We attended both the improv portion and the standup open mic. Both were funny, entertaining, and interesting. The open mic had a few duds, several good ones and one really good one. Lots of comedy value for only $10. The venue is small, and cozy....More

This is a neat venue in downtown Oshkosh that is an intimate setting for some adult improv. These are local young actors on their up, but put on a show equal to professionals. We've been there twice and enjoyed it both times.

I had some girlfriends in town visiting, we went out for a bottle of wine and then stumbled into this place. The show was hilarious - but it could have been the wine. I could not stop laughing, can't wait to try it out again....More

Bout time oshkosh got a comedy club! Although its new the price is comparable and worthwhile for something other than a bar night or movie theater. Improv that includes audience idea-participation and many laughs! Good cast connections!
