    2015 Best Comedy Club: "Big enough to command a prime Theater District spot but cozy enough to feel like an intimate club, the Wilbur has blossomed into Boston’s premier place for biggish-name comedy"

    Definitely try to get floor seats or balcony seating - the Mezzanine has very uncomfortable and tight seating for anyone over 5'2".

    Sound isn't the best if you're right up front. Staff will give you a hard time for taking photos so be subtle about it. Venue best for seated Older Person events; it can't handle rock shows.

    Seeing The Cult

    Gorgeous theater and the best place in Boston for world-class comedy. Floor seating is the way to go. Balconies have zero leg room.

    Don't sit in the table seats up front. You'll hurt your neck!

    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.

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

    Great place to watch a show.

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

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

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

    Julian Weisser · November 24, 2011
  • Dom P.

    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.

    Dom Portalla · October 27, 2011
  • 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.

  • Massachusetts Convention

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

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

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

    Timothy McCarthy · February 1, 2011

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

  • Kevin S.

    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.

    Kevin Sanborn · November 29, 2010
  • Emily Y.

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

    Emily Yeager · August 16, 2010
