    Great venue with hard working staff during the event. Could not ask for more from the location. Your mileage will very on the acts but they get some great ones in from time to time

    Beautiful venue! Surprisingly roomy theatre. Drinks are overpriced for what you get however not a bad price to pay for all the laughs!

    Don't get the 15 dollar special drinks like my friends.

    Two drink minimum is an interesting / shady tactic. Drinks are like $12-15 each and menu has no price. a lot of people ordering beer, I realized this is very smart since the drinks are very weak.

    Claudia Stiglic · May 27, 2014
  • Brian G.

    Very well-run club. Drinks are fast. Sign up for their text club and get loads of free tickets.

    Brian Glines · April 19, 2014

    Four peaks, brewed and distributed widely from only 7 miles away is not domestic beer in a bucket! They will charge you the imported price of course :-) they should find a new name, like craft beer.

    First time here to see gabriel iglesias on dec. 29th. The food was fabulous,service was outstanding. Friendly helpful servers and clean nice venue! $12. 00 for a bahama mama was insane tho

    Tempe Improv is the best place for getting to see big name stars, but for prices that won't break the bank. They remodeled, so it's very nice in there now!

    Jazzy Quick · November 17, 2013
  • Luke M.

    Like most comedy clubs, there is a two drink minimum and the drinks are laughably overpriced. That being said, include that cost into your ticket and it's all well worth it. Great club with good acts.

    OK go late and the comedians are always in foyer here is a pic of me and Sinbad at Tempe Improv. Fun fact: his daughter was a SunDevil

    Since it's reopening, Tempe Improv is a great place to see a show with excellent service from the staff. Love what they did to the place, you'll have to see for yourself!

  • Ashley N.

    For my 21st birthday i got yelled at several times for "laughing too loud" I didn't know that was against the rules at a comedy club. So I just left. I wouldn't recommend this place.

    Ashley Nicholson · January 18, 2012
  • Keith Ellis ~ C.

    The wings done Ricci style are fantastic!

  • vincent k.

    If you want to laugh don't look any further. Great spot to go with your friends and enjoy top of the line comedians. If your a fan of stand up you have to go to a show.

    vincent kelly · April 14, 2011
  • Matthew P.

    Good place to go with friends, or take someone on a date too. New comedians come in every week check their website for umcoming shows. Food and staff are great, try the Ribs!

    Matthew Peterson · April 14, 2011
  • Alex K.

    Wonderful food and awesome acts, if you go on your birthday they might move you up!

    Great place for a night out. They get some pretty famous people to perform there. They have their schedule posted a head of time so you can check out who's performing there.

    Jason Abong · April 9, 2011
  • Michael M.

    Michael Moto · November 12, 2010
  • Kyle H.

    Great way to spend a weekend or weekday night, by enjoying laughs from various comics such as Charlie Murphy who performed there. Sit down and all seats great to see the performer.

    Kyle Hilow · November 11, 2010
  • mike m.

    Sammler venue but accomodating. I recently saw Jo Koy there and it was a good time. Get there early as parking may be hard to find on big events.

    mike matyka · November 11, 2010

    Two drink minimum for some shows.

    Don't come here! The employees are SO rude and the business is unorganized and unproffessional.

    Chuck Reynolds · August 3, 2010
  • Samantha C.

    Actually some decent acts now and again, but sometimes you gotta buy a certain amount of drinks (lame).

    Samantha Collins · July 13, 2010

    Go to a show only to have the opener out perform the headliner.
