Good comedy, bad food.

We have seen several comedians over the years and have not been disappointed by their performances. Every seat we have had has a clear view of the stage and the sound system is... read more

First time here and it's just an average club. Our seats were to the side so our view was not that great. Service for drinks was efficient even with the place being packed. We were there for Faizon Love who was funny, the opener seemed to be trying to hard to be funny and the second comic was good. I... More

Roomy compared to our Comedy Club at home. Nice Bar to get a drink while waiting on show. Wait staff did a good job.

My husband and I frequent the Improv. They have a nice variety of comedians, cocktails and food. While there is a variety of food, it isn't the best tasting food in the city. I'd recommend dinner before or after your show on the West Bank of the flats. The space is somewhat tight, so plan to get cozy with your... More

RACIAL PROFILING AT ITS FINEST (At a venue that survives off of Black dollars)! I went to this club on 4/28/2016 with 3 friends. I had to leave the venue early because of another engagement (while my 3 friends remained). On the way out of the venue, I was chased down by a worker and accused of walking out without... More

My guy and I were here in March 2015 to see Carlos Mencia's comedy act. We got a deal for tickets on Group-on. This venue is small inside and the Ticket box location isn't in the best spot when there's mostly standing room only if you get there early near the lobby bar. The customer service of the staff could... More

Had dinner and a show.. The food was good, not excellent but very good.. The waiters were not the friendliest people but they got their job done. Would go back for another show for sure..

Went with my husband for a Friday night date. Sat right in front of the stage and had dinner reservations. Salad was out of a bad, steak was thin and not seasoned well, potatoes were baked. Average, BUT the staff was more than accommodating and courteous. Really great MC

We have seen several comedians over the years and have not been disappointed by their performances. Every seat we have had has a clear view of the stage and the sound system is good.
