Saw On the Spot and it was very very funny. Even with the small audience we had I was entertained and had more than a few laughs.

First time at the Bovine theatre. What a great time! None stop laughing for the entire show. Nice small theatre. Great location, right off 16th street mall. No liquor service, but lots of places to go nearby. Great time. Lots of different shows.

The improv was quite good - we went on a Thursday for their prime time show. It is a very small venue and a bit hot at times but the show was very entertaining and well worth the reasonable ticket prices.More
