The talent that graces the stage is actually quite good! The goofiness definitely permeates throughout the crowd(Knocking back a few reasonably priced drinks first doesn't hurt). The bartenders are super friendly, and the post-grad crowd is rowdy enough to make it a fun night out without making you want to throw a bottle at someone. Worth the trip if you're in a festive mood.

If I'm not seeing a show at UCB, I'm seeing one here. They've got great stages, plenty of talent and really unique shows, my favorite being Hold On to Your Butts, a shot-for-shot reenactment of Jurassic Park pulled off completely by two guys. There's also a nice, big bar area up front so everyone doesn't feel so crowded in, and some snacks like pizza and popcorn. Shows are usually pretty cheap, and students get in for $1. Check it out to go off the beaten comedy path just a bit, and if you'e brave enough or want to make new friends, take a class!
