  3. What is the difference between improv and stand-up?

    Stand up comedy is a routine, so it's rehearsed by the comic. Improvisational comedy is made up on the spot - think "Whose Line Is It Anyway?".

    The lounge and lobby opens one hour before each night's first show and 30 minutes prior to subsequent shows.

    We have a two-drink minimum in the showroom, which applies to all shows and all ages of customers. The drinks do not have to be alcoholic, and The Comedy Shrine offers both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options. Beverages purchased in the lounge/at the bar before or during the show do NOT count toward the one-drink minimum.

  9. How long do the shows typically last?

    Shows are usually between an hour and a half and an hour and forty-five minutes in length unless otherwise noted.

    Patrons may take photographs before or after the show. Taking photographs, filming, videotaping or other recording of shows without the written consent of the club and the artist is strictly prohibited. Patrons who abuse this policy will be ejected immediately.

  13. Can The Comedy Shrine be rented out?

  14. Should I research the comedian before attending a stand-up show?
