comedy club = comedy – If you want comedy this is the place. there is a defferent act or mix of acts every night. I paid $12 to get in for the 8pm show and $7 for a mixed tall drink. There were 2 waitresses, both very nice and attentive but you can split 2 people only so many ways, there were 100 customers or more. The food looked greasy, fries, burgers, greasy spoon type. I came for the comedy not the food and ate at the Indian restaurant next door. The club was not packed but if it was and 1/3 of the patrents smoked you would get your share of smoke.
The parking right by Giggles is for 3 to 5 cars only but there is enough street parking in the area to accomodate everyone, free after 6pm.
It's all about the money – Showed up about an hour before the show to get a decent seat. Took an hour + to get our food and 1/2 hour for drinks, have had better food at an AM/PM mini-mart. Tried to order the next round of drinks at the bar. Bartender ignored me. Even though they were totally unprepared for the turnout, the owner of the club was busy jamming more people inside. Despite the fact that he couldn't provide decen't service. When the show finally started the owner of the club came up on stage and made a weak apology. Told us " it was all about the comedy". Someone in the audience even called the fire dept. The comedy was good. Frankly it's about the experience. Needless to say ours wasn't good. My advice, unless there is someone you really want to see, go to the comedy underground in Pioneer square.
