This is the best place to see a comedy act in Tampa! Seating is first come, first serve. So get there about 30 minutes early to get a good seat near the stage. There is no minimum food/drink order, like some other clubs. However, there...More

It is nice to go out and see a live performance. Comedian was good and the opening acts were funny as well. Food is mediocre.

Got tickets for nothing for a comic named Ian Bagg. Absolutely hilarious. He plays on the crowd, so his show must be different every night. We sat up close and were part of his act with what we said about our kids. Great humor. Everyone...More

Hubby treated mr to some comedy on our last night in tampa. Really enjoyed it. The comedian Dean Edwards was hilarious! Drinks and food orders were the fastest I've seen at a comedy club... and they tasted great. Loved my experience.

Night out to see Michael Blackson with a couples friends. Michael was hilarious! His opening acts were funny too! I loved it! The food was bland like eating ice. Our table was too small for a party of four. Other than that, I definitely recommend...More

I will be going to a show alone. I will arrive early, to be seated up front. I don't mind sitting with people I don't know, just want to be assured I will sit as close as possible. Suggestions?

The show was about 2 hours when we went. We bought our tickets online the day before and just redeemed them there. I believe the price fluctuates depending on the day of the week and number of tickets already sold. I say... More
