We found this show online and are so glad we did. Good Stand up is hard to find. The comedians were good to the audience and jokes were relevant and funny. The ticket price was appropriate and will return next time we are in SF

This is the type of places you'll tell all your friends about. An absolutely great atmosphere, super funny comedians and a small and cozy theater. Feels like home. Don't think twice and do it!

We were really impressed by these local comedians. I think there were 6 different comedians/acts, and we enjoyed all except one. The audience all laughed all night.

Buying tickets in advance online is the sure-fire way to get seats to the show. The theater is a one-minute walk from Sir Francis Drake Hotel.
