$20/person. Plus two drinks. 1.5 to 2 hours of really good comedy. Real cost is $35 it $40 per, but still worth it completely.

You're probably reading this review in between two others stating how ludicrous the price of the drinks are and yes, they are expensive. However. The price of the ticket is $20, and for two hours of great entertainment that is great value. To get a...More

I was thinking it would be cheesy and corny.. Not at all they had a great line up. Drinks were weak but hey some bartenders cant help cheap bosses. All and all entertainment was great service was okay, drinks sucked.

We enjoyed the comedians at the comic strip live! They were many of them and most of them were hilarious. Don't go hungry and be careful about your cocktails. Mine seemed very weak for the money. To be fair, sometimes it's hard to tell. The...More

If you are looking for a true comedy place, this is it. However it's not cheap. Bring cash only to pay for the tickets $20/person. Then be prepared for a $20 drink minimum (not hard to meet with the drink prices)! All in all a...More

The comedians were funny. Interestingly, that's not always the case for a comedy club. I purchased my tickets on groupon so I got my money's worth. I had a good time. I have been there before and I will go back.
