Frequently Asked Questions

What’s going on with Comedy Hideaway these days?

(music fades in)
Hello, is it me you’re looking for?…

Hideaway, is that you?

In the hilarious flesh, ladies and gents.

Wait, are you guys back?

WE ARE! COMEDY HIDEAWAY IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT IT IS BACK IN SANTA BARBARA – GOLETA!

REALLY?!

We’re now back with a new restaurant partner!

I know! It’s been so long!  We’ve missed you!  You’ve grown!  How are the kids?
(How’s Jenny?, is Jenny still… y’know…?)

 

…So, where are you located these days?

Our new, WEEKLY(!) Saturday show is located in the Comedy Hideaway Showroom (“On The Wing”) inside Flightline Restaurant Santa Barbara in Goleta, Santa Barbara (right beside the airport, in the wing of the new Flightline!  [formerly High Sierra, formerly-formerly Elephant Bar]).

Sorry, did you say Goleta, Santa Barbara? Which is it?

It’s both? Basically? 93117 ZIP Code, but it’s right off the Santa Barbara Airport and we swear that 505 Firestone Road brings up “Santa Barbara, CA” in Google Maps.  Please, we mean no offense to any city/town/municipality/yokel.

So that’s the WHO/WHAT/WHERE, what about the WHEN/WHY/HOW?

Saturday nights at 7PM and 9:30PM (doors at 6PM and 9PM, respectively);  to make all you Barbarians/Goodlandians chortle;  MAGIC (and incredible sponsors/hosts).

May I buy tickets at the door?

Yes, but be aware that tickets go up $5 at the door.  That means that you’ll be paying $20 instead of the $15 (if you had pre-bought).

What is the age requirement?

Our shows are appropriate for attendees 17 and up.  Obviously, underage patrons are never served alcohol.

What about large parties?

Welcome!  Come on in!  Enjoy the fir-  never mind that last part.  ‘Bit too real for Santa Barbara…

We always love large parties, but we do request that if you have a party larger than 6 people, PLEASE CHECK IN WITH US AT LEAST A HALF-HOUR BEFORE SHOWTIME (6:30PM, 9PM).  The closer it gets to showtime, the less space there is, and the likelihood of having to split-up your party to random parts of the room SKYROCKETS.  Consider yourselves advised!  😀

What time should I get there?

Doors open up to an hour ahead of showtime!  Please arrive at very least a half-hour early (6:30PM for our 7 PM show, 9PM for our 9:30PM show) so that we may get your tickets processed, get you seated, and get your food and drink orders in with the waitstaff before the show starts.  If we can’t seat you due to an ongoing show, you’re ALWAYS welcome to wait, eat, and drink in the adjacent restaurant until Showroom doors are open!

What if I want to eat dinner?

ARRIVE EARLY!

If you arrive BEFORE 6PM, our restaurant partner has graciously offered a 15% discount on meals for our patrons if they eat in the restaurant, proper, before our Showroom doors open at 6PM (for our 7PM show)!  Please have a member of your party check-in with a Comedy Hideaway team member so we can reserve you a table while you eat!  You may eat in our Showroom in the hour between 6PM and 7PM, but the dinner menu will only be offered until 6:30PM at the very latest, small plates after that.

If you want to eat dinner ahead of our 9:30PM show, please be advised that the dinner menu is not offered in our Showroom at 9PM (when the doors open for the second show).  We recommend that you eat in the restaurant, proper, with enough time for you to make it to our Showroom by the time our doors open.

Is there a drink minimum?

We recommend and encourage at least two items to support our hardworking comics and waitstaff. Flightline Santa Barbara has a full bar(!) and an AMAZING menu.

My printer is broken, can I show you the ticket on my phone?

Yes.

My phone and printer are broken. What now?

If you’ve purchased or claimed tickets through our eventbrite service, your name will be on the guest list at the door.

How do I make reservations for promotional vouchers (i.e. Groupon, etc.)?

Type “RSVP” in the field that appears when you click Enter Promotional Code promo code box and type the name of the voucher type you have (not the number).  RSVP options will pop up when you hit reply so select the number of attendees and go through like you would for purchasing tickets.

Also feel free to call us at (805) 364-2999 anytime or email us at ComedyHideaway@gmail.com for reservations.
Please note that we only take a certain number of these per week and reservations aren’t required, albeit they are STRONGLY recommended, to use a promo voucher.

If your intent is to eat and be done with dinner BEFORE the show, you should make reservations with Flightline (still High Sierra through September) Santa Barbara, not Comedy Hideaway.

What should I include in an RSVP message (either on the phone or in an email to ComedyHideaway@gmail.com)?

In an RSVP, please change the subject of the email to “[MM/DD Date] RSVP” and then include:
1) Your name for the reservation
2) The date (and time) you are interested in attending
3) The size of your party
4) The method of purchase (eventbrite, promo voucher, promo VIP, etc).
5) Your phone number (we won’t necessarily contact you, and your RSVP is a reservation by itself, but this should be included just in case!).


Thank you all for your continued support of live comedy!

WE’RE SO VERY EXCITED TO BE BACK TO BRING LAUGHTER TO SANTA BARBARA – GOLETA!
WE COULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT THE LOVE OF YOU, OUR WONDERFUL FANS!
