Great place to unwind and forget about life - plenty of laughter! Must buy 2 drinks with the purchase of your ticket...however they do serve food, drinks and dessert. I would recommend eating there....or at least trying it. The desserts looked yummy!

My first visit to McCurdy's and wont be my last. The Theatre is well run and the food and drinks are reasonably priced. The three comics were all very original and funny. A must do venue.

McCurdy's downtown location has all the intimacy of the old location but features a far larger food and beer selection than the old one. The "bonus" of McCurdy's intro's and a generally good lead in act make the place even more fun. There is a...More
