Fabulous location and great comics. There was a magician that started the show and then 2 comedians performed. Both were great and even the host was wonderful! There was a live band before the show also.

The venue is great, and they tried really hard... but man the comedian was the pits. He apparently does a lot of work on Carnival Cruises, and we really felt like it showed. His material was terribly dated. He made a Tiger Woods reference and...continued

We are trying to do one new thing every week. The show was enjoyable. Nothing major, but very enjoyable. If you don't expect nirvana you will be happy you did it.

Evans tried too hard -- and I found his sex humor offensive to women.

Venue is great and staff are really nice, but the performances were pretty sad. The magician flubbed several tricks and was overall pretty campy. The comedian was good, but with such a small crowd, it was a bit of a drain on his act.

Very nice venue with welcoming staff. Would love to see more comedians as well as other entertainment in this theatre. The first comic was really quite good. His style was subtle, at the same time very basic and yet quite intellectual. I was...continued

It started with a magic show from someone who was not a real magician. It went downhill from there with no real talent to speak of. I wouldn't attend this event again.

The location was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful (gave great dinner suggestions). Offered valet - which was very helpful.

The comedy itself was not that great - but loved the location and staff.

The recently renovated Theater in Old Town Alexandria is lovely, and so we looked forward to the show on Friday night and to supporting a local venue. There was a total of 10 people in the audience. The show felt like amateur hour. The comedian...continued

The venue itself is very nice and clean, right on King Street in Old Town Alexandria. Parking is easy with a parking deck maybe two blocks away. This was definitely the most interesting comedy show I have ever been to. It started with the host who...continued
