You can park in the garage (next to Ralph's) which is free. It's @ a quarter of a mile (5 min walk) to the theatre from there. lots of places to eat in the nearby vicinity so you can grab dinner beforehand (food at Improv isn't the greatest)

More Information


You may not think a former cop would have much of a sense of humor, well you need to meet a former police officer from Houston that does. While moonlighting as a security officer Raibon wandered into a comedy club. He later formed a partnership with Rushion McDonald, the current manager of Steve Harvey and along with J. Anthony Brown created the Apollo Theatre of the Southwest, “The Hip-Hop Comedy Stop”, where the birthplace of Destiny’s Child took place on amateur night in the early 90’s.

Later, after performing in Dave Rabe’s well-known play, “Streamers”, Raibon realized he had the chops for acting, left Houston in 1995—pursued stand-up comedy and acting. Raibon has made appearances on such television shows as, “Just Shoot me”, “Six Feet Under”, “The District”, “Without A Trace”, “NYPD Blue”, “Punk’d”, a recurring guest star role on the hit series, “The Shield” several commercials including a national State Farm Insurance spot. Raibon can also be seen in a Brian DePalma film, “The Black Dahlia” in the spring of 2006.

Currently, developing a new semi-scripted series for television called “Paradise Drive” and touring with D.L. Hughley on the stand-up circuit. Raibon is looking to break out as a national headliner as his acting skills and comedic timing head on a talent loaded collision course.
