We bought our tickets from a lady on Times Square. We were kinda iffy at first but decided to go to the show anyways. The tickets were 20.00 for 2 tickets ( plus the 2 drink minimum per person). We wee though promised a live taping of Comedy Central ( which did not happen) and the theatre was reality small... More

We got a good night of comics and a great fun European audience, but this place is a dump. Sadly a lot of REAL hardcore comedy venues are dumps, but this one takes the cake. However don't judge a book by it's cover because A) we got a good group of comics and everyone had a good time and B)... More

This was by far, our worst experience in NYC. The people were rude. The service was terrible. Before entering the comedy club, we witnessed a screaming/cussing match between a couple of employees. The club itself is a dirty basement. The bathroom was disgusting. A few of the comedians were decent, but most were just not that good. All in all,... More

Many if the reviews regarding the venue are spot on...it's a seedy place. It kind of felt like we were in some guys basement. However, there were many other aspects which we did not experience. Most importantly, the comedians were great! They may or may not be up and coming, or on TV, or whatever they say at on the... More

As other reviews had said, I bought the $10 tickets from a lady in time square and was promised the world. It was a live taping of a Comedy Central show, you'll see comedians you know and recognize and you'll sit at the front (we were two girls). They told us about the two drink minimum so we knew that...

Ok so I took a chance and bought two tickets $20 each for this show off a street vendor. I was really twitched but it turned out to be a great $40 spent. Apparently the sellers work in a way that they get stage time based on the sales they make. So compared to the 100's of $ I could... More

We grabbed the tickets super cheap in Times Square from a guy hawking them on the corner. We figured for the price, we might as well try it. Overall it wasn't horrible, but the place was dirty, unkempt, and the acts were not that great. While we did see a ton of comics, the overall feeling was that this is... More

I had not been to a comedy club before, but asked the person from whom I bought the tickets how raunchy the jokes got, noting that they let 13 year olds in there with adults. She said "not too bad" so I brought my 15 year old granddaughter who regularly sees rated "R" movies. Well, the degree of raunchiness was... More

We got tickets on the street for $10 each. We were told about the 2 drink per person. My daughter ordered chicken strip and they were not very good. Most of the comedians were good. One was disgusting and went on and on even tough the audience didn't even laugh at his raunchy but not funny rant. Pretty much what... More

The comics at this club are amazing, but beware of the people on the street selling you the tickets to attend the club. We were told there was a two drink minimum, and that could be two non liquor drinks. Drink prices were said to be $5-6 for liquor drinks and $3-4 for non liquor drinks When we got to... More
