The weather was chilly. I wore comfortable clothes, appropriate for the weather..

As this is a General Admission show, you will want to show up early if you want to sit close - however, there really isn't a bad seat in the house!

saw it on a Thursday night. crowd was pretty sparse and low energy. Amy is not really for suburbanites on a weeknight. i had fun but one Colombian dude did not. (the concept of live stand up was lost on him).

Amy is hilarious! She put on a great show full of lots of laughter!

The blonde girl working the ticket booth obviously doesn't like her job! The staff at the Improv didn't quite fit the "fun" atmosphere one might expect at a comedy club....continued
