Prayer Dudz and Chance Theater want Stand Up Tuesday to be the best night you can have…a Tuesday in Orange County. Starting 1 hour prior to the show, audience members are welcome to come and hang out in Chance Lounge while partaking in a $3 beer or wine, jello shots, free snacks, and the company of fellow comedy fans! The Chance also has a full bar for patrons who love their drinks with a bit more kick (or no alcohol at all), but no drinking minimums!
