I bought this on a Living Social --2 admissions including 2 drinks. I don't believe I remember seeing the stipulation that you had to buy 2 drinks per person. There were 5 comedians total. The opener was ok. One comedian was outstanding, two were average and the final was horrible. I was very offended by his act. The bill came... More

I've have fun at local comedy clubs in NYC, but this place was the worst. The web site was wrong, so we got there late. The only good thing was we got in free. Had I paid for it I would have been quite mad. Amateur night at its worst.

Alright, so where to start? This place has pretty shocking reviews, not because it is shocking but because people who have fallen short of the street vendors; who fail to tell you about the fact that you have to buy two drinks have little local knowledge. It's not anyone's faily, I suppose since my last few visits to NYC the... More

Bought these tickets in Times Square for $12 a piece. There is a 2 drink minimum they don't tell you about. But nonetheless a great venue. The comics were absolutely funny and the emcee was engaging and knew how to get a crowd whipped up. We laughed so hard our faces, sides and bellies hurt!! Thank you Dana - our... More

Did not read reviews before buying tix from the street vendor. If you are up for a questionable adventure this is ok. Comedy was funny. However... Like others wrote, this is a dark basement with a disgusting bathroom and no big name comedians as claimed. We paid $15/ticket... The street vendor initially asked for $20. The woman who sat across... More

My Boyfriend and I were in town deciding what were we going to do for the night when we were approached by a man selling comedy show tickets. He was trying to sell us on purchasing two tickets ($20/each)-- which he succeeded. He was quite persuasive-- he even went as far as to show us a binder with actual famous... More

We went to an 11 pm show on a whim and had a blast! The show at the door was $20 per ticket and they told us who would be there (all people I never heard of but very funny). There were some angry people at the door who bought tickets from people in Times Square who promised Eddie Murphy... More

RIP OFF!!! DO NOT GO HERE! The guy on the street sold us these tickets (2 for $40 total including his tip). He told us we had to buy 2 drinks per person, we asked him how much they were - he told us $3-8. We got here, the lady at the front was rude and abrupt, and when we... More

The show was really good! Went with a friend and we both had a great time. Performers are relatively anonymous though (thought I recognized one of them from tv), so don't believe any street vendor that tells you that you're going to the taping of a new tv show with Tina Fey as the host.

Do not believe a word the ticket sellers say in times square. They will give you like 4 or 5 famous names and tell you these people are appearing this week. When you get there, the place is in a run down basement and the performers are not well known. Only the emcee and one act were funny... The rest... More
