The Big Hunt is still closed for business for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, there will be no stand-up comedy shows in the basement and no food specials. 

Any comedy related questions should be directed to the producers of Underground Comedy.

As soon as it is safe and economically viable, The Big Hunt will reopen. Please follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to stay abreast of any developments. As soon as we know, you’ll all know!

Thank you for the support and please STAY SAFE!
