My friends and I had a blast. The comedy was on point and the lady pulled from the audience was a great sport. The pimp outfits were hilarious and all three comedians demonstrated quick wit and great timing. I wish the show was longer. It lasted...continued

The actors are entertaining. The show are very creative and well played out. The actors made you feel like they are there to entertain you. The show was cute but I did not laugh as much my date. But overall, the show gets 4 out of 5 stars.

The Pimprov part of the show was really funny! The opening, however, which was like half an hour of stand-up, was pretty weak. I get that all comics have to start somewhere but it's still awkward to have to sit through. Overall, I had a great...continued

The Pimps were as funny this time as they were when I last saw them! Get to the theater early/on-time, though, if you're in a group and want to be sure to sit together. Seats filled up fast in this intimate space.

This show is hilarious and I highly recommend it to everyone. There is some audience involvement, so if you go, bring your sense of adventure. The BYOB is great and the show can't be beat.

It was a different event for me, so I decided to give it a chance. The opening act was okay; only partly humorous. Pimprov was an interesting concept. The opening introductions were absolutely hilarious and most of their routine was funny. I...continued

It was not as interactive as I expected. The warm up group attempted to stretch out on subjects that they could not find the right funnybone cues for. More lively music would help. The Pimps were funnier, I enjoyed how they called my husband...continued

Look what blew into the Windy City---Pimprov. This group is definitely not politcially correct, but simply hilarious. It gives audience members an opportunity to unwind and enjoy many laughs. They were truly engaging and the audience...continued

the comedians were not funny in the beginning, then when the pimps came out tht's when it began to get funny, it was worth the $7.50 I PAID.

The first part of an improv act was done (I assume) by another improv group which performs in the same theater perhaps to advertise their show, it was "run of the mill" typical improv, but it was funny. Out of the 6 actors, 5 were very funny and...continued

The improv was just ok, the characters were not very good at it.

The Pimprov show was excellent! The opening act by Chicago Transit Minorities was funny. I also liked seeing Greg Hollimon as the MC for the evening. Fun times!

The venue is very intimate to say the least. You can definitely bring drinks as it was a lot of that going on. The first improv group threw us off because I expected pimps..but the pimps arrived in the second scene. And they were hilarious. The...continued
