Never been to a comedy show in Minnesota before? There’s a first time for everything! Below are some quick audience tips to ensure you and everyone around you enjoys the show with little interruption in between.

Turn Off Your Smartphone: From taking photos with the flash on to having your phone going off in the middle of a set, there’s a lot of interruptions that can be easily avoided by simplify shutting off your phone. Sometimes, the light from a smartphone can be distracting to the performer and/or your neighbor, so be sure to keep it off, relax, and enjoy the show!

Be Kind; Don’t Heckle: Our comedy club features some of the best local and national talent the comedy industry has to offer. We guarantee laughs, non-stop fun, and humorous entertainment. We only ask that guests remember to be considerate of the performer and the audience members around you. Be polite and reframe from heckling or shouting out commentary during a live show.

Shhhhhhhh: Sound often carries, and if you or your friends is trying to carry on a conversation in the middle of the comedian’s set, this can be distracting for everyone. Try to keep conversation short and let the performancer do the talking.
