Show Policies

There is no talking and no phone use allowed during any of our shows. If you need to check your phone, please get up and go to the restroom or back to the entrance/front desk of the club before checking your device. You will not be refunded if you are asked to leave.

How do I get my tickets?

We do not use physical tickets at our club. After purchasing, you will receive an email confirmation, but you do not need this to get in. It just serves as a receipt for your tickets. When you arrive for the show, make sure all party members have their IDs and everyone will check in under the name you put the tickets in at the front desk (This is our Will Call). Then we will get you seated!

How much are show tickets?

Tickets are generally $10-$20, though they can be higher for a Special Event. Check the calendar for specific event prices. Online ticket pricing is the lowest available price, plus our online ticket fees are the lowest in the entertainment industry (generally $2-$ per ticket). Tickets are $6-$10 more on the phone, and in person (if any remain).

Do you have food and beverages?

Yes, we have a full bar as well as a variety of bottles drinks (alcoholic and non). As for food, check out our menu HERE.

What is the difference between General Admission and Premium tickets?

Premium tickets are the best available seating, as long as you arrive before the show starts. You are guaranteed seating in the front couple of rows. General Admission is first come first serve. The earlier you arrive, the better seats you will have!

Is there an age limit?

Shows starting at 9:30pm are strictly 21+ and shows starting earlier are 18+ Valid ID required for all shows.

I know it says 18+ but can I bring my baby or someone under 18?

No, we do not want to disrupt other customers' viewing experience with babies at our shows.If you would like to take your baby out on the town, we suggest locating the nearest Chuck E Cheese. Some shows are listed "family friendly" or "all ages" where at that time you may bring in guests under 18.

I didn't recieve my confirmation email, what do I do?

No problem! This is not needed to get in and it is only a receipt for your purchase. Check your Spam, Junk, or Promotions folder as some email clients automatically send our emails there! Also make sure you have not unsubscribed to our emails or you will of course not receive any of our emails! If you need this email confirmation/receipt, send us an email to promo@tacomacomedyclub.com and we can resend one to you.

What is the difference between a "promo code" and a "group code"?

A promo code is a code you can use for a discounted price on your total order. A group code is used when you have a large group and each person is purchasing individually. Everyone will put in the same group code so our front desk staff knows you are one party and will seat you accordingly. The group code could be "Jane Smith's Birthday" or "John Doe's Retirement Party".

Do you have a military discount?

Our Friday 10 PM show, and our Sunday 7:30 PM show are free for Military! Call (253) 282-7203. and make a reservation, and you and one guest will receive free admission. You will need to show military ID or your VA card at the door. Police Officers, Firefighters, and EMT's are also invited to take advantage of this offer. Not valid on Special Events.

How long do the shows last?

Generally they last an hour and a half.

Where should I park?

There is plenty of free street parking around the club, as well as two pay lots just down the street.

Are you handicap accessible?

Yes. We have plenty of aisle seats, and the ability to never go up stairs.

Is there a drink or item minimum?

Yes, each person is required to purchase 2 items: this can be any alcoholic drink, non-alcoholic drink, or any food item off of our menu. There is no 2 item minimum on our open mic nights. Thank you for supporting live comedy.

Why do you have a 2 item minimum?

This is standard with most comedy clubs in the country. The comedian generally gets paid off of the ticket money, so this is how we keep the lights on and the staff paid. You have the option of purchasing alcoholic beverages, non-alcoholic beverages, or food. You can even get bottled water and take it home with you. We appreciate you supporting live comedy.

Should I make a reservation?

This is not required, but highly recommended. You can buy tickets online from our calendar page, or give us a call at (253) 282-7203. If you buy online, you do not have to call. Online is the best way to purchase, as it's the lowest available ticket price. You do not need to print tickets, just give your name when you arrive at will call. Our phone hours are 2 PM to 8 PM Sunday through Thursday; 12 PM to 10 PM on Friday and Saturday!

What is seating like?

We have cabaret style seating, so small tables with chairs around them. Most of our tables seat 4 people. If your group is smaller you may be sitting with another couple, if it is larger you will have multiple tables next to each other. All of our seating is done first come first serve. We do offer premium seating at a slightly higher ticket price online. This is guaranteed seating in the first couple of rows as long as you show up before the show actually starts. Premium seating is the only way to guarantee the first couple of rows.

Are you available for private events?

Yes we are. We can set up a comedy show for your event, or rent you the space on an off night. Aside from stand up, we have other corporate entertainment options, please send any questions to josh@barkentertainment.com.

For parties of 8 or more we add an automatic gratuity of 18%, similar to other restaurants. We also charge this gratuity if you do not sign your credit card receipt, or if you are asked to leave the show for being disruptive.

We are 100% non-smoking, including e-cigarettes of any type. There is also no re-entry, so finish smoking before coming into the showroom.
