Always good to hear sharp, witty commentary on current events, human foibles, and especially, relationships. Good "first date" venue.

I enjoyed this event. There was a variety of performers, and the material was different. I have gone twice, and plan to continue.

I had a really nice time for one of my first comedy shows. There were a lot of comics with relatively short sets for a full night of standup variety. I think it should be noted that there is a two drink minimum so the evening ended up being a...continued

I took my boyfriend to the Punch Line for his birthday. He's a comedian, so he's not too easy to please in the arena. Needless to say WE had a blast. The food & drinks were good. The comics were hysterical!!! Loved it loved it loved...continued

Pretty surprised that in a city as progressive as SF so many of the comics resorted to really unfunny racist and anti gay stereotypes to get laughs. The MC is just nasty, unfunny, and mean spirited.

All of the few female comics featured were much...continued

Punchline Showcase was a great evening out to see up and coming comics!! The only thing was, I wish there was a lineup list given just before the show, so If you saw someone you re3ally liked, and wanted to see them again, you could remember their...continued

the great part comedy showcases is that there so many comedians (at least 10, each doing short bits) that if you don't like one dude, wait a while and you'll find a brand of humor you like.

didn't matter so much here because my date and I...continued

This is an awesome event with a variety of comedians. This was my third time attending. My biggest complaint is that I've gone three times spaced out by at least 3 months and yet, the same comedians were doing the same material. Although I...continued

This was a great evening of comedy! I could not believe how many comics were involved! We saw about six comics before the surprise performance of Dave Chapelle! It was an interactive show with nice close seats and good drinks. Our waitress left...continued

We have been to this event twice now and have really enjoyed it both times. The talent of the comedians in the showcase runs the gamut from unpolished beginner all the way to experienced headliner.

A group of comedians performed one by one - some were okay, others were quite hilarious. Each comedian was limited to around 10 mins, the headliner a bit more time, which was nice. Overall, a great time with friends!

Don't waste your time with these amateur showcase nights. 6 of the 9 'performers' were really, really bad and the others were marginal. One was so openly hostile and was making such vile comments to a small, young woman in the audience, that she...continued

Everything was great...although they could have *maybe* (sarcasm) hired some more waitresses. Shove 300 (?) people in a room with maybe 3 waitresses? I simply don't get it. I walked up to the bar when I first got there and asked the guy behind the...continued

First time there. The venue is great, and most of the comics were good. 1 or 2 were great. BUT, the good one were brought down by having so many at a time. I know this is the idea, but I probably would not attend again unless I knew in advance...continued
