Refreshing for a big city, this is a small theater that is very personal. The comedians were good I think there were 6 differen ones. Some of the comedians were better than others but overall it was a good time. I would go again definatley.

It was a small venue run by the comedians themselves. There was no drink minimum. It was very casual. It lasted two hours with a new comic about every fifteen minutes. All but two of them were funny. There was one comedian in general that...continued

2 of the 6 comedians were hysterical, I had a laughing jag, tears were rolling down my face. 2 were funny (they had a warped sense of humor, but I understood them), and 2 were so-so. I would go again.

The event entailed 6 comedians and 4 out of the 2 were great. The setting was casual and the seating was comfortable. They also had
beer and wine available. Drinks, comfort, and laughter- what more could you ask for! This is a great place to take...continued

The last performer Duane Perkins saved the show. It was good times overall. Started out with an intimate audience of 8 and ended with about 20 people. (Take into consideration it was a rainy Sat nite though)

There atleast 10 comedians giving their performances. 4 out of 10 comedians are actually funny. There are only two females and mostly men. Karen is the most funniest female comedian I've ever met. She's quite a natural. The host, the guy with...continued

Just Awful. Not in the least bit funny. I suppose that they have different "entertainment" each time but the ones that we saw were not good at all. There were 21 people in the audience. All young except for my husband and I and our 2 friends....continued

This is the worst stand-up comedy showcase I've ever been to. The comedians (with the exception of one who's material was just ok) weren't funny at all. It was so bad that some people walked out of the theatre during the middle of it. Some people...continued

surprisingly good show...i'm sure the comedians vary from show-to-show, but this night the opening acts were decent, but the headliners were solid and made the show worth the time...

This event was so much fun. There were maybe 7 comics and almost all of them were very funny! Drinks were cheap and the staff very friendly. It was convenient for us because we live in Santa Monica.. but it's easy to combine with an evening...continued

1/2 of the comedians were moderately funny, 1/4 were hilarious and 1/4 were awful!!!!!! so i guess you could say it was a balanced show. even the sucky comedians made me laugh because they were soooo bad. it was eorth it though.

The majority of the performers were very funny. I've been to other comedy clubs and sometimes you are very lucky if 1 or 2 people are funny out of 5 or 6 who are bad.

It was really, REALLY BAD. I would not say I hated it as one of the comedians was good and a couple were funny, but what was really bad was inability of the performers to adjust to the audience in front of them, and also an attitute of some. The...continued
