Purchased tickets from a seller on Times Sq, we were offered a number of venues but chose this club because of its proximity to our hotel, having read the reviews on trip advisor we were expecting the worst. However a lot of complaints and bad reviews appear to centre on the two drink minimum and price of drinks, I have... More

Went here after being offered tickets in Times Square. Only paid $30 for 2 of us (but more than another comedy show we went to). We knew there was a 2 drink minimum. The sodas were $5 each but there was an unlimited sodas option for $15 each so we both got that. Needless to say we only got 2... More

First of all, I give the place 2 stars for the nice treatment we got from one of the comedians. We met Sheba Mason a few nights before in a bar, she told us to come to the show, tell we're her friends so we can get in for free. So we did. The doorman first did not believe us,... More

We went here solely because our friend from out of town got suckered into buying tickets from some guy off the street. Every single thing the guy selling the tickets said was a flat out lie. 1. Despite being assured that the place would be open until 3 AM and had karaoke, the place closed at 1:30 AM and had... More

We went to the 2100 show, which is great for having a meal first. 90 minute show with 4 acts. Very funny comedians and what I especially liked was how different each act was. However please be aware that there is a 2 drink minimum rule in the club, but prices are very reasonable.

I read all the reviews on trip advisor, but decided to take a chance and go anyways. We went in with very low expectations and were pleasantly surprised at how much we wind up enjoying this comedy club. The 2 drink minimum is a standard practice among comedy clubs, as is the seating. Comedy club seating is always very close... More

Although we had the luck of having a few laughs with the comedians we saw last night, the venue and behavior of the staff was terrible. We were forced to order more drinks even though others at our table got away with only ordering one, so much for a two drink minimum. When paying our check we gave the waitress... More

We were approached by lady in Times Square telling about this amazing comedy show. She told us that the show would be filmed for television, even advised about the clothing and such. We bought the tickets thinking it would be an interesting and different experience. Different indeed! When we got to the club, it turned out to be this dark... More

Scam. People touting tickets in Times Square and we were lead to believe it would have established comedians. Far from it, some laughs but they were few and far between. The mandatory two drinks cost more than the tickets to get in.

Finally got to see a good friend of mine headlining. The entertainers were great but the drinks were lacking.
