Went last September with sister and friends, wanted to go back in July but wasn't able to work into our schedule. This is an inexpensive treat...a lot of fun and it's BYOB, which really keeps the cost down. Tips can be given at the end and it's well worth the money.

Great laughs during improv "bits" and games, some of which I had never heard of before. We parked by the post office and went to dinner nearby. Leave yourself plenty of time if eating dinner before. It took a few places to decide on a menu and then 40 mins to be served! We sat along the side balcony. The last row balcony was terrible to see.

The bit players were very entertaining. A fun night out. Come with your 'thinking cap' because they take audience suggestions.

Thoroughly enjoyed locals night, though we are tourists, watching this improv group. Very funny. It is BYOB so bring in whatever beverage is desired. The audience is called on to yell out suggestions for bits. We laughed throughout the hour long show. It was a special night, being the birthday of one of the player's girlfriends. The improve group brought her on stage and sang funny bits to her. To our absolute delight, the player/boyfriend got down on one knee, pulled out a ring and proposed. She said yes! Tears and laughter all around. A special night, indeed, but, even without the proposal, we recommend this venue. Laughter is good!
