Two friends and I booked dinner and show on Saturday October 24, the headline act was Dave O'Neill.
We arrived at 7pm but the theatre was locked up. At 8pm, the manager of the restaurant next door rang the manager of the theatre who told him he believed the show had been cancelled. We had not received a text or email advising us of this and there was no sign on the door.
We emailed the Comedy Club office, but did not receive a reply, so we went to their office. We were told that they had moved out a week before.
We then visited the theatre. The Ticketek people were very helpful even though we had booked directly with the Comedy Club. They suggested we write a letter to the director of the Comedy Club. Sproutix replied. They are chasing the Comedy Club but they are not holding out much hope that we will get our money back.
The Comedy. Club website is still up and running and is advertising for their November and December shows!

We had an amazing night, the comedians were pretty funny, haven't laugh so much in years! the staff is very friendly and the food was quite good. We have been there twice and both times have had a really good time. highly recommended if you want to spend a nice relaxing night away from the everyday stress and with comedians that know how to read people and make sure everyone has a good time.

The atmosphere is very enjoyable, staff are very friendly and the acts are always hilarious. Food is okay for the cost but it is majority worth it just for the great acts.

It's great to take some time away from the seriousness found most places, and it made for a really fun night.

The comedy club is nestled in a historic building directly opposite the larger performance complex. It's not much to look at inside, but definitely brings a fitting relaxed vibe.

I found the staff all to be very friendly, and the acts were tasteful and hilarious. Brilliant!

We have so much fun. You can't get better value for money. We always have the dinner and show package. By the time we get home we are already planning our next trip. The comedians are constantly changing so each time is a different show.
