How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
There were twelve comedians show cased in a contest for the best comedian to head to San Francisco. My friends and I would have enjoyed the show more if the comedians would have cleaned up their acts. Thank heavens not all of the comedians used foul language and sexual references and gestures. Four of the acts were clean and were terrific. The winner, Jason, was the best and reminded me of a white Bill Cosby. He was terrific with down home family humor we could relate to. I would give him a 5 star and would loved to see him again. Other acts varied with the clean acts (3) in the 4 star rate. The lone and only woman comedian was terrible and down right bad with her sexual gestures and mouth (no star). Other acts varied from 1 to 3 stars as their content was not family friendly, in bad taste using potty language, sexual references, gestures, etc. The Australian was good up to a point and then got carried away with his gay jokes going a little to far in his descriptions, etc.- give him a 3 star. Twins were good and basically clean, so they get a 4 star although they did get a bit borderline. Hard to judge this whole showcase with a particular star as all the acts were individuals. MC most of the time had a potty mouth. I would give the whole showcase a 3 star review. Don't know if I will go back. Would like to bring friends to see the clean family friendly acts, but am afraid they would have to sit through the foul mouth acts. Let me know when there is a family friendly comedy show and I will be there. The place is great, the food and drinks are reasonable and very good. The service and staff are friendly and helpful. As far as the facilities go, I would give them 5 stars.

Help others enjoy a great night out
