A friend recommended Charlie's to us for good, up-and-coming comedy acts. We didn't think to buy our seats in advance so the view was kind of crummy. I don't recall the name of the comedian but he was so funny that I almost wet my pants. Sorry, but it's the truth. We heard if you eat at the restaurant you'll get better seating. I guess next time we'll come hungry and front the charge. My roommate at times felt the comedy was too crude. So beware, maybe don't bring your parents here.
