Our multinational team enjoyed the fast and furious show - sometimes just on the brink of being over the top... we had a blast and were glad that we had found and booked this event. :-

This is a fun show if you enjoy improv and comedy sketches. The performers are American and put on a funny show that caters to an international audience.

I thought the whole night was brilliant. The waitresses were very friendly and happy. The show was funny and they get you involved so you really feel a part of the whole evening. Make sure you pay a bit extra and get the drinks included, four jugs of beer later and I was rocking. One downside is the elbow room you have on the table, they do pack you in quite tight. Overall would definitely go again every time i am in Amsterdam.

This was so much fun. I would recommend it to anyone. The food was amazing and the show was very entertaining.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

What a fantastic night. This was well worth it. We thought the British perhaps appreciated the humor more than our American table mates, even though the cast was American. We also loved the great food and service. We would go again and recommend it to anyone.
