First time here, and it was for the World Series of Comedy finals. It was super busy but picking up tickets and getting into the green room lounge was easy. We were sat at our table and didn’t wait long for our drinks. The drinks came out quickly and the beer was ice cold. We ordered a bucket of beef so it would stay cold and we wouldn’t have to bug the server during the sets. Remember it’s a two item minimum at the show (not a two drink minimum). I also ordered there signature old fashioned drink off the menu made with Makers Mark and it was well made. Finally I ordered chips and salsa and I hope they read this and at least consider upping the salsa. It didn’t fit compared to nice environment and cocktails, and it was more like ordinary jar salsa! Show was fantastic, and the comics were great. Only complaint was the website to vote didn’t work for anyone at our table. Great shows upcoming so check this place out!

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.

Fun night at McCurdy's. We went with friends and had a great evening. The headliner was LA Hardy. The entire show was fun and funny including the opening from Les McCurdy. We ordered the burgers along with beer during the show. Food was good.

Oh boy, do I have a review for you! If you're looking for a night of laughs, McCurdy's Comedy Theater in Sarasota is the place to be. This place is awesome and I can't recommend it enough! First off, let me just say that the owner Les McCurdy is an absolute riot. He's an amazing opener and really gets the crowd going! The moment you walk in, you can feel the good vibes and the positive energy. Les is always walking around, making sure everyone is having a good time and cracking jokes left and right. He's like the comedy godfather of Sarasota. The venue itself is great, with an intimate setting that allows for a personal connection between the audience and the comedians. There's not a bad seat in the house, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Speaking of the show, the comedians that perform at McCurdy's are top-notch. I've seen some of the funniest acts of my life here. From big names like Carlos Mencia, Rob Schneider and, Jim Breuer, to up-and-coming comedians that are sure to be stars in their own right. But the real reason to come here is for the laughs. I mean, this is why you come to a comedy theater, right? The jokes are always fresh, the timing is perfect, and the delivery is impeccable. It's like they've all mastered the art of making people laugh. Let's not forget about the food and drinks. They have a great selection of beers and cocktails to choose from, and the food is surprisingly good for a comedy club. I recommend the nachos, they're the perfect snack to enjoy while you're laughing your butt off. There is a two item minimum per person, per show, which is very easy to do with a drink and a snack, usually I’ll have 2 or 3 of each. Paying is super easy as gratuity is included. The wait staff really knows how to work the venue, service is quick. Overall, McCurdy's Comedy Theater is a must-visit if you're in Sarasota. Les and his team have created a truly special place that will have you laughing until your sides hurt. So grab some friends, grab some drinks, and get ready for a night of non-stop laughs at McCurdy's!
