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)

Robert schimmel is such a professional. He was soo funny. He didn't have to pick on the audience in order to be funny. The opening acts were also good. I want to see him again.

He was entertaining. Not gut wrenching laughter, but more of a story telling approach.

this was a fun experience. Both Lee (the opening act) and Schimmel (headliner) were hillarious. I didn't enjoy the degrading sexist jokes that Schimmel threw in every once in awhile. But luckily I got a great price from goldstar, so i shrugged...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Watch a video clip of Robert Schimmel performing comedy.


Truly one of the funniest and most well respected comics in the nation, Robert Schimmel has gained popularity from his willingness to delve into the most intimate of topics, from sex to surviving cancer. In addition to releasing a series of best selling comedy CDs, Schimmel has made multiple TV and film appearances, including a starring role in the film Scary Movie 2 and appearances on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, The Howard Stern Show and The Simpsons.

When asked about his sexually explicit material, Schimmel says, “I deal with a taboo subject. I talk about sex. I start with a room full of strangers and a taboo topic and end up with a group of laughing, intimate human beings. They realize that no matter who we are, we all share a common denominator: sex. And they all find humor in their sexuality.”
