Here is what our customers had to say about theater and shows on Groupon:

★★★★★ 2018-12-14

"Oly Underground is like hanging out in your rec room, except with great food and music and someone to make drinks! It’s a very relaxed, all age atmosphere and I always enjoy my time there.."-Alison R.

★★★★ 2019-03-04

"What the restaurant lacked in atmosphere it made up for in service and food. While being pricey, the novelty of the evening made it fun. From 9-10, 5 singers came out and sang followed by a show from 10-11 then followed by the same singers again for everyone to dance to. The show part was definitely the best part. I wish it had been longer.."-Holly B.

★★★★ 2019-03-04

"Enjoyed the Kit Kat Lounge. Food was good, drink was delicious and performer was entertaining. My guest and I sat right by the door so we were freezing for the first 20 minutes of the show. I would definitley go back.."-Karrie S.

★★★★★ 2019-03-05

"I truly can’t believe that people have posted negative reviews. The service was wonderful and we absolutely loved the staff. We went for an early dinner to avoid crowding and got a very personalized experience. We were able to upgrade our entrees to the steak for $5 and the food was all great. Entertainment was hilarious, but you’ll have to see it for yourself.."-Kiki M.

★★★★★ 2019-03-02

"The vegan food is delicious. HIGHLY recommend the cheesecake. Great service. Fun atmosphere. Historic SF. How much more do you need??."-Chelsea d.

★★★★★ 2019-03-07

"We had the best time! They had appetizers before the show, a mini show in the waiting area, and then we were led into the main area. The actors were amazing and food was yummy! The servers were really nice and atentive. They brought us brownies with candles to celebrate my son and husband’s birthday which was very nice. I really like how interactive the actors and the show is with the crowd. A bunch of kids and adults, including my husband, were asked to participate which was really cool! Will be back soon!."-Maria S.

Live Performances Nearby

If you’re looking for a traditional stand-up comedy show where you’ll laugh until you cry, there are plenty nearby. But if you want to branch out and explore something different, try a drag show or adults-only burlesque.

Both drag and burlesque celebrate performance styles and people of all backgrounds. You’ll laugh, cry, and celebrate along with a crowd of enthusiastic attendees. These are shows where yelling and cheering are absolutely encouraged, so find a venue with live performances nearby and shout the stress away.
