Parking at the Spectrum was a nightmare. Allow extra time to find a space.

There are a ton of restaurant options in the immediate area. The Improv is connected to Umami Burger, so the food is pretty good. Nachos were bomb.

Patton is always hilarious. The performance was awesome - he even admitted to trying out new material on us (the performance was on a Monday), but you couldn't even tell - he was (as always) fantastico!!

It was a great evening. Patton was working out some new material and let the audience in on that. There was no warm up act(s) before him, so people should not be expecting too much over a 1 hr 10 min show.

Patton Oswalt is hilarious, I've seen him twice and he was great both times. The Improv was packed and the seats aren't all that comfortable but we didn't have any problems seeing the stage. The food is only okay and overpriced but you shouldn't...continued
