The club itself is a very nice room. There is a showroom on the main floor there's the showroom upstairs. The price to get in is very reasonable as almost clubs in Chicago. A large very well-stocked bar. Craft cocktails available. I know they serve food but I didn't have any since I went after dinner. The bartender was very nice. However on the night I went which was a Saturday, the pickings for comedians were pretty slim. It felt more like an open mic night than polished comedians. So I found that rather disappointing. I would highly recommend, as in most areas downtown, you take public or shared Ride transportation. There is little street parking.
The good thing I'll say is that it was free admission. Our group came in halfway through a comedy competition between two (amateur) teams of man/woman on each. They had various topics they had to tell jokes about for time periods and audience applause determined winner. One guy on one team was funny, other 3 people were not. Had a few laughs over 20 minutes. Next up until close was an hour or 1.5 of amateurs doing 2-3 minute bits, with about 3-4 regular comics at that club (professional? Semi?) In between. About 2 of maybe 10 amateurs were genuinely funny, some just got crickets. One guy we couldn't even understand. Professionals were a bit better. Almost all the bits from everyone that night were very very crude , about sex, and tons of cursing One drunk guy at the bar behind the audience starting talking to someone real loudly the last half hour which was really distracting, and none of the employees did anything about it. Finally, I had 2 mixed drinks (gin and tonic) that were $12 each and I've never tasted such terrible gin my whole life. Might have been floor cleaner and not gin! Overall, if you are visiting Chicago and only have limited opportunities to do things while you are there, pay the money to go see a professional comic.
Great people! Funny shows! Good food and drinks (also non alcoholic beverages). Hecklers get controlled firmly but respectfully.
I don't mean any harm. But Saturday was my second time at your comedy bar. The service was good and the customer service was good. Gino East pizza was disappointing and the sevice was sub par. If I return hire better comics and inform your wait staff that every customer is to be treated equally, and start with a smile it goes a long way.
Great place to see amateur comics, most are kinda bad. But still have a blast with throwing tomatoes. Definitely recommend visiting, prices are fair. Food was excellent. Will return again.
