    2 drink minimum is extortion. I will be going out of my way to ensure others do not visit this establishment.

    For 35+ years this legendary spot has introduced some of the greatest comedians of all time including Eddie Murphy, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Sandler & Dave Chappelle. Jay Leno helped paint the ceiling.

    Service was great, the nachos magnificent. Saw Hollywood Babble-On and saw Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman in person for the first time. The image of Ralph doing his Peewee impression is haunting me
