We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.

Great show, but 75% of the jokes were from the show he did at the Hideout over a year ago. I get it that he's more famous now but that's no reason to be lazy. I payed $5 to see him at The Hideout and $17 to see him do the same material again...continued
