    I've seen all kinds of improv, sketch, stand up, et al - TRIKE is the real deal. Academic, with flashes of intelligent brilliance as well low-brow hilariousness. See them and enjoy!

    Take a free improv class or come watch their great (and super cheap) shows. Megawatt on Wednesday, trike on Saturday, and Armando Diaz Experience on Thursday are highly recommended.

    Everything is good here, but particularly Wednesday night Megawatt is the best comedy for your money, and Saturday night's Trike is amazing.

    Look for a guy named Binu who's checked in 411 times. Walk up to him and say "hey, don't I know you from foursquare?" You might get a special something.

    To Be Continued, usually the 2nd Fri each month, is a must. Megawatt on Wed nights is always a great time.

    Went here with my girlfriend because she had free tickets. The improv was good, nothing special. For some reason the bartender had to open both of my beers before I could go into the theatre, random.
