I was so disappointed. I've been to the Second City in Las Vegas and laughed until my stomach hurts and thought it was great. Sadly the local perfomance I attended was... continued

Fun little stage performance. The show was just okay. One guy in particular stood out, but the rest of the comedians were just supplemental. The check in staff seemed... continued

The venue is through a metal door and upstairs, but once up there the theatre is small and intimate. The show was really funny. There was a lot of comedy for a good price! I recommend; money well spent for entertainment and laughter.

everyone (it seemed) was laughing and I was like WHY IS EVERYONE LAUGHING?!!! Was SO glad when it was over. Turned me off to Second City. Groundlings has been much much better in my experience so far.

It was my first time going to this venue, and I almost missed the entrance walking down the street. The venue seems almost hidden behind metal doors.

I didn't know... continued

So great so worth it! $7.50 gets you an hour of improv that overall was so hillarious, my face hurt from laughing so much! Highly recommend. Especially the alumni improvers are great!!!!

The show was short (1 hour) and felt like a work in progress. Some good laughs, go with a friend so you can keep laughing afterward.

"Undateable" sketch was clever and funny. SC actors are creative and spot-on with the characters they develop.

Funny at times. Slow start, but the end was really funny, especially the improv part. The actors are very talented and witty.

It is completely unfair to compare the shows at The Second City L.A. to traditional revue shows seen in Chicago, Las Vegas, Detroit or Toronto. The shows at The Second... continued

We had a great time! The 5 performers were terrific comedic talents. Some of the sketches made us laugh so hard that we cried. We would highly recommend this show.

If you want to see some very talented performers doing what they do best, then go and see Mr Johnson! Extremely sharp and witty Improv that will keep you laughing. Go and see them!

Entertaining and funny for a Monday night. It is an intimate theatre, which seats about about 30 to 35 people. I would definitely go again.

for $5 you could not beat this. It was worth $50 a ticket easily. Make sure you bring Depends as you might pee yourself from laughing so hard

I drove out from Phx to see FRANKENMAT, but instead was treated to a very mediocre performance of some people who filled in for them. Not cool at all! I would like a refund or 2

I enjoyed the show. I think the actors did a good job. It was done in the style of a musical, so there was regular improv and musical improv. I would recommend the show to a friend for a nice evening out.
