Addison Improv Comedy Club
Addison Improv Comedy Club is a great place to unwind, but be careful: your sides might ache from laughter. The venue often features national acts and is exactly what you would expect from a popular comedy club—very dim lights and not a bad seat in the house. Cloth napkins add a touch of elegance. The Improv's menu is quite impressive, with something for all tastes and appetites. Appetizers include popcorn shrimp, chicken fingers and nachos. The menu also includes salads, pasta dishes, grilled chicken, burgers and steaks. Of course it wouldn't be a comedy club without a bar, which carries beer, wine and mixed drinks.
Once a month my friends and I choose a different location to do our girls night out and tonight was no different. We were supposed to be going to a murder mystery set at the improv that was advertised through their website and you had to purchase tickets on the website also. Well what we got was foolishness. There was no murder mystery as there was nothing to solve. The advertisement said that the audience would get to solve the mystery and prizes awarded. No such thing as the revelation of the murderer was told to us by anactor. A couple even walked out early the presentation was so horrible. We asked to speak to a manager and were denied access to one. We were told that Sean COULD NOT be pulled away from closing out the night to speak with us. We were also told by the person seating the door that generally he is to tell people that he is the manager to resolve any issues before they get to Sean but since we knew Sean's name that he would not lie to us. We were told by several of the cast members that the "murder mystery" was free this evening b/c it was the opening night. Well all nine of us paid $15 for the show and an extra $2 for a surcharge, imposed by the improv, for a total of $17 and there is a two item minimum.
When asked whether the show was in fact supposed to be free we were told by this fake manager that he did not know. When asked if this was not suppose to be a murder mystery we were told yes but that they cannot control the acts that come in there and they don't check the credentials of the people performing. We then asked what role the improv plays if they are selling the tickets, charging a surcharge, have no disclaimer and advertising the play as their own. We were hen giving the run around. We were then asked what we would like for him to do and we all stated give us some type of compensation to see another show. Well to insult my intelligence, this guy brings back these buy 2 tickets for the price of one to see the driving school class at the improv. We all looked at him like are you serious, none of us have tickets so how are we suppose to use this. And further it says that it cannot be used for special events or on the weekends and only give 3 days when it can be used. At no time did this Sean fellow come out. I have never been somewhere or worked in an industry where the customer is 1. lied to and told that someone other than the manager is the manager 2. told that the manager cannot come out and speak to you because he is too busy or 3. told that something would be comped only to find out that you have to buy something else to have the first item comped.
Sorry they will never get another dollar of mine.
I have been several times to the improv in Dallas. The comedians are always funny. The seating stinks (chairs to close). If a large person sits next to you, you are in for a very intimate night. Smokers have better seating (can�t figure this one out)
The food is horrible.
If you want to see some great comedy this is the place to go. I keep going back because of the comedy not the place. I would recommend for the comedy ONLY
The seat were packed to close the waiter kept hitting me every time they walked by and the actuall smoking seat had a better view. There was another guy at a different table where the waiter bumped him and made his drink fall all over his shirt. The comics were funny but the
actual waiters bumping in to me every time the had an order or people were being seated made me start not likeing the place had same problem when I went to see Gabreil Eglasies
The service is poor to say the least. Even if you call ahead or purchase tickets on line, you must go early to get your seats. For example, I called ahead and purchased 4 tickets. We got there about 15 minutes befor the show started. The four of use were split into 2 groups of 2. They do not reserve your seats.
Also, the wait staff has been horrible every time we have been.
Stay at home and see these guys on TV!
The Improv in Dallas was a blast for adults that like to have fun. My husband and I went to see Alanzo Boden, Jay London and Gary Gulman on Oct 2nd, 2004. Not only were the acts hilarious, but the staff was efficient and courtious. The best of all there is not a bad seat in the house. Often in comedy clubs you will have a lot of side chairs were you see nothing but the back of the comics, but not at the Addison Improv.. they are ALL the best seats. My husband and I had a blast and will go back often.
