Brea Improve Entrance - By James - FlickrWho doesn’t like to laugh? If you love comedy, the Brea Improv is a good place to bust your gut.

I recently went with my wife to watch a specific comedian, but we were surprised by the long lineup of acts – both local and visiting.

The Brea Improv has a 500-seat showroom with a nice theater for the performers. The back wall is electronic and can adapt based on the show.

The performers covered a variety of comedy styles. Most were amazing and made the room erupt in laughter continuously. A few were not so successful but we encouraged them for trying.

Brea Improv showroom - By Ralph Figueroa - FlickrDuring our visit, the headliner was Ahmed Ahmed, an Egyptian-American actor, comedian, producer, and director. In 2014, he starred as “Ahmed” on TBS’ hit comedy series Sullivan & Son. His act was brilliant and non-discriminating. He poked fun at everyone and was extremely funny.

The improv serves food and drinks that you can enjoy before or during the show. I was not very impressed with the food.

We ordered the chicken club sandwich and beef tacos. The tacos were just ok and the club was dry and tasteless. I did see other people enjoying their food, so maybe I just picked the wrong dish.

The drinks were excellent. They had a variety of beers and wines and a full bar. I tried the Blue Moon IPA and my wife ordered several mixed drinks.

The Improv has a busy schedule of standup comedy and concerts. Go to their website here to find the next act and buy tickets.

All in all our experience was excellent. We loved the showroom, the drinks and most of all the comedians.
