Had a friend visiting from out of town for the weekend, and this was a great way to end his trip. Got the tix from Goldstar for about 1/2 price, too!

The stand-up was very funny! Comedians only had about 10 mins, but I was consistently...continued

I like the Punch Line. It is a really nice club. I however wished there were more female comedians. There were only two and none of my orientation. Single and straight. Oh well!

Like any comic show, you have your funny comics and your dry comics. It was fun overall.

This is one of the best deals on goldstar. Super cheap show. They hand pick the best of the local comedians that are in town that week. Its a large line up so even if you dont like some of them they do short sets and you get to see lots of...continued

Though this was my first comedy showcase (meaning just 5-10 min per comedian - not big names either), the 3 stars was my decision because I like to have uncontrollable laughter when I go to a comedy show, and this was not the case.

I will say...continued

An unpredictable range of mostly SF talent; and beyond, given who's in town. You can count on the Showcase to launch your workweek with laughter. This night, there was a bigger balance of talent cross spectrum of gender, age; smart, thoughtful...continued

Hit and miss with comic, at least there're several. But in general good seating, service and ambiance.

I haven't laughed that much in a while. Really nice place dim red lights so each table has their privacy. The Hummus dip was amazing!
And most of the comedians where hilarious!

I used to go to the SF Comedy Showcase pretty frequently, and always had a great time. I went last night and was glad to see that the line-up was almost entirely new, so I looked forward to new material, too. I got that, but it just wasn't that...continued

I went to the Comedy Showcase for the third time last night and, as always, it's a lot of fun. My only complaint? There are a handful of regular comics who have been on stage each time I've gone (sometime last fall, in April, and in August) and...continued

It was a 10-12 comedians line up with 5-6 minutes for each comedian. 1/3 was good, 2/3 was not so good. Punchline was nice.

It's great to see some local comedy talent. The Punchline never disappoints.

Small place. Staff was friendly, good service.

Happened to go on a night when the world series was on, so the crowd was small.

About 8 comedians on about 10 minutes a piece. This keeps it moving and you get their best material.

Nice...continued

This was a fantastic production! Every performer was hilarious, and the atmosphere of the club is fantastic. You will be seated at a table with people you don't know, but it's not awkward or anything. They serve drinks and food - don't expect a...continued

This was my second time attending the showcase at Punch Line and I really enjoyed myself. There are very few duds in the line-up and, even when there are, the format of the showcase only keeps them on stage for ten minutes and then it's on to the...continued

This was my first Comedy Showcase and it was fun. About 15 or so comedians did about 5 minutes each. Some were very good, some not so great, but there were still plenty of laughs. The drinks are pretty expensive, so even with comp tickets it...continued
