    If you want food, you’re in luck. It’s in Chinatown, so everything around is a good option. – Tucker B.

    The Wilbur Theatre has the best stand up comedy in Boston. Check http://www.TheWilbur.com for a updated show schedule

    Mezzanine or Balcony seating is must for the comedy shows. Don't get squished into those tiny seats & tables on the ground floor.

  • Timothy M.

    The seating here is way to close for comfort, but always has the best shows

    If you're tall, don't sit in the balcony seats. Long legs don't work in balcony seats.

  • Jennifer L.

    The Wilbur is a great place to see non-music shows, particularly comedy shows; but the floor seats close the stage are a pain. Balcony seats are best, but don't offer all that much leg room.

    Boston Common Garage is a short walk from the Wilbur Theatre. On weekends and evenings (after 4PM) parking is just $11.

    Make sure to bring padding for your ass cuz the seats are worse then when I was in elementary school.

    Seating is a bit tight, but the venue brings in quality artists to make it worth the minor discomfort. Great, intimate spot to catch some stand-up comedy.

    cool club, bar location was awkward though causing lines throughout the theater. Great balcony seats.

    The staff is super sweet and friendly, really cozy cool place to check out comedians. Womens bathroom is tiny but kind of adorable.

    Agreeing with Emily about comedy seating. I had seats right next to the stage and I was miserable. Would have enjoyed the show a lot more in comfy balcony seats.

    It is so unbelievably hot in this place that it is unbearable. Second time that I have almost walked out because if the heat. Paying too much to not have the temp control. Melting....

    Common Sense: Try to be seated in the middle, the acoustics are much better

    One of Boston's best theaters. There are so many good shows produced here you may have to take out a loan to see them all.

    The Wilbur has A+ social media marketing! Look for the signs for the show's official hash tag.

    There is really no bad view from the Balcony. I prefer it to being far back and underneath.
