an honest review 12/13/2006

My comic pals say the management at Giggles is terrible, and they prefer to work with the staff at the Comedy Underground. But comics still go there because there's, what, like 2 places offering stand-up comedy in town? Maybe three if you count the experimental wierdness of the Mirabou room on Wednesday nights, but that's IT! Every time I go to giggles, the house is small. Every time I go to the comedy underground, the house is packed. That should tell you something. But when I want comedy, I go to Jet City Improv in the same neighborhood. Always a great show. more

So Sad 4/24/2006

I stopped going here a while back. The owner was too high strung and depressing. I saw great comedians there, but I suffered while doing it. Why not just charge a ticket price that includes a drink and leave us alone to watch comedy? And please, stop getting awful opening acts. It was painful at times. I've only done stand-up a few times and I swear I almost ripped the mic out of a few hands to take over...my grandma tells funnier stories. It's too bad Seattle has such a bad comedy scene cause we have a lot of funny people here. I agree with other reviewers that this place needs an overhaul and the owner needs a few sessions of therapy. more

Waste of Time and $ 3/8/2006

I actually loved this place 7 years ago. The first time I went I saw Carlos Mencia and laughed all night long. Unfortunately, after this show, the owner of Giggles was so hard to work with that Carlos's manager refused to ever book here again. I went back here 3 times a year ago and swore to never come back. The owner got on stage and was rude to the whole audience. I went back a couple of months ago and have come to conclusion that this place has gone down hill. I will never go back again. All four times in the past year or so there was only one waitress working each night and the comedians were HORRIBLE!!!!! The charge was $20.00 per person and we never laughed once. All four times the same comedians showed up for the beginning acts. My boyfriend and I could repeat their acts verbatim. My boyfriend and I left after an hour and were disgusted. The food is horrible and the drinks are way overpriced. more

Giggles...A Good Start 9/20/2005

Giggles is funnier than you'd think...apparently it's funnier than they thought too-- "Giggles" isn't exactly the peak of comedy, but it's a good start. Maybe that's how it is for performers who go there. While Giggles doesn't pull the big names, it does get a great number of up and coming comedians and comedians who are big, but never quite made the cut at prime time. For their generally cheap prices, however, these shows are worthwhile, especially when you usually get a voucher for another show for free. The room "where the magic happens" is not the green room because as I said, these are not big names, it is the main room where the comedy goes on, and this room is small enough to keep the environment personal, no matter where you sit. The only real drawback is that of all comedy clubs: the drink minimums. The bread and butter of comedy and strip clubs, drink minimums are always annoying, but a necessary evil to see some live comedy. Some say that it's to help the performers since the audience will inevitably get at least a little gigglier, but more so it helps the owner's, because let's face it, Open Mic Night is not exactly built on a foundation of undiscovered comedy genius. Still, for 6 bucks, it's worth going and seeing some new talent (which do exist) and some older talents who will make you more than giggle...especially with the two drink minimum. more

A Comedy Club That Feels Dirty 8/19/2005

Having lived by Giggles for years, I have always had an aversion to Giggles. However, after seeing Margaret Cho perform there, I did learn to appreciate the intimate venue. However, I still think it needs a serious remodel and a new coat of paint. It just felt dirty inside. I've gone there a few other times, enjoyed the shows, and just tried not to think about the ambiance. If there is someone there you really want to see perform, I recommend going. more
