This was our first visit to McCurdy's and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The one disappointing thing was the "cover charge". We should have checked ahead of time but we were not aware that you had to purchase a minimum number of drinks/food items per person.

Les McCurdy always gives a great show, even before the starring acts. Very happy that they moved to the new location, just wish they'd bring back the popcorn.

We use to get free tickets all the time, and now that they are downtown no more freebies. I really do wish they would do the tickets again. for birthdays..would love to take my mom.

The previous location was, well, not the best area. Downtown presents other challenges (parking for one) but it also adds to a fun night out. Comedy is king in my heart and McCurdy's fits the bill!

How strict is the ID check at the door. Our daughter is 'almost' 18 and I'd appreciate perspective before I buy tickets in advance. Thank you
