This show could have been more polished but overall fun afternoon. I live in Chicago, but this probably would not be as funny for people who don't know the city.

I was hoping for a lot of city comedy regarding the ins and outs of our fair city. Instead I left at intermission. Slow moving, not funny. If you don't live here, you won't get any of it. And even getting it, "it" was not funny.

We go to see plays and shows almost every weekend.
This was a must see for our list of friends who "understand" Chicago.
We sat next to a couple from NY...Brooklyn actually. They kept asking us to explain why Green Bay was booed, and Macys not...continued

Some clever skits... The actors were great, especially the woman who was running for the Chicago city council.

Very funny show. The actors are really quick and witty in the improv segments. Writing is very clever. My companion saw the show before and said it was updated and completely different.

This show was hysterical, we all laughed a lot and we weren't even drinking that much! Really funny stuff if you are from Chicago you will love it. The Up Comedy Club is a comfortable setting and there is not a bad seat in the house. Go see it!

We laughed a bit, but where a little disappointed. Venue was nice, but parking was $19 with the validation.

First time there. Attended an afternoon show. Performances were very polished. Imrov portion was well done. I will return because of the Gold Star pricing.

It was a great show - although a few of the pieces seemed a bit slow moving and not as funny. Also, I had seen a show on the main stage last year and some of the material was incorporated into this show - repeat.
Overall the comedians were...continued

Wow. The improv here was amazing. The cast was smart and engaging with the audience. They even did at least 2 encore sets. I wish I could have stayed for more. I laughed the entire time!

My next visit to Chicago will include UP for sure! ...continued

A bit uneven but skits were generally funny and topical. Improvisational sketches were taken from audience suggestions but less improv than set sketches (a good thing). Likable cast. If you know something about Chicago it helps as far as...continued

Script was lame. Acting was fair. I had seen Second City ETC 1 week before this and it was very funny. This show didn't get funny until the second half. If you're not from Chicago, you will not get most of the jokes in the first half. Very...continued

Very talented comedians. As with most comedy shows, some skits didn't work as well as others, but overall very entertaining!
