2 item policy not strictly enforced which is great. Seating arrangement is well thought out so the stage view is good from any angle.

Try to be there at least 1 hr earlier to: 1. Nab good parking across the street ($6/hr, they take CC & cash) 2. Be one of the first ones in line to get in, so you can get good seats.

There are several parking lots near the San Jose Improv. Street parking is available if you can find it. The Improv does not validate for parking.

There are lots of places to eat within walking distance. It is pretty busy in the evening, especially when there are other events/shows and sports events on the same night as an Improv show. Plan ahead for long waits to dine and packed parking lots. In other words, get there early.

The weather was clear, brisk winter night. . I wore a short sleeved shirt. My past experience with this venue is that it gets stuffy. Layering is best. I had a thicker winter coat that I placed over my lap and was quite comfortable the entire show. .

This was my first time at this venue. I didn't realize it was a two tier seating. The floor seemed reserved for Dinner and show then there is the balcony, which is where we sat. Viewing is still good. However with first come first seat I would have arrived even earlier. We had to wait in the extremely long line for about 45 min. Overall it's a nice venue.
