For the cost, this is a great event. Overall, it's a good event. It personally doesn't bother me, but be prepared that this is a tiny venue and very homespun. I very much appreciate that it's a collective group of improv artists who are just trying to share their love and talent with everyone. You're really there for the words.
The first group wasn't very funny. I wanted to love them because I find their name hysterical -- Fart City. The topic thrown out by the audience was "goulashes," which they never even addressed. They just talked about rain, but rain wasn't the topic. Aside from that, it just wasn't funny. I hope it was an off night for them.
Roboctopus was distinctively better than the first group. They definitely had my friends and I laughing. The topic was babies balls, and that started off their skit hysterically discussion circumcisions. We really liked them and definitely would like to see them again.
The last group was Cyclops Baby, and it was obvious why they were the closers. There was barely a second that they were performing that we weren't laughing. The situation thrown out was Cirque du Soleil at McDonald's, which ended up being hysterical. Their "interpretive" acting was just as funny as their verbal discourse. They were fantastic, and I look forward to seeing them again!
Small sidenote -- the bathroom is cool as hell. The walls are wallpapered with the pages out of plays and musicals. It's very creative and super cool.
Overall, the experience was definitely worth it and funny. It's easy to get to from public transportation, and it's BYOB! We didn't know that before hand but wish we had!
