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.

The entertainment was fun, but the venue was dingy--dark basement. The worst part was the bar-they only served---gulp---"house" alcohol. I mean German Vodka? Really.....NO! It tasted like nail polish remover. Best to order a bottle beer. The snack menu is minimal--eat before you go

We were approached to buy tickets to this dreadful comedy club by a guy on the street in Times Square. What a mistake we made! We were sold two tickets for the price of one - only once we had paid for the tickets did we see there was a two drink minimum per person. This is not a problem... More

Got tickets on the street, when we arrived we were met by the bouncer who told us it was sold out. Really? How rude to sell tickets on the Street and not be allowed in. SCAM~ Don't fall for it. When we asked to speak to the manager she was extremely RUDE to put it nicely. Down right awful miserably... More

Got our tickets on Times square so didn't pay full price but for a night in a dark basement listening to comedy fabulous. Perhaps we were lucky on that front. Drinks were expensive at 10 bucks for a bottled beer with a minimum of 2 per person which was a bit much.

The pricing was fair. We paid $10 a ticket from a random guy on the street. Although we were suspicious, it turned out well. We went on a Saturday night, and they packed us in like sardines. Be prepared to get close and personal. Most of the comedians were pretty funny. Most of the staff is rude. There is a... More

Don't be persuaded by the guys that sell tickets to this dump. Complete waste of time and money. Attending a funeral would be more fun and cheaper!
