Fun and engaging--it's always great to watch live theater. Really appreciate the actors and their gifts.

Good cast, relaxed atmosphere, no pressure to buy food or drink but it's there if you want to. Will be back for more shows.

I loved the way they set up the storyline then finished it off with hilarity. It was fantastic. Get there at 7:30 so you can get good seats.

I only gave it 4 stars, not 5, comparing it to some kind of grand production but otherwise, for the format of improve and what it was I say 5 stars. My husband and I are in our sixties and consider it adventuresome to try something new and loved...continued

I went to the Broadway show. It was pretty fun. The comedians were clever and funny and sang well. There were a few songs where they seemed to get a little lost in where they were going, but for the most part it worked. The theater itself was...continued

I'd been before and decided to take my boyfriend. We both enjoyed the show. The Improv actors are very talented and fully engage the audience. I would recommend this show to anyone seeking a pleasant, light-hearted evening of fun.

I've been to many BATS shows, and this was the best yet. Great fast-paced fun. Even the volunteers from the audience were good.

If you're looking for professional comedians delivering their best material ... well, this ain't it. Still, there were a few good laughs, and it was a pleasant night out. Ample convenient parking and reasonably priced.

It was my first Bats performance and it was fantastic! The performers did an amazing job and it was difficult to believe that it was improv. They were so skilled. Definitely will be going back. Parking in the first lot you enter makes the most...continued

Loved it! lots of laughs and amazement at the cast's creativity. Will definitely go again; no 2 shows are ever the same, with improv.

My husband, 14 year old son and I went to the BATS improv show on a recent Friday night. I really enjoyed it and thought, with the gold star discount, it was a great way to spend the evening. Our son loved it too and the content was fine for a...continued

Our second peformance of Theater Sports and not nearly as fun/funny as the first. Our experience is Comedy Sports in Chicago - years of attending and last week's Theater Sports was very funny. This just OK

Some skits are much better than others, but it's worth going. Some are very good.

This was my first time seeing an improv comedy. Overall performance was fine. They were all great actors and actresses. Zoe was especially good at speaking different accents. I enjoyed it, but it was definitely not as funny as the stand-up comedy...continued

Venue was good but very difficult trip from the East Bay, Show was occasionally funny and imaginative. Several awkward struggling interludes trying to make the story work. All in all I would probably try it again. Staff was very cordial.

very amateurish. unrehearsed, surprised that it was presented. Didn't like the interruption from the director frequently, which broke the flow. Very surprised, because I studied with BATS a few years ago. The actors, on their own seemed alented,...continued

We are fairly new to SF and have attended theater sports in Chicago and loved it. Just discovered it here and will be coming often to this event. Some reviewers indicated it was not for children and I think it depends on the age. I would...continued
