I've watched comics perform at various Improv locations in numerous cities but this visit marks my first time physically attending a show. Sunday night's headliner was Guy Torry, a funny comedian whom I've enjoyed watching for years now. Ms. Pretty Ricki and another guy (whose...More

I've seen some great comedians preform here. I like that it is a smaller venue. It gives a more intimate experience. The food and drink is pricy but not bad. Portions are decent and staff is typically really friendly and on point. Skip desserts though...the...More

This is a first rate comedy club right there in downtown San Jose. The pluses are that they get first rate comics at pretty reasonable ticket prices. And the seating is excellent wherever you sit. If you are not up close downstairs, the balcony affords...More

The host, warm up act and headliner were all terrible. The food was mediocre while the service was pretty good as well as the seating and venue. Too bad the comics were a bust.

We went to Improv on an odd Thursday night and had a great time. Lots of locals visit here as well and that is reflected in the presenter lineup. The venue itself is beautiful, Minskoff-like and even intimate. Restaurant and drink service inside is friendly...More

Good place to go for a a night out in downtown San Jose. Overall service and atmosphere is good. Make sure to pick a good performer though as that's what ultimately makes or breaks the fun!
