repost from Atlanta Moms on the Move

We are always looking for fun things to do around here. But sometimes there comes a time when you need to leave the kids with the sitter and head out for a much needed date night. Dinner and a movie is great but switching it up makes your date nights far more interesting.I’m always down for a good laugh so I was so excited to hear that the legendary Improv was finally coming to Atlanta. Atlanta Improv has opened in the East Andrews district in Buckhead. The legendary Improv comedy club was founded by Budd Friedman in New York in 1963. The Atlanta club marks the 24th addition.
If you aren’t familiar with some of the amazing digs in the Andrews District here is a quick run down.
CELLAR 56: Fine Wine Bistro
PROHIBITION: A 20s era Speakeasy with Craft Cocktails
CZAR ICE BAR – Atlanta’s First Ice and Sushi Bar (The bar is actually made of ice)
ANDREWS UPSTAIRS – Dance Club
STOUT IRISH SPORTS BAR – Irish-inspired Sports Pub
SAL’S PIZZERIA – True New York Style Pie
The best part about checking out Atlanta’s Improv is being able to sample food and cocktails from all of these places at the same time. You can enjoy them Tapas style or in full meals. Or just come to enjoy a drink. General admission starts at $15 (with a 2 drink minimum) making this an affordable date night as well!
We had a blast laughing at the local and national comedians that appeared. You can catch some great acts at the Improv. Over the decades, the talent who has played center stage represents the Who’s Who of American comedy including Richard Pryor, Billy Crystal, Lily Tomlin, Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Chris Rock, Dane Cook, Ellen DeGeneres, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Jeff Dunham, and Dave Chappelle.
Shows run Thursday-Saturday with doors opening at 7pm and show starting at 8pm.
The Atlanta Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre is located at 56 East Andrews Drive NW, Atlanta GA 30305.
General Admission tickets range from $15. There is a 2 drink minimum.
