10minutes per comic was just right to get a feel for their style. A variety of material with very little politics. Drew the audience in and even up on stage! Tight seating and rapid turnover of acts made it almost impossible to get up to...More

Nice venue with an underlying message. Unfortunately, I do t think the hung comedians know this before the entertain for probably free. This is not a place for a socialist, liberal protest. Save you money.

Purchased tickets online in advance. General admission provided several choices. Sat on risers in back. Perfect acoustics. Only drawback is no food was served. Loved the comedy. Laughed so hard!

I'm very picky about my comedy. So many comedians just go for the "shock value". Truly funny people don't need to do that. Our headliner was Dana Gould and he was brilliant. There were several warm-up comedians that night as well, and I thought they...More
