How would you rate Jokes & Notes?
Went here for a friend's open mic and I really enjoyed myself the comedians were very funny (well all except for the last one who was thrown on the program at the last minute). There is a two drink minimum and they stress that so that there are no surprises and also the drinks were really good also. Would definitely go back to get a good laugh in
Best Comedy Club in Chicago. Despite it's 2 drink minimum plus an entrance fee. The only game in town if you want watch "urban" comedians. All star comedians like Steve Harvey, Deon Cole, Lil Rel and just about any big name African American comedian you can think of has performed at this this venue. They also feature an assortment of multiracial comics who are breaking out and on the verge.
This is my home club and the place I started doing standup. I started because it is across the street from my house. ;-)
Great place. Laughter is wonderful for the spirit. Great comedians, reasonable admission price. Every seat is a good seat. Plenty of parking on the streets.
I have been to Jokes and Notes several times and Every visit has been a laugh riot. It does the soul good to let go and laugh. Mary Lindsey is a Chicago GEM for bringing all of us such great entertainment!
I have been to Jokes And Notes a few times and though the comedians are alright, the service sucks. The two drink minimum is to be expected but they add an automatic 18% gratuity to your bill regardless of the size of your party.
Recently went and ordered a Bud Select and the guy brought me a Bud Light. When I pointed it out, he retorted "Well you drunk some already".
I doubt I will return...at least not if I have to spend my own money
This past weekend was my first time and all I can say is OMG. Nice atmosphere, strong cocktails, and the comedians were on point. Shout out to the host Vanessa! She made choke several times :) I will recommend this place to all my sexy and grown people.
definitely a good time
All the comics where funny, had me dying all night!
laugh so hard head started to hurt love this place
I am the only person on the planet who has not been to this comedy club. I absolutely love the kindness, professionalism. and courtesy of the owner, the set up, the sweet server and the acts lined up that night! I will definitely return to support Jokes and Notes. I walked in with back pain, but was no longer focusing on it after an amazing night of comedy!
I love this place, when I came home from war both times, this was the very first place I had to come to. One time my wife and I made the mistake of sitting in the front row :-( But what a great time we had! I now sell cars at Berwyn KIA and when my customers ask what I like to do for fun, I tell them go visit Jokes and Notes. Actually going there tonight (been awhile).
Went there a couple times and I had a blast. The comics were hilarious .. but the bill that 18% for the waitress. . Makes me not wanna go back.. but a very nice place to go if u wanna have a great time
The comedians I have seen here have been pretty funny, so the talent scout does a good job at finding the top funny people. Watch your check, though. There is a 2-drink min which is fine, but don't tip on top of the bill, sometimes there is a built-in gratuity. Other than that, a good place.
Drinks were very watered down. 2 drink minimum, 18% added gratuity. Waitress had an attitude.
Otherwise, show was really funny and the other staff were incredibly friendly.
Be prepared to wait on the sidewalk in South Side if you show up early, no waiting in the lobby.
I have been here before loved it
My man stick her

I like this place but it has its weaknesses. I'll start with the weaknesses
It's a bit pricey just to get in the door. Be prepared to shell out at least $20...read this and 49 more
