It's in Ybor, not downtown. Haven't you been here for a while? And you don't know what Ybor is like?

I don't go downtown ever...and only been to Ybor once back in 2006...I don't even know how to get there really...I have no business down there. Do you know where people park to go to that Improv?

We usually park in the Centro Ybor parking garage on 6th & 15th. Then you can just go across 7th Ave to Central Ybor, where the Improv is.

There are a couple parking garages in Ybor, most people park in those. There is also a lot of street parking around.

I google searched Improv Ybor and found this.....this internet thing is fantastic.


Tampa Improv

THE IMPROV. 40 YEARS. MILLIONS OF LAUGHS.

The History

Improv Comedy Club and Dinner Theatre has been the career launching pad for dozens of the familiar faces of television and film. Before becoming a cast member on NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live,’ David Spade was a “local comedian” at the Improv in Tempe, Arizona, hosting shows regularly. Bette Midler was a cocktail waitress at the Improv in New York, where she was given the opportunity to exhibit her vocal talents. Other Improv alumni include Lily Tomlin, Robin Williams, Jonathan Winters, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey and the list goes on. Today, the Improv continues to showcase performers well on their way to join the ranks of the Improv’s famous veterans.



Reservations

Advance ticketing and reservations are always recommended as our shows do sellout. All phone reservations must be held with a valid credit card. There are 3 ways to purchase tickets.



1. Call our box office at 813-864-4000 to hold the reservation with valid credit card.

2. Purchase tickets online.

3. Stop by our ticket office during business hours.



Box Office Hours

Monday – Tuesday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wednesday – Thursday 10:00 am - 8:30 pm

Friday 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Saturday 11:00 am - 10:30 pm

Sunday 1:00 pm - 7:30 pm



Age Restriction, Dress Code and Seating Policy

All shows are 21 and older with valid ID unless specified.



Acceptable Forms of ID (We do not make any exceptions):

- State Issued Identification Card

- State Issued Driver License

- Military Identification Card

- Valid US Issued Passport



While our dress code is casual, we do ask that you do not wear hats (We know you love the Rays and you look good in a fedora but please leave it at home)inside the showroom and that men do not wear sleeveless shirts (i.e. tank tops, jerseys and cut-offs). Also, as a comedy club we take no responsibility if a comedian makes fun of your outfit!



We seat on a first come first serve basis. The earlier you enter the show room, the closer you will be towards the Improv stage. We typically seat 4 people per table. If you have a party of 2 and we are sold out, expect to sit with another couple. We do not offer preferred/reserved seating. Large groups should arrive early to assure the entire party will be seated together. We seat from the front of the room to the back so if you would like to sit in a specific area of the showroom arrive accordingly!

I am not sure where was I asking about the "History" of the Improv!

My question was where to park? and how SAFE is that area. Mainly after 5:30PM!

Maybe you can Google for READING SKILLS next time! I am not sure that everyone on Google lives in Tampa, and has been to Ybor! I was asking those who LIVE HERE, and have had FIRST HAND experience in THAT area of TOWN which I NEVER visit!
