What Our Audience Has To Say About Us!

Cool place. I saw the absolutely hilarious “Thank You For Being a Friend”, the Golden Girls parody. Enjoyed every moment of it, and I’m so glad I made it a part of my vacation.

Absolutely delightful and intimate Blackbox theatre where you see and hear everything. Plenty of parking everywhere. The lobby boasts couches to sit on and wait, snacks to buy, and a certain feeling of being in a real hip theater.

Great time at the naked comedy show! Handsome, funny and talented young men!! Not bad on the eyes!! Too bbad my 83 year old Mother was laid up in the hospital! It was her idea to see the show!!!! Greeted warmly by the host with free wine and many laughs as he warmed up the audience dressed in drag and full of wise cracks! Check it out if you get the chance!!!
