Q: How old do I have to be to get into the club?
A: You must be 18 or older with a valid ID for admittance into the club. We do allow those under the age of 18 if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Q: Do I need to arrive at the show early?
A: Yes. We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 45 minutes before showtime. Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Our shows frequently sell out and reservations are held only until 30 minutes before showtime. The only way to ensure seating is with an advance ticket purchase, which holds your seat right up to our showtime (this will not ensure group seating together if you show up at showtime and we have a sold out show). If we have guests in need of seating at that time, your reservation will be cancelled.
Q: What is the cover charge?
A: Ticket prices vary from show to show. See our calendar for more information.
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: Yes. We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Traveler's Checks and cash. Personal checks are not accepted.
Q: Is there a drink minimum?
A: There is not a drink minimum but there is a two item minimum in the show room, which can include food or drink. We have a full dinner menu, so you may enjoy food and drinks. An 18% gratuity is added to every bill.
Q: Do you serve food?
A: Yes. Morty's has a wonderful selection of dinner options, appetizers and desserts which are available in the showroom during performances.
Q: Can you accommodate large groups or private parties?
A: Of course. Large groups are welcome, but reservations are strongly recommended. Additionally, large groups should arrive at least 45 minutes before show time to ensure group seating. Our shows frequently sell out and reservations are held only until 30 minutes before showtime. The only way to ensure seating is with an advance ticket purchase, which holds your seat right up to our showtime (this will not ensure group seating together if you show up at showtime and we have a sold out show). If we have guests in need of seating at that time, your reservation will be cancelled.
Private Parties are our specialty. Morty's provides a number of party packages to fit just about any budget. Each package offers you the opportunity to select from dozens of combinations of hors d'oeuvres, entrees, side dishes, and desserts to compliment full or partial access to Morty's bar and, of course, an unabridged private performance by a regular line-up of professional touring comedians. Choose from one of those packages, or customize your own function with the help of one of Morty's Party Planners. See our private party page for details.
Q: What is the dress code?
A: Casual but presentable. Come on folks, you're in public.
Q: Do you have smoke-free shows?
A: Yes. All of our shows are non-smoking.
Q: Are the shows vulgar or dirty?
A: Morty's is especially selective in booking its performers to ensure a standard of professionalism that exceeds industry standards. However, many of the comedians who perform at Morty's include some degree of adult material in their acts. Morty's recognizes that this material does not appeal to everyone - so the best way to see if you will be offended by a comedian is to google them.
Q: Do you permit heckling?
A: Sometimes an act will talk to the crowd. But uninvited "heckling" or any other effort to interfere with a performance which may be disruptive to other guests is not permitted and will result in removal from the show without refund. We request you use our lobby for any loud conversations, telephone usage or texting during the performances. Your ticket allows you to enjoy the show, just like everyone elses ticket allows them to enjoy the show. Don't take that away from them.
Q: Is parking available?
A: Ample free parking is available at Morty's.
Q: How can I get booked to perform at the club?
A: Professional touring comedians seeking to be booked for a performance at the club should contact our booking department.
Q: Do you have an "open mic" night?
A: We sure do. Wednesdays, we host The Great Indiana Mic-Off. It's booked ahead of time - so make sure to check it out and submit. And on Sundays we bring in the best of the Open Mic-ers for the Bowers and Friends show. For info on the open mic nights contact Bowers@mortyscomedy.com.
Q: How can I get advance notice of shows, coupons and other great deals?
