Although a couple of the more than a dozen 'comedians' were ok to average the rest umm'd & aah'd through what they admitted was new material & fell flat or plummeted like a rock. The first thing U are told by the doorman on arrival is the "2 drink minimum per person" that mantra was repeated as much as the... More

We went to see the Show on Christmas Eve and we understood that this day would not attract any big names. Mostly the comedians were young guys trying to make an extra buck. Many of the performers made a point out of saying how poor they were and yet their stories made it clear that they had money for both... More

You won't find places like this too much anymore. One of the old comedy clubs that sprouted up in the 70's. This place is awesome with a great atmosphere.

We were visiting from the UK and had a great evening here. The venue is nothing special but acts were all funny and the evening was good value. We tried 4 different comedy nights on a three week visit to California and this was the best including one in San Francisco and one in Vegas.

we come here every couple of months when we see some of our favorite comics perform. we always go to the later show. the 2 drink minimum is kinda ridiculous but thats my only (kinda) complaint. the staff is always cool. the comics normally take pics with you after the show which is always nice to meet someone that makes...

Last weekend we went to the comedy store for some fun on a Saturday night. We got our tickets on line that day. We were running a bit late and ended up parking in the Von's parking lot behind the club (since its hard to find parking in La Jolla). Although noticed last minute that we shouldn't park there we...

You want funny laugh your sides off - this is the place. Don't expect fanfare and luxury. It's a basic comedy store and that's what you'll get. I loved it. Comedy was raw, un-pc and in your face. And very funny.

I watch a LOT of comedy shows and this is a a really great venue to catch a show. On weekends, they import the best of the performers from the Comedy Store Hollywood and during the week they have great local talent. It's a big room that feels small and you get the chance to meet the performers and take... More

Tickets were $23.00 each with a 2 drink minimum per person (another $10.00 per person). The comedians were terrible and would have been a complete waste of time if the show was free. Overall, don't waste your money on this! Maybe it was a bad night but for a Friday night show, this place was horrible. The staff was nice... More
