As hard as I have laughed in 20 years. I was in stitches from the moment he walked on stage until several hours after.

JB SMOOOOOOOOVE! What can I say...laughter and happiness flowed as this wonderfully adept comedian got the Sacramento crown rolling! JB is energetic and uses everything around the stage as a prop. You must see to believe. My only wahhh moment...continued

All the comedians were very funny, put on a nice show.
However, the overall customer service experience was terrible.
Wait staff was almost non existent, and took the whole show to accomplish the 2-drink minimum. Horrible service, weak drinks,...continued
