Visiting friends in Ft Lauderdale who always line up fun activities for our stay. This included Laffing Matterz. First the food was top notch and absolutely nothing to complain about (and we are very critical of restaurants). What was fun is the interaction with the...More

Two years ago, my husband and I took our grown children and spouses to the show and it was a great evening full of laughter. This year, as the waitress/performer served us, she warned that it was 'racey'. My description is 'raunchy' and not very...More

They start the show with a song saying they will ridicule many including gays, blacks, liberals, conservatives, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, etc. . . The truth becomes clear early on the only ones they scorn are republicans and Christians in general, the republican leaders individually and...More

Dinner theatre as it should be. The waiters are also performers. Good food (vegetarian pasta was great, my husband was less thrilled with the lamb) Comedy is topical and spares no group - so don't go if you have no sense of humor. Be prepared...More

Highly recommend. This musical dinner comedy was very well done. The beef tenderloin choice for dinner was excellent, just go ready with additional cash to add appetizer, wine, and/or desert, but prizes were reasonable. Someone at our table liked the salmon; other didn't like the...More
