frequently asked questions
Can I order food/drinks/dinner at the show?
YES. Dinner and drinks are available for purchase during the show. We recommend arriving earlier for dinner (30-60 minutes before show time) since the show is best enjoyed without a mouth full of food and we would hate to see you choke on a funny joke.
Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?
You don’t “need” to but we recommend purchasing tickets online. Some shows sell out. If you purchase tickets in advance, you are guaranteed seats. Besides, tickets are a little more expensive at the door, and won’t be available once we fill all the seats.
Can my group sit together?
Seating is first come first serve. You can arrive early and reserve your seats OR email us your group size and we can reserve seats for you.
How long is every show?
Most shows run for an hour and a half (90 minutes). Some special shows may run longer.
Is there any age restriction?
We recommend 18+. If you are under 18 and accompanied by an adult who doesn’t mind it, we won’t mind it. If you are too young to sit quietly in one place for 90 minutes we’ll be happy to supply your parents with rope and duct tape to tie you to your chair and tape your mouth during the show.
What are the house rules?
No video recording. No flash photography. No answering anything on your phones during the show. No Alpacas.
What if I have a question that is still not answered?
Who do you think you are? My mother? Do you really need to know everything? Okay, just email us and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
