There are lots of places to eat within walking distance. It is pretty busy in the evening, especially when there are other events/shows and sports events on the same night as an Improv show. Plan ahead for long waits to dine and packed parking lots. In other words, get there early.

The weather was clear, brisk winter night. . I wore a short sleeved shirt. My past experience with this venue is that it gets stuffy. Layering is best. I had a thicker winter coat that I placed over my lap and was quite comfortable the entire show. .

Not funny. Seemed like he used the audience as a therapy group for gay issues.

Description

Thai Rivera has toured with some of the most respected names in stand up comedy, including Jo Koy and Russell Peters. His unique blend of sarcasm, edge, and charm can be seen on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and the film One Night Stand Up

Born in Phoenix, Arizona, Thai Rivera was raised in the smaller, more rural town of Casa Grande, Arizona. When he was 19, he moved to Las Vegas where he lived the true Las Vegas party lifestyle. Tired of the fast pace of Vegas, he moved back to Phoenix and settled into a life of boring office work. He quickly tired of the life as a cubicle dweller, but when he found his way to the local comedy stage, he knew he’d never be bored again. 

After becoming a finalist in a local comedy contest, he knew it was time to move to a city where he could hone his act. He quickly moved to L.A. where he has become a favorite with audiences, bookers, and his fellow comics.
