- Nobody here is a sitcom star -- yet. With a stellar reputation for searching out undiscovered talent, the no-frills Comedy Studio draws a savvy crowd of comedy connoisseurs, college students, and network scouts. It's not just setup-punch line-laugh, either; sketches and improv spice up the standup. – Frommer's
- This place is the best to see a bunch of comics and not have to spend a lot. There will be some bad and some okay comics, but there's always a few really funny guys that make it all worthwhile. – rosie7477, Citysearch
