The only thing I have not liked about them is the food. I wait over an hour and then have to enquire about it. This has happened the last two times I visited.

I often visit the Cleveland Improv but this was my first time purchasing the deal through Groupon. Everything was very smooth, there were no limitations on which appetizers we could choose. The only term, which was to be expected, was that we couldn't redeem our voucher on the night of a special event. But the local comedians are always just as funny!

From Our Editors

The first Improv comedy club had virtually nothing to do with comedy. Broadway producer Budd Friedman founded the now legendary franchise in 1963 as an intimate spot where performers could eat, drink coffee, and sing along to piano ditties after their shows. Soon after, the club's first comedian, Dave Astor, tried out some new material on a whim. The stand-up set was a hit and led to the venue's eventual transformation into a full-blown comedy club. New York's hottest comedians would do nearly anything to be featured on the Improv stage; for instance, it's rumored that Lily Tomlin hijacked a parked limousine in order to make a stunning entrance when first meeting Budd.

Since 1989, Cleveland Improv has lived up to the lofty reputation of its parent club by showcasing comedic heavyweights such as Drew Carey, Jim Breuer, and Dave Chappelle. A diverse calendar draws instantly recognizable comics from the airwaves of Showtime, the E! channel, and Comedy Central—including Tommy Davidson, Godfrey, and Christina Pazsitzky—but it also opens the stage to promising up-and-comers such as "Uncle" Larry Reeb, Craig Doyle, and Cleveland's own Mike Polk Jr. Meanwhile, the menu surprises audiences with gourmet flavors including wings doused in blueberry-habañero sauce and bleu cheese and applewood bacon-topped burgers.
