best experience in years. i can't imagine a better night out...sorry to hear that walt coleman had a bad time on new years eve...however our experience was the exact opposite. i too heard that it had changed hands a number of years ago. i had not been back since the old owner had it. he was, quite frankly, a slimey individual. we went on saturday night to see SHAWN WAYANS. the club has obviously been refurbished...no more folding chairs and white walls. this is now a BEAUTIFUL place! the show was incredible. completely sold out, however the service was friendly, on time, and our server was cute as a button. we were concerned that the 1030 show may start late when we realized how packed the 8pm show was...they started seating at 10pm and by 1035 the show started. seating was efficient. we purchased our tix ahead of time on the internet...all we had to do was show our ID at the door. I will back and back and back. it's nice to know that there is still a place for night life and comedy like LAUGHS UNLILMITED!!!!
We attended the 10pm new years eve show (12/31/07). Tickets were pricey at $53ea, but being a holiday, one expects to pay a premium. One also expects to get what they pay for.
Tickets supposedly were for a 10pm show that ran until midnight and included champagne and dessert. We arrived about 9:20 and proceeded to wait in 45 degree weather until nearly 10:30. The show didn't start until almost 11pm. Many patrons, ourselves included, never received the champagne toast or dessert, but that didn't stop the wait staff from harassing us about the 2 drink minimum. The club was over crowded with people squeezed in tightly. Even if you had wanted drinks, you'd have next to no shot of getting waited on unless you were seated on an aisle as we were.
The comedians were good, but overall we were extremely disappointed with the lack of organization and the fact that we did not receive what we paid for. Laughs Unlimited used to be a great place for comedy. Ownership changed a couple years ago and it's gone down hill since. We will not be back.
