Anniversary night out. Venue soooo not what we expected. Very small, 10 or so comedians, some much funnier than others. After cover, minimum food/drink purchases, automatic 18% gratuity, tip... a couple will spend just shy of $100. Great date night spot - Worth every penny!

Had a free night without our child so we looked up this place. Small, fun spot that was worth going to. 6/10 of the comedians were funny and the bad ones didn't stay on stage long. Drinks were reasonably priced (they require 2 items per...More

Probably closer to a 3.5 star, but I decided to round down. There were about 10 comedians ranging from local startups to more seasoned veterans, which meant some were funny and some were very clearly just starting their comedy career. That being said, it was...More

I think it's just Fri/Sat nights. By the way, if you don't have a reservation (we didn't) they sit you right at the foot of the stage... apparently as a punishment, best seat in the room though lol
