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

Very low grade comedians. Expensive drinks, and there was a min 2 drink buy with our promo tickets. Would not recommend for a night out in the city

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
