We had a great evening at the Improv, Tom Papa was super funny. We had beer & appetizers which were good. The service was a little slow, they could use a few more servers.

I took my adult children to the club (as I have done before); however, the last visit was very disturbing in that the primary comedian talked at length in very crude terms about relatively " kinky" sexual practices. (When I said what, Tripadviser would not...More

We had the opportunity to see a live improv show recently in DC. I do not remember the name of the comedian who appreared first but she was pretty humerous as an opening act before Arsenio. We liked the show and seeing the ELECTION had...More
