Recently went to a 8 PM show here on a Monday night. It was a lot of fun with short sets from up-and-coming comics and surprise guests like Jim Gaffigan. (He was funny!) There's a two drink minimum and you can also order food. The...More

Went with family (teenagers) and everyone had a great time with ~10 new comics. Most were hilarious. Less overpriced drinks than other comedy clubs.

A nice locale, good food and drinks, helpful and service minded staff. And then there is the comedians. You’ll see someone known from television, someone completely unknown, all hilariously funny. They are good at using the audience, both for energy and jokes. They are not...More

I know comedians are always hit or miss, but this night they were on. We enjoyed the show, server was very nice and our seats were comfortable. I would go there again next time I am in town.

Good seats only in the "pit" or front row of upper level next to railing. Not the best sound system or most of the acts don't enunciate.

We enjoyed our visit. There were four comedians. One was a warm-up (the MC) and three acts. Two of the acts were still shaking out their routine. The final act was dreadful and lost the audience. The club is very comfortable and drinks are reasonably...More

We prebooked for a weekend night, and it was a full house. It's a popular place! To secure a table, I'd prebook.
