My visit to McCurdy's was awesome. A friend and I received tickets to see Jeff Dye and we are so glad we went. I had never been to a comedy club and didn't know what to expect. The bar is great and the bartenders were both really nice. The vibe was really chill and there isn't a bad seat in the house! I can't wait to go back!
We went to McCurdy’s Comedy Club and we had a great time. They were actually filming that night for the Comedy Channel. It is to be played back on a future episode. The headliner that was filmed was Helen Kearney and she was marvelously funny. She kept the four of us in stitches. If you ever catch her act you will love her too.
Our visit to McCurdy’s was average at best. First, the comedy was good. The headliner was worth the ticket price and the opening acts were okay. If this were just about the comedy, my rating would be different. The other aspects of the Theatre tarnished our visit. First, there is a two item minimum. Why? If your meals and drinks are so good, why force me to buy? Our meals ($12-$16 each) were overpriced, glorified kids meals. Small portions and nothing special. I also got a soda for a hefty price of $5.50! $5+ for a soft drink that didn’t include refills! That’s another $5.50 if you want more. We left hungry even after our $40+ bill which included a mandatory “tip” of 18%. It’s not a tip if required, that’s called a service fee. Other notes: If you buy drinks while you wait for your seat, it doesn’t count towards your required purchase. The seats are VERY tight and tables are TINY! My takeaways from our visit should revolve around the comedy. Instead it was the ancillaries that tarnished our experience. We drive into Tampa next time for a better experience.
We first went to McCurdy's with friends in the middle of August and we had a phenomenal time! The club has a two item minimum that is strictly enforced, but it's food, drinks or a combination. So don't feel like you HAVE to drink to have a good time! The venue is pleasant, the acoustics are wonderful and the atmosphere is very inviting. One thing I like about McCurdy's is that if you have a birthday, you might get tickets to see a show! The food is good, and the drinks are too, not too strong, but enough of a kick to enjoy them. The staff is friendly for the most part and accommodating. Rules are explained well when you get there and patrons adhere to them! Overall, great place, good experiences and somewhere I would highly recommend for a night out on the town!
We had so much fun last Friday night. Every comedian was super talented and made us all laugh deep and hard. It was a memorable night. The place was packed. Lots of people came away laughing and with smiles on their faces. You’ve got to experience this place if you are in Sarasota or come to Sarasota. Better yet let me take you for a night out as my client and enjoy some laughs together
