While the Purple Onion as a venue was cute and cozy, the cocktail waitress was attentive and effective, the comedians were absolutely hilarious! I went to the Purple Onion for my first live comedy show and it was amazing. Todd Barry, the headling comedian (who does Romulon from Aqua Teen Hunger Force-of which I am a huge fan) totally dominated the whole show. I was so taken by his flawless ability to rule the crowd, exploiting all opportunites to make a laugh at the expense of anyone who drew attention to them (by getting up, or just by sitting in the front row, which we were). Of course I was not spared, and the jokes he made at my expense definitely had me gasping for air. A fantastic experience all around!
