This review has two parts:
1) Performance: The comedy line-up was good; all solid performers with a little bit of something for everyone. The headliner did not disappoint.
2) Venue: If you're on a budget this is NOT the place to go. Beware that they have a two item minimum once you're in the theatre area, so even though the tickets are $10 or $14 dollars, you pay at least another $20 once you're inside the theatre. I understand they need to survive as a business but it was a little over the top (ex. if you order a drink at the bar, it doesn't count towards your two item minimum in the theatre).
Bottom line, the comedy acts ranged from B- to A. If you don't mind a pricey venue, you'll have a great time.
