We had a really good evening we ached from laughing at the comedians but felt ripped off by the venue as we paid 30 dollars each when most people were charged 20 and everyone had to have 2 drinks each at over 11dollars per drink.

This is such a waste of money. We bought tickets in time square for this (30 dollars for 2 people) and were told you had to reserve a table and show up half an hour early. When we got there we were greeted by a rude woman at the entrance podium and were told you had to buy minimum 2... More

Absolutely not recommended. This was a total waste of money. We left while number two was on and just about managed to get passed the doorman without having to buy the two drinks they demanded us to drink.

We were sold our tickets in Times Square, normally don't buy from ticket touts but the guy selling them was quite funny and we managed to get them at a reduced price ($10) so we decided to give it a try. We arrived at the comedy club in high hopes having been recommended to catch the New York comedy scene... More

We got discount tickets on Broadway you can negotiate. Started out as $30 per ticket got 2 for $20. You have a 2 drink per person limit, we had 2 sodas and 2 bottle water $20 plus tax and tip. 2 bathrooms in the whole place plenty of waiting. If you sit in the back could be hard to see... More

My friend and I bought discount tickets from a man wandering Times Square (there were a lot of them, hounding us during our entire week-long stay). We were excited to go to a comedy club, but the excitement quickly dissipated. We were ushered into a dark cellar room to wait while the previous show wrapped up. As other guests arrived,... More

I've got to say, after buying an impromptu ticket from a vendor in Times Square and then checking Trip Advisor, these reviews scared me. It's not a scam, at least I didn't see how it would be. You turn up, you order two drinks minimum each as stipulated on the ticket (non alcoholic is fine) and you watch some comedians... More

A small venue, but very cozy. The comedians very over average, some really good. The show was a bit too long and without any breaks. Two drinks minimum as in most of the NY comedy clubs. A bit overpriced, but all in all ok!

Loved this show!. The magician was amazing. With no special effects and illusions, only showing old school magic tricks he was keeping all auditorium with "How?!" face after all his tricks until the end. Our 11 and 12 yo girls laughed non stop. My hubby and myself enjoyed it alot too. This is Saturday 1pm show and is 55 minx... More

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.
