Why did the chicken cross the road?

My foodie bestie, Van, invited me to be her date to an improv show where a co-worker of hers would be performing that evening. I used to love watching Whose Line Is It Anyway so I figured, why not! Plus, who doesn't love a good laugh after a stressful work day right?

The show requires a minimum purchase of 2 items (can someone explain this concept to me? I already paid admission and now you require me to purchase at least 2 things???) and the food was straight up - yuck!! We sat at a table of 6 friends and we made sure to order different items to give ourselves a buffet of samples. Man, oh man, oh man. The drinks were poorly made and the food selection was limited to appetizers only. You figured with a selective menu, the food would be aiight. Nope. Sigh. Thankfully, the comedy lived up to expectations!

There were about 15 comics that evening, and some definitely got the "it" factor of doing stand-up comedy like this African American guy. He was flipping hilarious!!

Would I go again? Depends on who's performing I suppose. Wayne Brady? Yes please! Shawn and Marlon Wayans? Heck yea!! Steve-O from JackAss? Eh, maybe not so much.

Oh, and when Van asked me to be her date, she wasn't kidding! She picked me up at my place and paid my admission to the show. So traditional and sweet of her no? Thanks for inviting me Van!!

Have you ever been to an Improv show? Who's your favorite comedian?
