Saw a Monday night show with my daughter. The players were great! The humor was slightly risqué for teens, but definitely fun for adults. Engaged with the whole audience. Fun, inexpensive night out.

This was a fun activity for a date night, outside of the hustle and bustle of the bars & shops scene. The location was easy to find, and parking wasn't an issue along the street. It was BYOB, which I wish they had stated, but...More
