Here's what people are saying about The Main Thing...
The Main Thing comedy shows on Friday and Saturday evenings are hysterical! I love that you can reserve a seat now, and the full-bar is amazing! This is our "go to" place when we want to have a fun evening out with friends, or for a date night!
This intimate venue hosts performances by The Main Thing, a comedy troupe of three actors/musicians who present a couple dozen characters in two acts of side-splitting humor
We haven't missed a show since its opening in North Little Rock. A great place for a really fun evening. I think each show gets better than the one before!
We had the very best time! Everyone was so friendly! The coffee bar and drinks were good and the show itself was WAY better than we hoped for!
