Extremely rude Security told me I was laughing too loud. I was appalled and we left. My husband and my friends were shocked.

The BOB is a great space, and it was a fun way to laugh away the evening and have a couple of drinks. Great price for live entertainment.

Cheap tickets, good seats decent pizza. The wait staff is very attentive and helpful. Funny comedians and great host. We will defiantly visit again, it’s a great place to visit in the winter for an indoor activity.
