The UnFunny Bone / The Broken Bone - No Stars.
I've been there 4 times and had a mediocre time each time but the free tickets were attractive. The fourth time we went was by far the worst experience I've ever had at any comedy club. I would recommend everyone chose Go Banana's over the Broken Bone any day! 1st) We ordered a pitcher of margarita and tasted nothing but mixer! I rarely ever drink alcohol and the smallest amount in a drink and I'm squishing my face - not this time. Our waitress said it was half full of tequila - yeah right. 2nd) Service is BEYOND SLOW! I could work faster walking backwards. I try to be positive each time I went there because I was a server once and know how crummy of a job it can be. Every time we've been there, it's been the complete pits - I recommend ordering 2 drinks at one time to avoid waiting a half our between refills. 3rd) Acts are always C+ performances. Be prepared to possibly get picked on a little bit by the comic - especially if you sit up front. I went with a group of 4 of my girlfriends and the horrible comic decided to pick on our table a few times. To make a long story short, I made a comment, "what an a**hole" because he was saying some degrading stuff to a table full of African Americans. The 'comic' then said something along the lines that I looked like the biggest whore in the room and that everyone, including blacks, muslims and jews should gang bang me after the show and cum their gold star chili all down my face. Before he left stage he made some type of comment and said to me, "except for that dumb f**** whore" I guess he didn't like that I thought he sucked and he was a worthless comedian. Worst place at the levee by far - they give so many free tickets away because everyone know the place completely sucks. Let's just say I was pretty offended when I left and I can't believe the Funny Bone management would allow that type of behavior to their guests.
