    Get 4 general tickets to a single show for one low price! This is the perfect offering for a small group, a double date, or a post-work get-together. This promotion can only be purchased ONLINE. You cannot buy this promotion in person. There is only a limited quantity available.

  • What is the difference between General Admission, Reserved and Premium Table seating?

    General Admission tickets are on a first-come, first-sat basis. The earlier you arrive, the better your seating will be. General Admission seats may be pre-purchased online or you may make a reservation over the phone.

    Reserved tickets guarantee that your party is seated together. Reserved seats are assigned based on when you purchased your tickets, and you will be given the best available seats for the size of your party. Reserved tickets can only be pre-purchased online.

    Premium Tables can seat up to 4 people. Premium tables are located in the first row of the elevated section of the showroom with a unobstructed view of the stage. These tables allow more legroom for your guests, you will have the BEST view of the stage and you can guarantee that you will not have to share it with anyone else other than your party of 4! Premium Tables These tickets can only be pre-purchased online.

    All reservations, including online purchases, EXPIRE 30 minutes prior to show-time, and ALL tickets are subject to release at this time. If you are running late, please contact the club so we can arrange to hold your seats.

  • Are there any age restrictions?

    We are an 18+ venue.

  • What time should I arrive?

    The Factory on the first floor, featuring a full bar with food and drinks, is open two (2) hours prior to show-time -- grab a bite and wait for your party, or simply indulge. Tickets also become available at that time. The Showroom will open 30 minutes prior to show-time. Punctuality pays dividends in fun!

    General Admission tickets must be claimed 45 minutes prior to show-time. All reservations, including online purchases, must be claimed 30 minutes prior to show-time. ALL tickets are subject to release at this time. We will not hold phone reservations less than 30 minutes prior to show-time.

  • Does Goodnights accept credit cards?

    We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and debit cards. No personal checks accepted.

  • What is the refund policy?

    All sales are final. There are absolutely no refunds or exchanges.

  • Is there a drink minimum?

    Instead of a drink minimum, we have a two-item minimum in the showroom (e.g. 1 soda and 1 appetizer) which gives our patrons an opportunity to enjoy the food Goodnights has to offer. Beverages or food purchased in the restaurants before or during the show do NOT count toward the showroom two-item minimum.

  • Should I research the comedian before attending a show?

    Yes! Comedy is subjective and certain comedians are not for everybody. Watching a YouTube clip or reading the headliner's biography is a great way to get insight on the expected performance.

  • What is the Showroom like? How does seating work?

    The showroom arrangement is similar to a cabaret theater – chairs surrounding tables, facing the stage. With friendly and discreet table service, we ensure you won’t miss any of the action on stage.

    Reserved ticket holders are given priority seating nearer the front of the house. General admission seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

    Shows are usually between an hour and a half and an hour and forty-five minutes.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Nice, casual attire.

    Dinner Guests with General Admission Tickets have the option of early entry in the showroom. Upon eating dinner, your party's tickets will be given a Early Entry Stamp and you will be notified when it is time to enter the showroom.

    Early arrival Guests with General Admission Tickets (those who arrive 45-60 minutes prior to show time) may wait in "The Factory". A secondary entry stamp will be given, which will allow you to enter the showroom after the dinner guests have been sat.

    Guests who arrive 30-45 minutes before show time may wait in "Elements" on the 3rd floor and will be seated after dinner guests and those with a stamp.

    All Guests who arrive less than 30 minutes prior to show time will either wait outside (barring the weather) or on the 1st or 3rd floor and will be seated after the above groups have entered the showroom.

    If you do not receive a stamp or remain in the waiting areas you will not be guaranteed early entry to the showroom.
