It was date night and I was totally out of new ideas, so I hit up the Internet and up popped three comedy clubs. Only one was open on Tuesday, so to Helium we went! Tuesday is open mic nite, and it was great. The comics who were just a lot of filthy language with no content were only on... More

I could not believe the disappointing evening I had at the Helium, in Portland, OR. The staff was rude as they bumped into my husband's chair on several occasions & then had the audacity to rudely tell him to scoot in when his chest was up against the table, unable to scoot it any farther. They then proceeded to come... More

Had to write a review of the Valentines Day special drink. Champagne mixed with sprite? The drink was so laughable and novice I couldn't even finish it.

Try Helium comedy club. My wife and I went to see Greg Proops he was pretty good but way too political I enjoyed it but my wife found it off putting. The food was worth the money we had nachos (decent) pork sliders (not so good) BLT ( best ever). Atmosphere was great and we plan on going back to... More

I like the SE area as there is street parking close to the event. First time I have been to a comedy club in Portland so I cannot compare to others. My wife and I were seated right in front of the stage even though we did not pay for reserve tickets. What a bonus. The club is clean and... More

we get to Helium and can't be seated yet. We did a birthday group thing all the girls, it was fun. However, when we went upstairs to the ticket line/bar we got heckled by a group of you know-you knows for being "pretty dressed up ladies." Now this place is very Portlandia.... A very colorful SE Portland crowd. So if... More

Saw Margaret Cho on her last night. The staff was helpful and professional, the venue is larger than one thinks but the sight lines and sound are excellent. Everything went very smoothly. The Village Vanguard in NYC has a one drink minimum so having a two drink minimum in Portland should not be that big a deal.

Great smaller venue. Worst seat in the house still only 15 rows away. I'm always sketchy if I don't know the comedian but this place always gets the best. Great job being done by their talent booker

This was my first visit to Helium and I enjoyed it. We went with friends and had ordered our tickets online. The staff all seemed nice and the service was actually better than I expected. A suggestion I would make is to have a few more servers working the floor during the show. We saw our server 2 times total... More

Helium attracts very big names in comedy for such a small club. They change weekly so there is always a different show. I been 4 times now and always had a great experience with the comedians. The club itself could use improvement. We usually get there early for general admission but have had mixed experiences with the seating. There were... More
