  • Hands down most fun I have had in San Diego! Great date night, my cheeks hurt from laughing and smiling so much. I can't wait to come back!
  • The shows and performers change depending on when you go. If you go to the early show, they let you stay for the one after. We saw the house team and college team. Some skits were funny, some were not. Audience participation is a big part of the show. The show is family friendly (they have an unrated one on a certain day). If you like improv, it is worth a visit. Plenty of dinner options in surrounding establishments.
