Taken from Yelp ONE STAR 8/9/2008 i went to a friday night free midnight show a few weeks ago when judd apatow was making a guest appearance. Judd apatow was kinda funny but the rest of the show was mediocre at best, even for improv. a cople of the acts just weren't funny, one was very strange, and one was a totally racist skit involving two comedians in Ku Klux Klan outfits holding an election to see who would get to asassinate Barack Obama. it was horrible, and actually very offensive. i will never go back here.
