Very good comedy show ! All comedians were great, and the show host comedian was hysterical and very engaging with the audience. I didn’t give it five stars because I didn’t quite understand their policy on BYOB. I brought in a Diet Pepsi, and the manager seemed annoyed. He said “normally we would charge you for bringing in a drink, but this time go ahead”. That really rubbed me the wrong way. Should we bring our own, or do you want us to buy it there???

First time going to Improv Playhouse and was very impressed! There were 5 stand up comedians, all were funny, not omg funny but ok funny but one was hysterical, very monotone smaller man, just hysterical. The fact that I had a groupon made it such a worthwhile experience plus never knew this place even existed. This will not be the last time I got there!
