A good way to waste away an evening with some laughter and the thrill of hermit crab sprinting. The Crabby Man at the mic has good crowd banter and keeps the entertainment fun for the family.

We went to one of the early "family" shows. While it was entertaining, it seems the emcee spends most of the evening hawking his t-shirts. Some of the jokes were a bit off-color for a family shown and at times the emcee was downright mean...More
