My wife and I stopped in here on a road trip through the American South. The comedian was hilarious. The wait staff was attentive. And the food was even decent. Overall- it was a good time.

We visited for Theo Von and had a blast! The place was pretty crowded so it helps that they sit you themselves. (Get there early for a good seat). The staff had their hands full and were still fast, and organized! They’re quick to take...More

We had a a great experience! Seats were amazing and the place was really laid out well. Most of the seats in the house weren’t bad.id definitely recommend VIP if available. Drinks were ok, service was pretty good considering the numbers they served.

Opening act great but downhill from there. Actually wanted to leave early the last 2 acts were so bad. 2 drink or “item” minimum-that can be a bottle of water. Nice small venue. Free parking-rare in Nash. Guess the ratings depend on who they book.

The young man who was the host was fantastic, and we wish we could have listened to him for the hour, but unfortunately it went down hill from there. The last act left us scratching our heads wondering what the heck we just watched. The...More

Went to see Jeff Allen. I have become a frequent visitor of Zanies in Chicago and Nashville. Almost always when I visit. An affordable evening out. Suggestion to fellow patrons. Don’t just see the famous comedians. I don’t want to suggest Jeff Allen isn’t famous...More

Saw Jeremy Pinsley at Zanies Comedy Showcase on May 24, 2018. He was great. Enjoyed the venue very much. No smoking. Good food and drinks available. Great line up of comedians year round!
