Parking was impossible for anyone who had to drive a car to this event, even for a Sunday performance at 7 pm. I tried for 30 min to find a space. Nothing was available. There was not even an expensive commercial lot nearby. I eventually gave...continued

Don't bother getting there early. We stood in a hallway until just after the 9pm start time. The show itself did not start until almost 9:30. Most of the comedians were very funny. It started well, then there was a bit of a lull until an engineer...continued

The show itself was pretty good ...if this is going to be a on going venue...they need to start on time and not have people standing outside when they tell you to arrive 15 minutes before show time to get your will call tickets. I wait 30 min...continued

About a dozen comedians performed over a 2 hour period, including one well-known local. I thought at least 2/3 of them were funny, which is much more than one would normally expect for this type of revue. I'm not sure it's possible to get more...continued

This is the 4th or 5th time I've been to the Comedy Festival, so I know that some of the comics will be funny, others not so much, but for the price, it's a great value. I laughed a lot. 12 comics compete on any given night, following a short...continued

They had some very intelligent comedy at this show. The comedians came from all over the US. I would love to attend the finals.

Great Venue. Every act was great. Seating staff was a bit "bossy pants' as Tina Fey would say which I really didn't need but rest of evening was delightful.

Comedians were great, but the audience/staff was very rude and distracting. Several people in our section kept getting up, coming in and going out, at least 3 or 4 times during the 90 min show. I would not go there again.

In addition, the best...continued

Yes, it was a great value....the room was a bit too hot though....even a few fans would have made it more comfortable

It was good enough. Although we didn't get a full 2h of show. Each comedian had 5 minutes to impress us.

All of the 6 contestants were funny and original. Would have picked Rich Gustav and Anthony DeVito as the 2 winners, but all were good.

From entry through exit staff was helpful and friendly. The venue is of moderate size with comfortable arena type seating...bringing the crowd "together", this time to laugh...which we did plenty of. Wonderful night out for my husband and I.
