Theatre Information
Established over 22 years ago, McCurdy's is located in a 4,000 sq. ft. showroom, surrounded by a gated courtyard. The theatre - with no obstructed views - is the perfect size and shape for today's Stand-up and Improvisation performances. Even at the very back of the room, seats are no more than 40 feet away from the stage. With a sound system second to none, each customer is provided the same brilliant auditory experience. In addition, we are excited to feature a brand new, state-of-the-art, digital projection system.

The Theatre was established in 1988. For ten years, it was located at the Holiday Inn Marina. There was a short run at The Big Kitchen on Clark Road, before the move to our current location in the nostalgic Teatro Theatre. The Theatre underwent almost a complete facelift and was redesigned to meet the specifications of McCurdy's. If you are a long time resident, you will notice that we kept some of the original architecture. The large front display, the statues in the courtyard, the statuettes and arches in the Theatre, and the chandelier over the exit are all from the old Teatro.

Over the past 22 years, comedians who have performed at McCurdy's read like a Who's Who list of the greatest names in comedy: Jeff Foxworthy, Chris Rock, Darrell Hammond, Larry Miller, Tommy Chong, Elayne Boosler, Soupy Sales, Judy Tenuta, Pat Paulsen, Jeff Dunham, Jimmie "JJ" Walker, Jim Breuer, Richard Lewis, Larry "The Cable Guy", Kevin Pollack, Ron White, Ralphie May, David Brenner and Bobcat Goldthwait. McCurdy's has also produced charity concerts with such comedic legends as The Smothers Brothers, Phyllis Diller, and Bob Newhart.

Larry "The Cable Guy" - "McCurdy's got'er done!"
Ralphie May - "What a Blast!"
Elayne Boosler - "I'm in a stripmall?!?"
Brett Butler - "Sophisticated comedy audiences."
Tommy Chong - "Screw Disney...I'm going to McCurdy's."
