On The Town – Hyena?s Comedy Night Club

If you like fruity drinks and "fruity" laughs,
then Hyena's Comedy Night Club is the place
for you.

This place may come off a little gothic and
mysterious as you walk down a long, black set
of stairs into a large, dark room with a bar in
the front and pool tables hidden in the back. A
bouncer leads guests down a dark hall through
a dark door into an even darker room. This room
is packed with people with a small lit-up stage
in front. This is the comedy club showroom. It's
a little mysterious, but unique. I loved it.

The ballet John choreographed hit home for her and her father, because it was about the Holocaust, which John's mother and grandmother survived years ago.
