We had gone to the Greenwich Village Comedy Club a while back and they were only selling a combined ticket, so we have had these tickets for the Broadway Comedy Club to use. After reading some reviews, we figured it would be terrible, but that we should give it a shot since we already have tickets. I called to make... More

We didn't have a reservation but got in so I appreciate that part. Getting your ticket in Times Square is not a reservation, it's better to get your tickets online. Hated the drinks, I didn't mind the two drink minimum rule but at least make real drinks if you're going to charge that much. When my chips and salsa came... More

Horrible horrible horrible. We were lied to by Tyler who sold on tickets on the street. He said the drinks would cost 5$. There was nothing under 10$. He did not mention we would need a reservation-luckily I read the back of the ticket which instructed me to do so. The waitress- don't get me started. What a miserable thing.... More

one of the worst experiences of my life. I've never written a review about anything before but this place (which I just walked out on) was so bad that I had to come on here and write this just to process it for myself! The atmosphere was dark, dingy and extremely uncomfortable, the comedians were so bad and totally not... More

We (a group of friends - 21 year olds) were spending 3 days in NY. A woman approached us saying that they were filming for Comedy Central, and they wanted us to be part of the 50 younger people at the front of the audience, with apparently 500 people in a bigger audience behind us. She also told us that... More

We knew what we were getting ourselves into when we bought the tickets. We got 2 tickets for $20 for an improv show on the street. I think we could have gotten them cheaper. We knew about the two drink minimum or else we may have been really disappointed and mad like other reviewers. The show was actually pretty funny.

All I can say to begin is that thank God we had a livingsocial coupon for this or I'm not sure I'd ever be able to forgive myself. When you call or speak to anyone there, they will assure you that every single "comedian" to don the stage is a "headliner". Nothing could be more untrue. While one front of... More

I was walking over Times Square and a certain man named "Dennis" was yelling all the time "Tina Fey tonight on comedy central!". Unfortunately I couldn't connect to Wifi and check if this is real, so I decided to trust the man and bought the ticket for the show. I asked him twice if Tina Fey will really be there,... More

We were lied to by a man selling tickets at Times Square. He gave us completely false information regarding who was performing there, in order to sell his tickets, then run off. After three trips, there and back, we finally got our refund. Three trips that took time out of our 5 precious days in New York. Avoid this at... More

Street vendor misrepresented acts who were on and it seems (according to other reviews and the admission of staff at venue) to be an ongoing issue. Took a 3rd visit till we finally got our money back.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
