Hey this guy is funny!! The guy that opened first was vulgar and I didn't laugh at his crass jokes. Decent finger food. Chicken quesadillas were good. Typical 2 drink minimum. Go see Joe Machi if he returns

Came here to see Joey Diaz and Kevin Smith on two separate occasions. Wow this is a place that requires two items per person, it certainly feels better than most other comedy clubs that we've been to. The brownie sundae is surprisingly very good, and...More

Our comic, Dav, was very funny. Two item minimum but for a beer and chips it was $17. So not expensive and the food was decent. Place is in the basement, which most comedy clubs are...it could have had more air circulating as the place...More

The worse management I've ever come across! Went there to see Tony rock who was great from the part that I was able to see. However, my cousin had asked for management because the waitress had her waiting for 30 minutes for a drink that...More
