Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

The headliner - along with the other 2 comedians - was great! So funny! The Improv is a very comfortable and convenient venue, surrounded by many great restaurants. A nice night out!!!

I love Al Madrigal. He was so hilarous. He's comedy about family and live in general was so amusing.I had never heard of him before but now I'm a true fan after seeing him at the Improv.
