Before becoming a cast member on NBC's ‘Saturday Night Live,' David Spade was a "local comedian” at the Improv in Tempe, Arizona, hosting shows regularly. Bette Midler was a cocktail waitress at the Improv in New York, where she was given the opportunity to exhibit her vocal talents.

This is a fun place to bring friends and just belly laugh! I've always enjoyed the comedians they bring in and their food is good too. The wait staff is always friendly!
Great place to bring a date and enjoy some good laughs.
Cool bar to see local and touring talent
If you like to laugh, best comedy club I've been to in the area! Staff was nice. Food was great!
Great place to watch some big comedians and enjoy a few drinks or a meal. The blueberry habanero sauce is very tasty and goes well with the pulled pork.
Hahaha, always a good laugh! This place has a great atmosphere and ambiance. Perfect for a date or group of friends to have a great time. When the show lets out, you are right in the heart of Ybor with so much to do. Some GREAT comedians have come through the Tampa Improv.
Pros: Centrally located in Centro Ybor City.
No Drink Minimum! Used to be a 2 drink minimum, but no more! :)
Pros: The Improv always has great comedians. Go for a good laugh with good people, you won't be disappointed!
Cons: It's hard to park in Ybor City, so use the parking garage on 5th Ave between 15th and 16th St!
