  • 5 star review  Went for a date night with the boyfriend and loved it! It is a little basement bar you wouldn't even know existed! Walking in, the lighting is dim and it's very moody which made it perfect for a date. We tried the cocktails and fun shots throughout the show. The comedy was great and it was overall a great night. Would definitely go back!

    5 star review  I have been to this club numerous times and each night has been brilliant. The line ups are always sensational, top talent on the stage! It really is a great night out can't recommend enough!!

    5 star review  This place is the best! The strange venue makes it feel like a classic comedy club and the line ups are always a hit with comedians who kill every time - I've been back a couple of times. The MC has fun with the crowd every time and even if he picks on you, you'll be in on the joke. Would recommend for date night or for a work crew night out. I'll be back!

    5 star review  Have seen a couple of shows here and had a great time. The comic lineups are always awesome, the room is well run and organised, definitely going to see more shows here. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

    5 star review  Hands down the best comedy night in Sydney! Every show I've been to has been top-notch hilarious. A great night out with mates or a date night with a loved one. A great variety of comedians too which is a big big plus.
