We had a blast at Dan Cummins' show. The venue isn't huge but it's a great environment. Drinks were a bit pricy - we easily spent more on them then the actual tickets - but overall the cost of the show was still reasonable.

I would recommend this place. The comedy was pretty good and the food was average bar fare. This was a nice surprise

A hidden gem on the 3rd floor of The BOB, prepare to laugh your pants off, as this venue books some of the funniest established, as well as up and coming artists.

We always have a great time when we visit Dr. Grins. They bring in fresh, new talent and some big names too. Atmosphere is good, but a little crowed. And the two drink minimum is a little too pushy.

I was surprised to find that they often have some bigger names at this club, not just local comedians, and not just during Laugh Fest. It is a small cozy space, which lets everyone be able to see the comic. And the tables are arranged...More

You have to be 18 years or older. Also we prefer if they are under 21 that they come to the earlier shows
