My girlfriend and I stopped in here on a Friday night (only 10 dollars a ticket!) for a 7:30 showing. Been to comedy clubs in the past and this one was set up just like the rest of them. Don't pay the extra five dollars for the "better" seats. No reason as it is a very small venue. There is... More

Loved the atmosphere and the staff. We reserved our tix beforehand to get a discount. We were seated right up front (even while having only a minute to spare before showtime). The comics were pretty funny...and the specialty drinks were great. It was the perfect cherry topper of our trip.

This is a pretty cool venue. They can cram a lot of people in there. We bought tickets in advance and were seated right in front of the stage. I mean like directly against it, a few feet from the performers. This may have been a bit too close, but no big deal. So one of the waitresses serving the... More

There was a mix up at the door. The door man thought I did not have tickets purchased whatsoever. Please buy and arrive at the venue early for the comedian of your choice so that this doesn't happen to you. The club owner/manager saved the day for me otherwise I would have not been allowed in despite my ticket in... More

We have been to the comedy cafe numerous times.....normally all the acts are hilarious! During our last visit, this was not the case....a bunch of duds. Great service.

We were not from the area and just drove to Milwaukee to get away for day. We did not have tickets to show however went to club hours before show started to see if we could get some. Although it was sold out they said to check back and they would see what they could do. They not only got... More

Walked from dinner at Sanford restaurant for the 8:00 show. Seating was fine, wine was good and the comics were funny. We have been here a few times and have never been disappointed.

Lots of laughs...a good time. One of the comedians was especially funny and parts of her routine were hilarious. The club is small, and it was very crowded but we weren't totally cramped. The cover is reasonable but the drinks are expensive (two drink minimum).
