This is, without doubt, the very best way to spend a Thursday evening in LA. I'm a regular, so I'm biased...but I think this show is sublime, and wouldn't miss it for the world.

Whenever friends come in from out of town, I take them to a Groundlings show. It is a must! "Cooking With Gas" is my personal favorite as it's all improv and it usually features celebrity guest stars among an already HILARIOUS cast. If you like...continued

I had a friend in from out of town. I had never been before either so I thought it would be a great experience. We really enjoyed ourselves. The show was hilarious. It was really cool to see Maya Rudolph because I loved her when she was on SNL....continued

Great show where the actors get up and do various skits based on suggestions from the audience. Not a lot of props, but great and witty actors/actresses.

My [first time at the Groundlings] friend had a sore jaw because she hadn't laughed that hard in so long! It's still my favorite way to spend a Thursday night.

Excellent as always. A bit more spotty than usual but still 100% enjoyable and fun. Bring a sweater, just in case you get cold.

The Thursday night show at the Groundlings is always great!! This was my second time attending - both times with my 20-year-old son. And we both enjoyed it a lot!!! Admittedly, the average age of the audience is 20-35, but even those of us in our...continued

Always a ton of laughs with an ever-changing cast. The guest star couldn't make it and it was still a wonderful night. We love the all improv format on Thurs. night and have been a number of times.

Extremely talented improv group!

Laughed all the way through the show.

How could it be better? A printed list of actors with bios/credits.
Would love to know the last names of Mike and Mindy, as well as the name of the big African-American.

Another funny night from The Groundlings. Michael McDonald (Stuart from Mad TV) and Mindy Sterling (Frau Farbissina from Austin Powers) really stole the show. For the price of a ticket to The Groundlings shows on Goldstar, you really can't beat...continued

Who doesn't love a great night of improv? Well, those that don't haven't had the pleasure of attending a show with the Groundlings! They are a huge part of the fabric of comedy and the epitome of funny in Los Angeles, hands down. The crowd is...continued

Improv can be brilliant, but inconsistent. The first act had quite a few struggles, but the second act, a long form improv, was achingly funny. Two celebrities were part of the evening as well. Very recommended.
