We had a good night out at this comedy club. The place is set in a basement and its a bit gloomy but all good for a comedy show. We went to a 10pm Saturday show. Will be back.

So you are done with shopping in Causeway Bay. You have done your fair share of pub crawling in Central. You have explored the street markets in Mongkok. Heck, you have even explored Stanley and Shek-O. So what's next? Try the Take Out Comedy. Discreetly...More
