My review is short as we did NOT attend!!! Read all of the reviews... they scam people and lie to them to sell tickets!! When you call to ask a question and then go on to verify what the salesperson told you they act shocked and in awe that the person would lie the way they did. Hummmm... well I... More

So after my first comedy experience on Broadway I got with the game pretty quick. Here's what needs to pop into your mind when the charismatic salesman approaches you with your tickets- 1- That is not a discount, you aren't that special. That's the price for everyone, every night 2- The ghost of Robbin Williams will not be performing, in... More

We bought these tickets from street vendors in Time Square. They made some mighty big promises about top headline comedians and priority seating. Not so much. We were shoved on the end of a table with 6 other couples and had to buy 2 drinks minimum. As for the big names, again not so much. Nonetheless, there were a range... More

My wife and I purchased tickets on the street from a vendor, who offered a discount for attendance. The tickets had a $25 face value, and we purchased them for $20 apiece. The seller was also one of the acts appearing at the show. From what I can gather, he was offered "stage time" in exchange for selling a given... More

We often go to a comedy club at home so we thought what the heck. We bought our tickets from a street seller. Never pay face value. According to the website, we got a bit of a deal ($30 for two). The room was dark and had the expected brick-wall decor. We got to see 7 comics, including the emcee.... More

You will NOT see the big name comedians promised by the ticket hustlers in Times Square.The Broadway Comedy club should stop this practice as soon as possible,unless they don't care about their reputation.

I go to comedy gigs in every city I travel too and this was by far the most terrible I have ever gone to! We were led to believe it was going to be a recorded show with well known comedians, cheap drinks and a large crowd, it wasn't recorded, there were no well known comedians, the comedians seemed to...

The admission price was alright and the comedians were pretty good, DC Benny was there but saved his best stuff for Last Comic Standing I guess. It is in a basement with benches and you are invading everyone's person space when you sit down. The price of the "mandatory" drinks are through the roof and the wait staff had a... More

The whole thing was a big lie.....:( When we came there, it was old and bad maintained sitting places. The good thing was that they had ok selection of beer and... More

Wish we would have looked at the reviews. The seating is banquet tables in tight rows where you are placed with strangers. My husband angled us an end which saved us. 2 drink minimum. My rum and diet tasted funny and gave me a headache. Some of the material was funny. I think we could have found a better way... More
