    This theater isn't as consistent as it use to be, but you can always see some of the best up and comers to the Chicago comedy scene.

    Intimate setting - occupancy by more than 75 is illegal and only 60 seats. The show was great. Nice cup holders for your BYOB

    The "Free Improv Show" was easily the worst $5 I've ever spent. They'd have to pay me to go again.
