were professional, friendly, and in a venue like this -- really took their cues from the entertainment to not be intrusive. Go have fun and laugh!

What saved this review was the service and friendliness of the staff. Otherwise the headliner was hilarious. Seating is very cramped, so be prepared to sit very close to everyone. The location is downstairs in a basement setting, so if you are not able to use stairs be prepared for some challenges with finding an elevator. Food was the basic... More

After many years in DC - finally went with friends for a Birthday night out. Very inexpensive unless you go all out with food and drinks. Good comedians. Raunchy, topical, and good humor as one would expect. Get there early. It's open seating for the exact number of chairs in the room.

We were in town for Labor Day weekend and decided to head to DC Improv. The comedians were absolutely amazing and we laughed most of the night. The door price wasn't too bad but the two drink/food minimum per person was a little much. They use the most of every single inch of the table and chair place so going... More

I've been to the DC Improv a dozen times. The tickets are usually between $20 - $25 each depending on who is performing. Shows for well known comics tend to sell out quickly since the venue is fairly small. You will be tightly seated next to a stranger. They have reconfigured the middle section tables which is helpful. It used... More

Good atmosphere, beer is decent, food is OK. Great shows. I recommend this on Sundays especially when there's nothing else to do, grab a show!
