Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) October 25, 2012 -- The Improv Comedy Club and Dinner Theatre hosted a Media and Concierge Showing last Thursday evening at the 4000 square foot venue. Improv Founding Partner Budd Friedman welcomed the guests as he was in town from Los Angeles to meet, greet and catch the hilarious show by comedian Owen Benjamin of TBS' Sullivan and Sons. On the Improv's trademark brick walled stage, Atlanta's up and coming comic Jamie Ward served as host for the evening and funnyman Gene Pompa garnered laughs as the night's opening act. Another highlight of the evening was a surprise closing act by famed comedian George Wallace as he stopped by to check out the new spot.

The evening was complete with upscale cocktails with favorites from Prohibition, East Andrews and Czar.
